Im a little embarrassed, I cheated making the mount. I used the original mount and made a spacer out of Epoxy Putty. I got a used Monster fender off E-Bay for $40, and cut off the mounts. It was simple cutting the plastic. I formed the putty into balls and pushed the fender onto the mounts with the putty on the bolt holes between the fender and the mount. Once the putty dried I drilled the holes. Take special care getting the fender strait when you drill it. I had to use longer screws. Had fear that it would go flying off at hi speed, but I had the bike at top speed and no vibration or movement.

Not embarrassing, downright ingenious. Do you have any idea what model Monster that's from? Thanks again.

Hello

I would advise you to check regularly that your mount resists to the weight and vibrations of this larger mudguard.
On the Classic, for which the mudguard is heavier than Icon or FT one, the mount gets quite quickly damaged due to the vibrations of the whole set.

I had to add a third mounting point to definitively stop the mudguard movements.

I would second the comment from vincelp. I put a larger fender on my Classic and the mount also broke. The stock mount is barely adequate.

Thanks for the details Walter, and the warnings Vince and C. I have a big aluminum fender sitting on the shelf, figure I have to heft up the mounts before I can even think about using it.
