yes another light mounting question`

I want to change the light bar i made for my dl650, it mounted to the fork stabilizing bracket, but with the new lights i want it may contact the beak i put on under shock compression on a corner, i dont want to risk a crash.
Whats the difference between the sw motech and denali mounts?
Any other options?
fork mounts of some sort?
thanks

Price......I love my Motech mounts on my XT, looks and acts like a stock product.

why you don't install them at the points where the front fender is attached to the lower legs of forks? it is free BTW.

The Denali bracket is a bar that goes from end to end across the bike, the SW motech brackets mount independantly on each side. The sw motech version is a much more elegant solution that appears stock when installed in my opinion, that is what I bought.
