Fits perfect, you just replace the black plastic thing that holds the fender and the headlight shell on the newer Bergs, and replace it with:

This uses the same hole and hardware in the front of the fender, and in the rear gets sandwiched between the lower triple and this lower HDB bracket:
I used a longer bolt to get the same thread engagement after the added thickness, M6x25mm with a washer under the head worked nicely. If you don't have those bolts at home and want to avoid a trip to the hardware store, order two of these along with the brace:
