Wow. Blow the dust off this one.

gato - did Scotts build it for you? I stuck with reworked OE forks because of the offset issue and that I prefer a Scotts on the XR for what I ride with it. But....Emig can build any offset you like. He engineers and machines the stuff right there on site. No subs except for anodizing. I reckon he could be convinced to make a set of clamps that would use a Scotts type bar clamp/damper for ya.

Sorry guys, I missed these replies. SCOTTS & BRP decided that with Honda discontinuing the 650R, that there wouldn't be enough demand to put these into production. But BRP has been getting some calls about these tripleclamps, and called me last week to talk about getting the ball rolling.

I talked to Emig before I started this project and he was not willing to make me a set of tripleclamps to work with anything but his own stabilizer, and he wouldn't consider making them with a custom offset for me either.

I should know more about where this is going later this week. I'll post back when I do.

You're right about the Scott's dip stick tower pin mount, it blows. You've got a very nice design there. I happen to be a mechanical engineer and your design looks clean with an efficiant use of materials. And your solid modeling's not bad ether.

Thanks. I spent a lot of time designing and modeling these.

They're probably going to be a little bit more expensive than BRP's regular tripleclamp-sets, just because the machining is a little more intricate, but that should give you some idea on price.

Haysuess,

Somewhere you asked about headlights. Regardless of the fork set up, I'll

be running an SV650 headlight with universal fork mounts. Will that work?

Also, I run motard wheels sometimes, and I ride a lot of tight eastern stuff.

Will the offset work for me?

Yeah, I had asked who might want to run the stock 650 headlight (guessing nobody) and who might want to run a CRF headlight (looks good, but it's still only a 35W headlight). I just need to know whether to add bosses to the lower tripleclamps for those mounts. I'm not familiar with your light setup, but if they mount to the stock fork tubes, they should mount to the CRF forks tubes just as easily. The spread is a little bit wider, but not enough that I imagine it would cause any fitment problems. With 26mm offset at the tripleclamps, the combined offset (between the tripleclamps and the axle) is still about 2.5mm tighter than the stock forks. I can't say how it will handle, or how it might work for you though, because I haven't even got to test a set myself yet.

Cheap price, light weight plastic, fantastic reflector.

Will also handle any watt bulb if your stator is up to it.

I'm thinking 80/130.

It's been a long time and I don't even own an XR650R anymore, but several people have inquired about these tripleclamps recently and we just launched GatosBros, so figured we might as well make these available. At least a small batch. Should know more about pricing later this week, but please post-up if you're interested so I have some idea how many sets we should make.

Spent the last couple days tuning-up these old CAD files, making some small revisions and improvements. Incorporated the handlebar perch mounts that we developed for our KTM stabilizer mounts (patents pending). With this system, the handlebar perch height is adjustable (using different spacers and topscaps), and the way it's set-up now, there are four different positions that the handlebars can be mounted in: 1) -3mm, 2) +3mm, 3) +12mm, 4) +18mm. Although if you want to run an underbar-mounted steering stabilizer, you're pretty much limited to positions 3 and 4, but if you want to run the bars closer than that, you probably shouldn't be running a stabilizer under the bars anyway (too tall). Also streamlined the tripleclamps around the pinchbolts, made some revisions to the webbing and relief cuts on the underside of the tripleclamps, and a few other small cosmetic enhancements.
  • 26mm offset (vs. stock 24mm offset) in order to compensate for the reduced offset at the axle
  • geometry optimized for Scotts steering stabilizer AND forward-mount frame clamp
  • full range of steering (80 degrees - same as stock) & steering stops in stock location
  • handlebar position (height & offset) adjustable
  • designed to use KTM handlebar perches (any, including rubber-mounted PDHS perches)
  • re-use stock XR650R steering stem & bearings (no modifications)
  • no fender clearance issues
