Toe,
Thanks. The previous owner did it (CRPNTR) and he may have posted if you search his threads. He custom made a metal bracket with four holes for the bolts that go thru the fender. The bracket sandwiches between the lower triple clamp and the new fender. I believe other guys have posted how to install high mount front fenders. Technically, you could buy an Acerbis Supermoto fender, buy four bolts to fit the holes, drill four holes in the lower triple in the exact pattern of the fender holes, and fasten. Maybe use washers (nylon or rubber maybe) when fastening. Trim the bottom rear (louvered end) of the fender with snips to clear the radiator at full lock. I am not certain if the previous owner could have skipped making the bracket? Or if the fender will not quite reach the lower triple due to clearance, In that case such a bracket may be needed afterall? Hope that helps.
