Hi guys,

Is the upper triple clamp from a 1000K5 compatible with a 1000K1?

The diameter of the outer fork tubes is the same (ø 50mm) but I’m not sure if the angles and distances between the holes in the clamp are the same.

Cheers,
Erik.

Hm, okay, not the answer I was hoping for. I have LSL heightened clip-ons at home from my K5 days. The ones for the K1 are slightly different because of the differences in the placement of the bolts to clamp the forklegs. I’ll just have to see if I can get away with it. God forbid I have to go on a diet to comfortably reach the clip-ons! 😅

Thanks for your answer!

Another issue is the location of the ignition switch mounting boss. I think that this impacts on the functioning of the steering lock. The hole on the underside for the clip-ons is also different. I think K1 is threaded while K5 is unthreaded oval.
