Just finished my high fender bracket and install. Super excited!
So made up a template with cardboard and re drew it in adobe illustrator. The circle was intended to be a drain hole but I decided to wait until later to decide where to put it if it proves to be needed. Printed it out and spray adhesived it to a L channel of aluminum I ordered from aircraft spruce. The best place I found to order fabricating materials in Canada.
I cut it out with band saw, files, belt sander and steel wool. The paper can be difficult to remove even with a heat gun and varsol. I used lepage general purpose and generally it will heat release with a heat gun. You'll want to make sure not to overheat your piece when cutting or the template can shift.
I neglected to leave enough room for the bolts so I had to get creative with countersinking them which is fine since it allows more wheel clearance. I also found I needed to make spacers to get the bolted area clear of the forks. I also needed 1/2" longer bolts. The fender I ordered from fortnine.ca
And the end result..love'n it.
Now I've been told welcome to owning a dirtbike. lol
Considering painting the bracket dark metallic grey like the rear plastics/gas tank and have to update my Winona's make over thread with her latest look.
And if you think the front of your engine looks dirty now...just wait.
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Aircraft spruce is a great place .... locall try metals r us in burnside for material .... they have "off cuts" racks of material out back that you can search through.
I've seen many an aircraft part made by "profesionals" that aren't as nice as your bracket. Nice finish work.
Lyterx, the top profile would need a little tweaking in order to match the OEM rectangular headlight, cowling and retaining bolt, etc. Very doable if artist author wants to share her intellectual property Nice offer, a great way to take TrailWoman's good work further.
