You might have been looking at the complete upper clamp. I was referring to just the handlebar mounts (CL001??)

1998 and 1999 are different. In 1999, the outer fork tubes are larger in diameter, requiring a new (back then) upper clamp (one with larger mounting holes for the outer fork tubes).

OK, I got it right. It is CL001. For a minute there, I was thinking I had posted the upper clamp part number.

Ohhhhh, OK. I see what you are saying. They are not listed as fitting a 1998 model. I think they will fit, and here is why. The Kawasaki part number for the stock 1998 KX250 lower handlebar clamp is 46012-1264. This same part number is also used on the following models:

KX125-L4 (KX125) (2002)

KX125-M1 (KX125) (2003)

KX125-M2 (KX125) (2004)

KX250-K3 (KX250) (1996)

KX250-K4 (KX250) (1997)

KX250-K5 (KX250) (1998)

KX250-L1 (KX250) (1999)

KX250-L2 (KX250) (2000)

KX250-L3 (KX250) (2001)

KX250-L4 (KX250) (2002)

KX250-M1 (KX250) (2003)

KX250-M2 (KX250) (2004)

KX250-N1 (KX250F) (2004)

KX500-E10 (KX500) (1998)

KX500-E11 (KX500) (1999)

KX500-E12 (KX500) (2000)

KX500-E13 (KX500) (2001)

KX500-E14 (KX500) (2002)

KX500-E15 (KX500) (2003)

KX500-E16 (KX500) (2004)

KX500-E8 (KX500) (1996)

KX500-E9 (KX500) (1997)

It is listed as fitting the newer models, but since the stock part has the same part number as models listed on the Renthal site, I think that it will work.

I own a new pair of the Renthal CL001 adapters. I don't have them handy to check right now, but I don't remember seeing anything to make me think they would not work.

Also, they do not include the rubber damping bushings. It is just the mounts.

I hope this helps.
