Highway Dirtbikes Top Clamp

Highway Dirtbikes Top Clamp

Paul from Highway Dirtbikes sent me this sneak peak photo of my top clamp.  He machined the clamp to fit a rocker switch I sent out to him, looks like it fits perfect!  Once I receive this top clamp, along with the bottom clamp and ProTaper EVO bars, I’ll be posting an installation/review post of my setup.

    Looks good. How did you decide on the ProTaper EVOs? I have bent my stock bars quite nicely and am baffled by the choice of replacement bars.

      Hey Chris.. I’ve had ProTaper’s on another bike of mine and really like them. Also got to get up close to a set of the Henry/Reed bend on another WR and like the feel. The bars are great, I highly recommend them, but I would make sure you take a look at the different bends offered. Let me know what you go with!

    I just picked up an 04 DRZ400E the Saturday after Thanksgiving and have been e-mailing and talking with Paul about getting some new clamp, bars etc. I was wondering where your rocker switch came from? I am looking to do the same (for heated grips) on my bike. I told Paul I was barrowing your idea for the rocker switch, and power outlet. Also you seem very knowledgable about electrical things, so what are your thoughts about hot rodding a garage door opener to work off a HDB momentary switch mounted in the top clamp? Please let me know about that switch, and nice work on the install videos, thank you.

      Hey Nick.. Paul will definitely hook you up. He did a great job on my top clamp and since then many other’s have installed the same setup. So far, a year later it’s still works great. HDB setup and rocker switch.

      You can pick up the switch from Dual-Star. My rocker switch came with the Symtec grip heaters I purchased from casporttouring.com.

      Good luck on the install! I’ll have to look into the garage door install. I have an extra one laying around here so maybe I can rig it up… and let you know! Sounds like a good winter project .. 🙂

    Basher, just picked up a 2017 350 EXC-F to replace my wr250r ( sound familiar ). I am a huge fan of HDB and I am interested in them for the 3-fiddy. I have two questions for you. Are you able to see the speedo / trip computer with this top clamp or do you need to buy the mount for the speedo from HDB? Also, I’m assuming you’ve mounted the handguards to the top clamp. Did you have to relocated the key switch?

    Some pics of your new 3-fiddy cockpit would be awesome.

      What up Rodney! Yea sounds super familiar haha! Here’s a look at the pics of the cockpit on the 3-fiddy. https://goo.gl/6abYM8 I’m running the stock top clamp right now.. going to be adding my GPS stabilizer soon and will use that top clamp.

      The HDB stuff is awesome, Paul never lets you down, his stuff is great. I’m actually removing the key switch, ordered the eliminator already, because it’s right in the way of the handguards. I got the Cycra CRM’s and they have to be higher than I like, so I got different Cycra mounts for them now that I’m removing the key I can move them down. I’m going to make a post of some of things I’ve ran into, maybe get some good feedback from others as with this new bike things are different and yet to be known!

      Let me know how your build goes!!

    Thank Basher. I have the HDB setup on the wr250r and I, too, love them. I want to do a full HDB setup on the new 3-fiddy. I do like the new CRM’s, they are sharp looking. I really love the HDB flip-out mirrors.

    Where did you get your key-removal kit?

    I can’t wait to see your build post.

    By the way, are you still working in the graphic design field? If so, I might have some work for you. Let me know and we’ll talk.
