Thank you canuman, I got some pictures of the mounts. It seems the only thing I lack are these little $5 brackets that mount under the fork caps. I'm going ahead and ordering a fork seal rebuild kit, some stock caps (I have some weird brass ones with tubes connecting them and a quick fill nipple and pressure gauge) and new gators. So after that's all rebuild I'll throw the brackets on and have a very nicely rebuild front suspension and fairing
Oh does anyone have a spare tool for the stock fork caps (the two little button dots) removal?

The flat chromed metal mounts (basically triangular shape, but with round ends) mount under the upper fork nuts. Recomended torque for re-attachment 87 ft/lb. There is a slot at the large end to clear the 8mm bolts in the upper triple. You will need to remove your steering damper knob and bars to gain access.

I tried to take a pic, but with all the surrounding stuff, it is unclear with the fairing mounted.
