    It's been a while, but I had one and don't remember any clearance issues. Will verify fit as soon as we can get samples made.

    Not for the L, no. Think we might just use the R conversion tripleclamps and add steering stops to the L frames. Ordered an XR400 oil cooler so we can make something that will incorporate the oil cooler mounts into the steering stops.

    Sorry for taking so long to reply. We finally found a machine shop who is able to make these for us in small quantities at reasonable prices. We're just figuring out costs on a few last things and then we'll be taking pre-orders. Will be contacting everyone on our list as soon as we've nailed-down final pricing and have an estimated delivery date.

    Hi all. Been awhile since we last updated. Am in the process of designing a fixture for the clamps. Progress is being made, and I will be sure to follow up with updates as they come. Will be accepting pre-orders when we have an expected completion date so we don't keep anyone waiting.

    I'm in for a set! Let me know when they are going to be ready for order. I'd like to get the forks changed for riding this summer with the BRP.

    Super Interested. I'm having an upper made at the moment for this very purpose but when you come up with pricing for the set I'd consider upgrading the whole thing. :clap

    Bump for an update. Any chance of seeing these this summer?

    You might throw up so info on SMJ too. I think there would be a ton of people interested. Especially now that a set of forks can be had pretty cheap.

    Thanks for the continued interest in this everyone! I'm confident we will have these available by summertime. Promise they will be worth the wait! Everyone who has pm'd or replied here will get an email as soon as we have everything squared away with dates and pricing.

    Jesse started a thread on SMJ awhile ago, but that was back when we were looking for a SCOTTS or BRP to make them.

    Took us a while to raise enough money to have all these tripleclamps made, but we didn't want to take money from anyone until we had parts here ready to ship. We've got a batch of these being made right now and if you've already contacted us about purchasing a pair of these tripleclamps, we'll follow-up with you to see if you're still interested. Rob will follow-up with pricing and more info soon. Thanks for your patience.

    Yes, they're being made right now, and should be available soon-ish. Wish we could tell you exactly when, but the truth is that we don't know. Will keep everyone posted though.

    CR/F conversion tripleclamps are finished... finally. We just need to install a set to verify fitment. We're down in Morgan Hill, CA. Anybody in the south bay have an XR650R that we could borrow for an afternoon? Will hook you up with a $100 discount if you want to buy a pair of tripleclamps. Product and pricing info will be up on our website soon, but most of them are already sold. There will probably be a few sets left over, but not sure how many until we talk to everyone on the list.

    Jesus,
    Been a few since I expressed interest and picked a good time to renew my interest. What price? Is this for complete triple clamp and stem; plug and play?
    Looking good!

    Yeah, it took us a while. Mostly just because we've had so much going on, it was tough to scrape together enough money to have a batch of these tripleclamps made. Hard to prioritize something like this when it's most likely a one-shot deal, not exactly a money-maker, you know? Will be a few days before we can nail-down the final price because there are some cosmetic blemishes that we have to talk to the machine shop about. Nothing that will affect the performance in any way, but they're not up to our standards, so we'll be selling them at some kind of discounted price.

    Sorry, not sure how many sets are sold yet. If you're interested, we'll add you to the list and let you know if there are any left when we get to your name. No commitment or deposit required.
