High rise front mudguard question

I'm fitting a high rise front mudguard & wondered how others had fabricated fixings?

I am prepared to drill & tap the lower triple clamp if that is the only secure option.

I put 4 holes in the top of the plastic fender. Then used zipties over the top of the lower triple clamp to secure it. I also put a big hole in the middle to still be able to use my triple tree stand.

These are not my pics, but belong to "Cuff" on here who helped me.
Looking up from the underside of the fender at the locations of the holes and the zipties

Looking at the triple tree and zips going over it.

You cant see the zipties unless you are looking for them.


I used black zipties, and its hidden even more.

HAWKSHOT99 Thanks for providing a 1st class service (photos as well ). I'm pretty sure Cuff's fender is the same as mine, can't quite tell if your's is.

Like yourself I'll be drilling a hole to take the triple tree stand but I hadn't considered using zip-ties to hold the fender in place. The bonus is that it's now a 15 min job

Thanks again for the advice.

Both Cuff and I have the Acrebis Super Moto fender.

I was thinking of going to black ones Hawk but the quik-cuffs I stole from work haven't moved yet. They were supposed to be temporary but a couple of years down the road they're more than likely staying on.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.
