Triple clamps with adjustable off set

To be able to exit corners with more gas, it´s been recommended to me to change the offset from standard 36 mm to 30 mm (distance from fork stem center  to fork legs center). The price to pay is less stability when braking.

The IMA kit I bought from is adjustable from 25 mm to 31, but if you go below 28 mm the oil cooler and radiator must be relocated. I followed advice from experienced people and started with 30 mm offset. Great build quality and high attention to detail from IMA. A pleasure to work with
I replaced the ball bearings with more durable tapered roller bearings, which Ducati used to have (748, 916, 998), but seems to be changed on more recent bikes (cost reasons?)
