changing the offset on '08 450sxf

Recommended Posts

i cant find my manual. can anybody explain to me how to go to 18 deg. i was told the top clamp bolt is a cam and changes deg as you turn it but i am not sure if this is correct.

let me think

remove the triple clamp from the bike

under the lower clamp, there will be this big nut

loosen it and ya can take out the stem, this stem have a off centre hole.

and turn it 180deg around and ya will get 18mm offset.

hope this helps (my 06 450sx works in this manner)

LIke Rookie said you take it apart and rotate the stem in the lower tripple clamp. It is not magic, its a change and you may like it better but???

BTW you are not changing rake angle, you are changing the offset from the stem to the fork tubes which changes "trail" as well as the inertia moment of the fork rotating around the stem and its all compramises, less offset improve the inertai moment and screws up the trail & vice versa, if one was just better KTM would build it that way.
