    Robem Tripple Clamps

    Can you change offset bushings with the lower bearing on the stem? Are the bushings sets, upper and lower or does just one bushing change offset?

    Stock here, with aluminum stem. They'll eventually get some wear, years from now, and then I'll replace if I still have the bike and care.

    Next Question. I ordered the aluminum steering stem. What did you use for bearings? Stock or upgrade to All Balls Bearing Kit? Ed

    Robem Tripple Clamps

    Alright, I just placed my order. I got 26 mm. Also added 25/27 and 24/28. That should be plenty to play with. Ed

    Sure, Stock forks w Ktech internals raised 8mm (measured to top of fork tube, not cap) above Robem triples w 26mm offset insert. KTech Razor RR out back w roaring toyz rear link. Cheers, Tim Padden

    Thank you. Can you share the rest of your set up? Rear shock, linkage? Any other form mods like tube height? Ed

    I run the 26mm offset as well.

    Lemme know if you're ever headed to Summit Point or elsewhere to the south a bit. It would be nice to meet in person. Since I have to get around D.C., Baltimore, and Philly with a motorhome and a trailer, getting to NJMP isn't worth the effort to me these days. Good luck!

    Yes, this info is very helpful, I appreciate you taking the time to share. BTW- I'll be at NJMP 10/15 and 10/16, last dates of the year for me. Ed

    I hope this is helpful. Fork offset is the biggest determinant of trail, which is the most significant factor in how the bike steers (does it tend to fall into corners versus does it need constant light pressure on the bars to retain lean angle, or right in between) and the feel you get through the bars when cornering. Generally, 24-28mm fork offset is the accepted range, with personal preference often dictating where in that range you're most comfortable. More offset yields less trail, and less offset yields more trail. Front and rear ride heights, raising and lowering, and tire diameter, also impact front trail but to a much lesser degree. Rear ride height is the primary determinant of anti-squat for a bike with a fixed-position swing arm pivot, like the 07, so that usually leaves front ride height changes (forks up or down several millimeters) for fine tuning trail. My shock length is about 315mm. The end of my fork tubes is 25mm above the upper edge of the upper triple clamp. I run no more than a inch of static sag front and rear. I started with the fork ends at 20mm above the triple but I prefer the feel at 25mm (less trail and a smidgen more front end weight bias). I use Pirelli slicks, 120/70 front and 180/60 rear. I'm comfortable with the feel I have in the bars, notwithstanding that the front feels kinda numb. I attribute the latter primarily to flex in the forks and frame filtering out some of what could otherwise be felt in the bars, pegs, and seat. I've used Dunlop slicks as well, but prefer Pirelli; they are lighter in weight and seem to provide more warning than the Dunlops before they let go.

    Sorry, I can't comment on fuel stabilizer as I have no personal experience with it. But I've noticed that my two stroke fuel seemingly never goes bad, so I believe it entirely possible to add a component which keeps the fuel " together" longer. I've had regular ethanol fuel mixed for two stroke use last two years with no special storage efforts at all.

    why is my used 2015 fz07 bike set up like this ?

    i didnt know that was a thing, either. ive only ever heard to loosen your grip on the handles if/when that happens, that trying to manually correct it back to straight is a good way to end up sideways. ive never experienced one, so no idea if thats accurate though

    I'm going to remember that sage advice, thank you

    Robem Tripple Clamps

    Thank you. I have the Razor RR Shock at 319 mm and AP original dog bone. This combo gives me 13 degree swing-arm angle. I was thinking of the 26mm offsets as well. i was thinking of getting 25/27 and 24/28 to have for more tuning options and while they are available since they are specific to the clamps. Did you raise the fork tubes in the clamps at all as part of your tuning? Or do the different offsets correct that? Ed

    @sweetscience, do not forget to post a ride report. I am curious how you like your new setup.

    It does.... I used to put that in everything I "stored". I live in MN, so that means anything with a motor gets stored at some point . Since I switched to non-ethenol/non-oxygenated fuel in every engine that isn't a car/truck, I haven't run "Sta-bil". I haven't had any fueling related issues. My personal opinion- Ethanol in todays fuel is the main problem. If you buy fuel from a high volume station, and run it in your car/truck- all is right with the world. If you attempt to use that same fuel in something that may "sit" for several months, you may regret that choice. I'm big fan of "Sta-bil", and I think it helps negate the effects of ethanol in todays fuel. I'm by no means an expert on fuels, I'm just sharing my experiences -
  23. Heres a great speed wobble video

    Robem Tripple Clamps

    I've got the Robem triples, with 26mmm offset, for my 41mm forks. Also using the AP MotoArts Gen 2 linkage and a KTech DDS Pro shock. I haven't tried a different fork offset but if I were so inclined, I'd try the 28mm offset (same as I've got on my Kramer). The bike handles well enough, and has no bad habits, but the "feel" of what the tires are doing is inferior to what I experience with the Kramer (not surprising that GP quality frame and components provide better feel). If you want measurements of anything, let me know.
  26. Does anyone have or have experience with Robem's Adjustable Tripple Clamps (or any other Brand) for stock 41mm forks? Looking to upgrade to a set, just curious what others are running and which offsets. Trying to determine which offset bushing sets to get. Also looking for feedback on how they improved overall performance and any set up notes you may be willing to share. Ed
  27. Definitely interesting - keep us posted on whatever you hear back. I see they also make a rear shock and I'm wondering where that stacks up against something like a K Tech Razor R Lite for the price.

    Open the lid on the fuel tank with your spare key (because you can't remove key until it's closed). My ears are crap, but I would get an ear down close to open lid and turn ignition to hot with my main key. I would think it would "resonate" like a drum, the fuel pump sound. Listen - can you hear the fuel pump do anything unusual. Thinking it will pressurize injection system and then slow down to a stop clicking. There's a filter in there, is it scaled over? Or not, just a guess And I would want to know, if that fuel line connector under tank, has not been damaged by forcing it back together. And there's that air pressure sensor on clinder 1 vacuum line (above throttle bodies) - might need to proof all it's connections for air leaks, and probably has a resistance "range" it works over. Is it reporting to ECU values that are not an error, but on the upper or lower end of the range (so it's not throwing codes but still a problem)
