A common question we receive on the 2006-2012 Yamaha FJR1300 is why did you design a replacement triple clamp.  It’s usually followed with “You did a riser for the earlier version, why not just keep it the same.”

Here is the detailed information from our engineer:
1st:  The stock triple clamp on the 2006-2012 has a horizontal mount for the handlebars.  So any riser that would be added onto the triple clamp would only make the handlebars taller, not closer to the rider.  (And really that’s what people want is the bars closer to them so they aren’t stretched over the tank.)  Also the handlebar mounting hardware complicates any riser design.

2nd:  The stock clamp is very wide front to back and this uses up cable and hydrualic line slack very quickly when the controls are raised and moved back.

3rd:  The stock triple clamp is rather thin sectioned and uses a single fork tube pinch bolt per side.  This is one of the reasons FJR’s have a buzz at cruise speed.

All three of these issues are addressed in the redesigned triple clamp (HRT076-2 or HRT076ES-2).

  • 1/2″ taller than stock
  • 1 1/4″ to 1 3/4 ” rearward (towards rider) with the option of 2 handlebar mounting locations.
  • Reduced vibrations
  • Improved wrist angles

If you want additional height, you can also add our Optional Accessory Risers which increase the height to 1 1/4″ taller than stock.  (HRTR01 only fits with the Heli Triple Clamp)

Safe Riding!
