Honda triple clamps for 35mm forks
Wanting a plug and play setup to convert my CB350K2 from 33mm to 35mm forks, I did some research on the web and picked up a couple pairs of 1972 SL350K2 triple trees from eBay. The lowers have the double pinch bolts and measure 35mm diameter. However, the uppers measure just 33mm diameter.
Is the SL350K2 upper triple clamp similar in design to the one that was originally fitted on my CB350 to capture the fork? I need to be able to adjust the front ride height by raising or lowering the forks through the triple clamps. Am I missing something? My research indicated this was a bolt on affair. Am I supposed to machine the holes in the upper clamp to fit 35mm forks?
I know some of you guys are going to say just get CB750 or CB550 clamps but I've already been down that road once and don't want to mess with swapping steering stems. Thanks.
