Thanks

I'd agree except I got told two different times from technical touch that they do fit .

Then another guy who was interested in them called and they told them no they are different .

Ride engineering clamps are the same . So.. that's why I came on here and checked

When i bought my clamps from Rick at KYB in November. I asked him the same question and he told me yes. The 2mm difference in the lower tubes was achieved by using thinner upper tubes. So the clamps will work. The steering stabilizer mount is still there, 20mm & 22mm are your offset options.
I just got my x-trig preload adjuster off backorder as well.

Talked to Jeff today at ride engineering . Clamps are the same . uppers are still the same clamping surface and diameter .
