Hello All,

Torque Wrench
Rubber mallet

Piece of round or flat wood. or (brute strength lol)


You will need a few things.

Remove the battery cover and ignition cover


Now to remove the triple clamp bolts
On the brake lever side you will need to loosen this bolt because the reservoir is blocking access.




Clutch lever side has just enough room



Then Remove the last bolt
Thanks from shigeru

Piece of wood or brute strength?
I couldn't budge it so I opted for a round piece of wood. I placed it under the triple and gave it a few taps on each side until it was free.




Now use the special tool remove the steering stem nut
P.S. why is there so much grease lol clean the area that doesn't need it.


Replace with your shiny need Ducabike Stem Nut torque to spec
Thanks from shigeru

Now on to install the top clamp. The clipons have a notch.


This tab goes in the notch.


Once you get it on a few taps with a rubber mallet to seat it. Torque bolts to spec.
Thanks from Pard and shigeru

What’s the purpose of installing half a triple clamp?

I dont think there would be much of a rigidity difference so no performance gain mainly cosmetic.
I like the way it looks
