Vortex Triple Clamps?

Any have these? Are these all show and no go?

(admittedly; they look a lot sweeter than stock)

Re: Vortex Triple Clamps?

The main problem you'll run into is clearance of everything.

I had custom Harris on mine and the stops had to be set so tight the thing had the turning radius of a Peterbuilt.

Re: Vortex Triple Clamps?

Are you referring to the triple clamps or clip-ons?

Clicky - this is what I am looking at

Re: Vortex Triple Clamps?

I guess no one has tried this triple clamp?

Re: Vortex Triple Clamps?

The Vortex top clamp is just that - a top clamp. It isn't a full triple clamp that is noticibly stiffer or allows for adjustments. Sure, they say it's stronger and will help eliminate fork flex, but hard racing also claims their "ram air" for the 929 made massive improvements.
My all show, no go.

Re: Vortex Triple Clamps?

That's what I figured. Thx for the reality check.

Though; it does look nice.

Hard racing makes a ram air kit for the 929?
