Our clamp set comes with All Balls tapered bearings pre-installed. There is absolutely no modification or additional parts, or relocation of anything, or any stretching of cables required.
They simply bolt up exactly as stock, using the factory service manual.
The OEM clamps are cast metal pieces that are flimsy, hollowed out on the bottom and tend to flex under any loads. Our clamps are solid 6061 billet Aluminum. Our clamps eliminate the flex and disconnected feeling from the front end.
Your bike will stay planted in the corners and ride true in a straight line. You will feel the difference at highway speeds or parking lot speeds.
|We recommend following the factory Honda manual for disassembly and assembly of your new Traxx-Rite Billet Aluminum Triple Clamps. Also, only a high quality digital, self-calibrating torque wrench should be used. No clicker-type, no needle-type, and DEFINITELY no fish scales.
