Does anyone know of a bracket that we can mount on the Versys to allow a dirt bike front fender (see below)? I thought the bottom tripe was drilled and tapped on the bottom but its not. A thin fork brace type mount would work (Speedy you reading this?) that was drilled and tapped.
Take a look at the front fender on the '09 Motard 250 Kawasaki .It's black so it goes with any color and it's for a 17'' wheel so the proportion is right . I'm thinkin' about putting that on my Green V.
Thats a decent looking one for sure. I have found several I would like to check out but the issue we have is the bottom of our tripleclamps are not drilled and tapped for the bolts that hold the fenders on like on a dirt bike.
Looks like yes. I had the same issue with my V-strom and replaced the front lines with a braided-steel kit that uses two separate lines from the master cylinder, one to each side, eliminating the cross-over tube.

Drill 'em and tap 'em. They are only cast aluminum, so a few minutes with a hand drill and a tap would make quick work. Or scrap the tap all together and drill clearance holes for a nice stainless steel button head hex bolt. Use a couple of nylon locking nuts to hold everything tight and fender washers to distribute the load.
