Got an 06-07 R6 and need upper and lower triple tree. Was told by my sources that 08+ is a direct replacement and a better replacement and offset is unchanged from 06-07 model to 08+ model. I read review from motorcycle-USA saying offset in lower triple went from 35mm in 07 to 40mm in 08.

My question is how is 08+ lower triple different and "better" than 07, can I use my 07 upper on an 08+ lower, is the offset 35mm or 40mm in 08. If so, how will a 5mm offset change the suspension and handling?

The difference is that the 08+ lower triple grabs the forks higher. That let's the bottom of the forks flex a little better.
