The new SuperClamp
For the higher-performance Superduke rider in you

Made from 7075 T6 aluminum, the adjustable offset Superclamp kit for the 1290 Superduke is not only stiffer than both the OEM and Power Parts tripleclamps, giving you better feel and control, but it offers you something never before available on 1290 Superdukes...

The Superclamp adds the very special ability to increase or decrease your offset, which affects trail - the single most impactful element of your motorcycle's "feel". You can now have the ability to alter your Superduke's flick-ability, increase your confidence up front, affect your turning radius, your roll speed, and achieve a more "neutral" feel in your steering as you lean through turns - all without affecting any other aspect of your motorcycle's setup.  

Up until now the only way to effect trail on any generation 1290 Superduke was to alter ride height - front or rear.  And that's been ok, because by using a Sport Link or a height adjustable shock and a Superlink to gain rear ride height, you also create more swingarm angle.  And Gen3 Superdukes love more swingarm angle - it helps drives and creates more anti-squat.   But how high can you go?   How long are your legs?  Maybe you want even less trail than your Sport Link creates, but you like your ride height where it is.  Maybe you are tracking your SDR and you've maxed out your Superlink and height adjustable shock - which still only gets you to 102.5mm trail...

Enter, your Superduke's new best friend.  The Superclamp!

Now it is possible for you to achieve an impressive range of trail settings by using the Superclamp alone.   Your Superduke setup can remain exactly where it was when it came off the showroom floor - same rear ride height, same gearing, same eccentric position and fork heights - and you can have up to 3mm more trail, or 7mm less trail than stock.   That's 111mm to 101mm of trail, in 1mm increments, all now possible with the Superclamp alone.

The Superclamp comes in KTM orange anodized, or black anodized.   Other colors are possible - email to discuss.

What comes in the box?

  • Upper triple clamp
  • Lower triple clamp
  • Specially designed steering stem that allows upper and lower insert removal without dismantling the entire front end of the motorcycle.
  • Inserts providing 5 different positions relative to stock (in mm): -2, 0 (stock), +1, +2, or +4 (keep in mind: a positive offset reduces trail, while a negative offset increases trail)
  • Steering damper mount
  • Adjustable Steering Stops
  • Timken Tapered Roller bearings w/ new upper and lower grease seals
  • All necessary triple clamp bolts in 316 stainless steel (OEM bolts still used for brake lines and headlight mounts)

By optimizing the design, we're also able to offer an offset expansion pack with additional positions (again relative to stock, in mm): -3, -1, +3, +5, +6, and +7 (again keep in mind: a positive offset reduces trail, while a negative offset increases trail).

The Superclamp retains all threaded mounting holes for OEM headlight, brake line mounts, steering damper mount, etc. A third handlebar mount has been added for maximum flexibility in bar position relative to steering stem.  For example even while using the most aggressive offset insert available (+7) you can still achieve the same bar to steering stem relationship that you had with your OEM triple clamp.  The Superclamp is appropriate for street applications, track day applications, and of course for racing.

As with all adjustable offset triple clamp kits, due to the wide range of adjustability which puts the rear of the top triple clamp in 11 different locations - only one of which is OEM - we lose the "key-lock" feature.

 

 

Special thanks to David LaBree for all of his help creating the design and technical drawings for the Superclamp. David is one solid dude and a great member of our motorcycling, track day and racing community. David also sells a clutch slave solution for LC8 motors that works brilliantly. No more having to bleed your clutch master repeatedly to keep it working properly. It just works - like clutch slaves are meant to: KTM LC8 Clutch Slave

Eric has been a pleasure to work with.

Eric’s contribution to the Superduke community is unmatched. I know I’m reviewing a product but I think failing to mention the effort and commitment to providing solutions and insight to a growing group of enthusiasts would be a diservice to the Superduked brand. The product is amazing the craftsmanship is unrivaled and the proof comes from a man that puts his life on the line testing his designs. 11 out of 10 stars.

Functional *and* beautiful!

I have several motorcycles and like to spend time working on them to improve their handling and get them suited specifically to my weight and riding style. This is by far my favorite modification of any bike I own.

The Superclamp feels great just out of the box even before you put it on the bike. You can definitely feel the solidity and precision compared to other triple clamp options.

Install is pretty straightforward and luckily there isn't a lot of stuff that needs to be removed on the Super Duke to swap out the stock clamp for Superclamp. I did some reading of the service manual ahead of time and spent a bit of time staring at the bike before jumping in and there weren't any major surprises. Just take your time.

The result is a motorcycle that wants to turn now. I have the +2 spacer paired with a 15mm Sportlink and the improvement in the steering response is easily noticeable even at street speeds. The +7 spacer would probably be insane haha. I can't wait to take my setup to the track this summer and try this out. GoGo is a great guy and answered any questions I had along the way.
