Gen2/Triple Clamp

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to: navigation, search

The triple clamp tree attaches the fork tubes to the frame via the steering head bearing.

The design and fitment changed from MY 2013-2014 to MY 2015+, when the forks changed from FastAce to Showa.

Upper Assembly
This sits atop the steering head, joining the forks at the top, and supports the handlebars, ignition switch, dash, and headlamp.
Lower Assembly
This inserts upward through the steering head tube, joining the forks below the tube, and supports the headlamp bracket and the high fender for DS/DSR/FX models.

The upper assembly and lower assembly join around/through the steering head.
