The clamps are referred to in the aviation industry as Adel clamps - the aluminum ones are pretty durable, but have been known to fatigue through vibration and then crack. If they are steel you have no worries - but inspect them routinely, or after a fall, if they are alloy.

There is a similar thread about the new 250 going on at KTM Talk - the owner has installed lowering links and is looking for more modification possibilities. Note that you have to be logged in there to read any posts.

Thanks for the tip on the clamps John. These look to be steel but I'm not sure. I'll keep an eye on them. Also, I'll check out the KTM forum link. More information is always good!
