I think im getting a KX65 front end with stock KX clamps. whats the cheapest way to mount them to my KLX. I have KX60 forks right now on it. I will have both the KLX and KX clamps. I have access to machine shop tools and its just my play bike so it doesnt need to be bling just functional.



any advice would be great:D

You have to remove the weld from the both stems 65 and 110. Install the 110 stem in the KX clamps and re-weld.

The 110 Stem is better left up in the 65 clamp a 1/4in no more and weld to get a full nut on top.

Its not a hard job just takes some time a patience!!



I used the RB bearings.

I have a KX tree with the stems already swapped out (perfectly spaced)-- looks factory. I'd sell the setup for $90 shipped. Let me know if you're interested. EM for pics. --L*64

Don't bother welding, its too much of a hassle to get it spaced just right. Go with the bearing kit from pax. I used it and it works perfectly on my 110 with pro circuit kx65 triple trees, Plus he walked me through just how to swap the bearings(because the 110 bearings go in differently with the kx65 stem). Go with pax if nothing else but for the support and knowledge.

if thats the case what benifit if any of buying the aftermarket triples if all is need to put on the kx65 front end is a bearing kit.




raises the bar height, you can adjust the bar position, probably more durable than stock clamps [they are made for kids]...

the aftermarket clamps are going to be a lot more comfortable, and easier to ride aggressive with, since it doesn't feel like you're going to tip over when standing up! haha
