Thanks for the feedback.
My stock clamps I think have twisted a touch and so my suspension isn't working properly. It won't go down any further that 1 inch from bottoming out and no matter what preload I run, it doesn't feel any different or change the working range.
I guess I need to pull the trigger and buy these clamps.
I too find my R drifts out wider than bikes around me, out of corners. If these clamps fix that, I will be stoked!
1. Are you sure that the the clamp is actually "twisted" (i.e., damaged)? Have you tried untighening all of the pinch bolts and see if things "come loose?" A lot of times after a crash, a "twisted" triple clamp (as a result of a crash) is actually just the forks catching a bind in the triple which makes for a misalignment. When loosening, if you hear a noticiable "click," then that is probably, at least in part, what is going on. Try this and see what happens.
2. Even if your triple clamp was bent, it would not be a major factor impacting your fork travel. By, "it won't go down any further than 1 inch from bottoming out...
" do you mean that the forks won't compress further than 1 inch from the bottom? I don't know these newer gens (I think you have a '15 R?), but I know for the first gens that I race, the "bottom" of the fork travel is certainly not zero. I think it's like 15-25mm. So maybe 1" is actually right where you want it to be. How much do you weigh? What is the spring rate in the forks?
3. If you are running wide on the exit, I would look at rear suspension: spring rate / preload / compression. Your rear shock spring could be too soft; or you don't have enough pre-load or compression dampening.
