Any aftermarket triple clamps for '13 F800GS?

I have been looking around at all major manufacturers, but can't seem to find an aftermarket adjustable triple clamp for the 2013 model. Does anyone know if there are any options for the bike? The one below is for the F800GS but it isn't compatible with MY2013.

Thanks, I checked with them. Their existing model is not compatible with the 2013. They plan on producing them after they receive orders and the turn around time is couple of weeks.

Really???....

I am sure they bore the triple clamp to suit whatever fork you want to put in there. Snowy had some done to fit RMZ forks, and I was talking to them about fitting 48mm ktm forks.

Also....I would have to measure it, but when I pulled the forks out of my 2013f800, I was pretty sure that even though they are now a 43mm fork, that the top and bottom ends of the outer fork tube were larger (back out to 45mm), presumably to fit in the pre 2013 triple clamp. I will measure tonight.

Right, they do bore the triple for any size fork tubes. They told me their existing F800GS design is for 54mm fork tubes and after they receive an order for 2013 F800GS, they would take measurements at the BMW dealer to bore the triple accordingly. I may have bought it, but unfortunately I need a replacement triple this week (to fix my broken stock triple), which means I'll have to get a new stock one from BMW.
