    CHEAP high mount oem fender

    I've been trying to make my TW look less 1980s commuter, and more Scrambler. I'm not a fan of that pointy super moto fender, I don't think it matches the rest of the styling of the bike. I ran some zip ties under the mounting bracket on the oem fender, and wrapped them tight around the triple tree. I might eventually attach it with hose clamps for a tight hold. It does wiggle when you grab it, but looks sturdy in the wind and off road. I thought some of you guys would like to see what it looks like before trying it yourself(I know I do).

    That is pretty clever. Since eventually the zip-ties may fail you may eventually want to upgrade fastening system as you have already stated.
    In the meantime how about more zip ties between OEM fender bracket and lower triple clamp?

    How about some close up pics so others can see how you did this mod?
