Any 30mm Offset Triple Clamps Bolt Right on Stock Front End?

Just like the title says...

Anyone know of a set of nice looking triple clamps with 30mm offset that bolt right onto a stock Superhawk front end (in place of the stock 35mm offset triple clamps)?

Thanks!
James

I see this has been discussed before, though never fully figured out:

what are the specs on the F3 front end? Mind you, I recall a thread (by Superbling?) stating that the lower triple was a weak point and flexed a lot on said bike....

Lower triple is a common problem on Hondas. Would be good to get a run of strong alloy ones made to help the stock forks.

A fork brace usually fixes the problem.

I was hoping for a cheap triple clamp swap from the salvage yard

I've never heard that one before. The OEM lower clamps are fine, just heavy.

I can see where they are coming from on wanting a heavier duty clamp... Much like the sportier bikes have at least a two bolt lower clamp...

Obviously it's not mandatory, just one more way to reduce flex though.

I actually wonder whether a larger two bolt lower triple clamp would negate the need for a fork brace? Two birds with one stone...
