You may want to buy some universal clamp on ones or pull the forks for factory mounts. Will need blinker mounts also.
That's kind of what I was thinking. I'm pulling the forks anyway so I can put new seals in.

So long as the forks are off, as if you wanted more things to do, it would be easy to replace timing belts. Just sayin'

I don't trust myself that much. I've got a local shop that will be doing that when it's at that point.

He's right Tom. It ain't rocket science. Just take pictures as you disassemble it.

Good luck with what ever you decide.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.
