Adjustable triple clamp

To those running them on the gen 4, what offsets are you using?

I guess nobody has a set? I ordered mine with the -/+ 2mm eccentrics so I guess I'll figure it out.

May want to direct LDH to this thread, I'm sure he would have some input.

You will probably find you want to experiment anyway. I'm not sure there is a "magic" number for offset, different riding styles, and setups = different numbers.
FWIW, Attack's are usually 30mm offset with 0 bushings. So your + -2mm would give you a choice of 28mm or 32mm. I don't know what OEM/standard offset is for a Gen4 (Japanese seemingly loved 26mm for years but have come around more lately). 32mm offset will be quicker/lighter turning than 28mm, generally at the expense of having less "feel". Moving the forks forward to 32mm offset shortens trail number, 28mm offset lengthens trail (from 0 offset bushing).

Ok well this gives me some idea of what to look for after making adjustments and what direction to go. I'm using robby moto clamps. I don't know what offset they start at but I atleast have an idea on which direction to head depending on how the bike feels.

You are also going to have to post a lot more info. Like what shock, link, wheelbase etc.

I'm going to be using a ktech shock with the Kyle racing linkage and I'm not sure on wheelbase yet and I'm open to suggestions. I'm sure my tuner will have an idea but I like to know as much info going into things as possible.

What other companies have adjustable triple clamps for the gen 4 aside from Attack Racing? They're the only ones I've come across since 2011.
