on this 1971 A65 triple clamp I am using the shims that accommodate 7/8" bars. I have torqued the clamp bolts down so hard I'm afraid they will snap, yet with a little pressure the bars still rotate. Is there any tips for resolving this?

Have they been cut down? perhaps converted to solid mounting without the cones, spacers, rubbers and cups?
I know people who have done this, claiming they dont like the spongy feel. Personally, having suffered the vibration of missmounted rubbers for years, I was stoked when I got them right, its very fatiguing when they vibrate,, sup to you, I reccomend getting new Pclamps if you like a smooth ride.
