Need to meet with a DL1000 owner in Michigan to review / compare triple clamps

As we all know the DL1000 gets a top triple clamp with removable handlebar clamps. The DL650, for some reason, does not. I have been wondering if the top triple clamp from a 1000 would bolt on to a 650 and it is time for experimenting.

If the top clamp fits, this opens up a wealth of handlebar options for us 650 owners since we now could run 1.125" bars & bar clamps instead of being held captive by the 0.875" bars. Of course bar risers which also convert to 1.125" clamps are an option, but a crappy option.

I'd be willing to do the tryout in my garage as the prospective DL1000 owner enjoys beer and pizza, and I live in southeast Michigan near the Palace.

If there are willing DL1000 owners, please post. I will detail, photograph, and post the results.

Take a look here:

They have risers that adapt from 7/8" clamp to a 1-1/8" bar. Might be cheaper/easier than changing out the whole triple.

Yep, seen those. I am trying to elimiate the spacer by going direct from the clamp to the bar. Can also use rubber isolated clamps this way too. Thanks for the post / idea.
