I'm hoping the Applied clamps are really good because I just put a set on my '08. The price was really good at $342.00 from CRF's Only but expect to wait a couple of weeks if you want black. :thumbsup:

Thanks man. :thumbsup: The 500AF is going slowly at the moment since I'm enjoying the 450 so much and it's not a rush to have two bikes. When it gets too hot to ride here, I'll spend more time on the conversion. :lol:

This is how it sits for now.

Thank you and I will definitely let you know. :ride:

Forgot to mention that the only issue I had mounting everything up was with the brake line guide. I had to notch a bit out of my numberplate to clear it.

I also had to run one of the short tank cap vents as there wasn't any room to get the vent hose under the bar pad but, of course, that was a Fatbar issue not one with the clamps. :lol:

I have black TAG Metals clamps onn my 05 and PT fat bars. They seem really nice...3 large hex bolts rather than two.

Do some reading up on each of the clamps. They all have their unique advantages. The RG3 is rated high for quality, vibration damping and crash protection but at close to $750 complete (upper/lower with EVO bar) is BIG money. You can certainly limit the search if you are seeking non-oem offset. Not all offer those.

Good luck.

Thanks man. I bought a set of '07 clamps (24mm) and preferred them w/out the HPSD so that's what I'm running with the Applied clamps. :thumbsup:

So I guess the next question is whats the best offset to run for an 06 crf450?

the cheap and easy way is a 08 clamps a (22mm)

i got a 08 lower and a Fly racing upper all done for under $180:thumbsup:

I'd stick with the 24's if it were me. I didn't care for the 22's on my '08 at all.

whats everyone think the best offset to run on a 09? and for starters what is the 09 stock?

Stock is 20mm offset.

Chassis/Suspension

•Frame, steering head and swingarm modifications permit a reduction in triple-clamp offset (22 to 20mm).
