By all means keep me posted. So does this set-up raise up the bars etc?Can you use 7/8 or the 1 1/8 bars in the clamps? Gene

The bars have to be raised to clear the damper. Ron is planning to raise the bars and move them forward also. Probably about an inch each way. He is planning to supply a choice of 7/8 or a 1 1/8 with an option to get both. Since I just got the 1 1/8 bars and an adaptor, I could go either way but will probably go with the 1 1/8 bar clamps and scrap the adaptor. Ron is trying to work a design that will give the maximum flexibility and possibly be portable to other triple clamps he supplies. Time will tell!

Do you know when they will be ready for delivery?. What 1 1/8" bars do you have?(width/height?model) I don`t want to have to buy longer cables. Thanks

The latest word is a prototype will be ready in a week or so and if it works out the triple clamps will be put in production. There was a snag with the custom rubber cones and hes going back to the CRF450 cones. Im happier about that myself.

Since I needed taller bars, I picked up the Protaper Contour Pastrana FMX 02-4810
Width: 30.5 (775mm) Height: 4.75 (121mm) Pullback: 2.17 (55)
Along with an adaptor to mount them to the stock clamp. Works great for now but they are buzzy. Didnt have to get longer cables but I did have to reroute them.

The extra height is super! Seems much easier to stand up and it is much more comfortable standing!

Dont know if the extra height of the SUB will be a problem. Oh, Im running the QS and it comes with longer throttle cables. I think Ill be able to get by with the current cables with the new clamp, but I really wont know until I try it.

Any idea on how long production would take? I am really looking forward to trying this system out on the piggy. Thanks for taking your time to get all of this set up!

Question on this setup, Does this setup allow the bars to be moved forward and backward on the tree, to adjust the feel of the steering??

I came acrost a guy that is makeing a set simular to what you are describing here. His system allows for the bars to be moved forward or backward to 4 differant positions so that you can tune how responcive the forks are to the handlebars. This is a trick MXers and Trail guys have been doing to smaller bikes, with the bars back either on top of or behind the the stem the bike tends to be more stable, good for highway runs where quick turns are not as big a deal. If you move them forward over the fork tubes the bike tends to be more responcive to the bars, and may give back some of the BRPs sluggish trail manners. I guess pretty much the same effect as altering the rake angle.

Well, if it's Ron Wallace of RSW Racing. Rons web site is: http://www.rswracing.com/ then it is the same guy. And yes Ron was talking about adjustable bar clamps.

that be the guy, I have not talked to him in a while how is his project coming, and he seems to know his stuff and his parts seem pretty well made. I have seen it on other MX bikes
