Yeah, same here!

Does anyone have a template for the bracket?
I'm a bit of a "do it yourself'er" and would like to fab up my own bracket.

EZ, I have been rooting around for a bracket that didn't cost an arm and a leg, and that would fit in the cowl area. I stumbled across a post here somewhere, and did some digging........there is a bracket that I liked that sounded reasonable, but was only offered in Europe. I contacted the US distributor for those products and they were nice enough to add it to their web page. I have one ordered as a part of their next shipment, but don't have it as yet......I thought I'd put it up here for your consideration.

Will it fit the 2010 990 ADV? How long will it be before they ship? Thanks!

Thanks but I'm looking to keep the stock cowl.
I'm looking for something like this one.

Just installed these last night on my 990. Fit great, clearance is good and they look strong enough.

Don't know that it won't fit, you could double check with them......and they said "a few weeks" so I'd bet that if you wanted one now, it would come on the same order as mine will. I am expecting it in May sometime.

I don't have a template but depending how much you can diy, here's what I did using 3/16" aluminum:


I used cardboard to get the basic dimensions. From there, I transfered it to the alum plate then drilled the holes.

That's a nice job.
...now be a friend and pull that off, lay it on some paper and trace me out a pattern.

I'm not sure but I think my 2007 and your 2011 might have some differences.

Maoule, that looks awesome. Nice work.

I like to make my own parts whenever I can but I have to say the BDCW bracket for the high fender is worth the money. It's well made, fits great and light. I got a package deal over christmas for a set of lights and the bracket, I couldn't be happier with it.

Only issue I had is that was that my turning radius is so high that it touched the side fairings a bit, nothing a little negotiating with a ball peen hammer couldn't fix.

my $0.02

Thanks...I only make my own parts when inspired and this winter made for a lot of inspiration.
My lights also rub on the inner fairing but it's flexible enough not to cause any trouble. Luckily, the Cyclops brackets have a good bit of adjustability so that I could keep them from contacting the outer fairing.

Thanks that install looks great, How do you like the lights?
I would gladly have something like that laser cut, if guys don't want to do it themselves.
