I’m wondering if any of you guys would know what triple clamps & steering stem would be compatible with the 1997 KX250 stock forks? I was told that possibly ‘06 kx450f clamps would fit, but was unsure about the stem length? What are my options?

The 06 KX450f had 48 mm Kayabas, so the clamps won't fit. In any case, the KX 250 stem needs to be used with any KXF clamp as the head tube is shorter on the KX.
What are you trying to accomplish?

Fro's dad will set you up with anything you want. Custom clamps at a reasonable price. He might already have some in stock seeing as Fro rode Kawi's.

Worth a call/email atleast.

Yep... only $650 for my '99. You can get a '97 on eBay for $25.

Not true. Four stroke triples bolt right up. You just have to modify your steering stop. I have a set of 06 triples on my 125.....

I stand corrected... 99 has the larger dia upper, not the 97. Thank you.

I have 07 clamps on mine and the 99 KYB 46 doesn't fit.

What forks are you running on your setup? 99’s were one of my favorites.

You can see what I did here.

My friend is currently bolting an ‘06 front end on a ‘96 too. Not sure what he has had to do.

I'm running a set of 2017 KYB sss that were new take-offs from a YZ250F, also a new take-off Showa 50mm shock from a 2015 KX250F.
