Probably a same old question, '06 KX250
« on: July 13, 2020, 08:11:49 AM »
Evening, hope everyone's been doing okay through this whole pandemic deal we all landed in.

I'll apologize now as I can see from searching and reading, both here and elsewhere, that this has been asked a few times.

All I can say is that I'm a bit slow and honestly I could kind of use this info being spoon fed to me if anyone can help  :-P

Down to it; 2006 KX250. What's the best alternate OEM bolt-on Triple Clamp solution to go toward keeping the front wheel in check?

I saw someone here use 2002 KX items to address the offset, but I'm still unsure if this is the usual / best route or if any KXF items fit without modification or is a better option? I can't really justify blingy aftermarket items, much as I'd like to.

I can deal with bar mounts, just as an example.
I'd prefer not to break out a TIG welder and wouldn't want sleeves around the fork legs.

I'm happy enough with the fork and shock themselves, I'm no pro after all and personally I think they're alright now they're set up.

I am going to stick a PC Linkage on the back purely so I can tick it off and say I've tried it.
I don't expect much from it and obviously have higher hopes for a triple clamp change than this linkage, but I will fit it.

I will not speak ill of the ol' girl, but I think it's fair to say there are improvements to be had handling wise and I am sure everyone here is much further along and much better educated than I am, so any help will be much appreciated and thank you for your advice and expertise.

Thanks!

GET a rg3 triple clamps or a kxf triple clamp a model with the least off set , look up mxa test on kxf models should tell you the off sets, personally me i would go rg3.
