you should be able to contact ohlins and they should have all the mounting hardware you need. I'd check there first.

with something like that I'd almost go to the manufacturer for ti to be 100% effective. Maybe you can get the specs from Ohlins. Only way to find out is ask, whats the worst thing they are going to say, no?

Im sure the mounting bracket wouldnt cost much at all from ohlins anyway, its just hardware. The dampers the expensive piece, the bracket couldnt be more than $20-30.

ALL mounting brackets for pretty much ALL dampeners are from $100-$140. Note to yourself bro.

what brackets do you have?
there are 2 of them on mounts to you triple tree and one mounts to the 2 screws at the top
of the fuel tank and is a beam that comes up that is the part that is mounted to the slide bar and would not be very hard to make.
this is kinda what it looks likeHelp!!! F4i Ohlins Mounting Bracket-mounts.jpg
The one on the triple tree now would be the hard one to make because it has a lock pin in it that sits in the grove just under your main nut in the triple tree.
My bike is at My brothers house right now so I can't get you any specs on it sorry.
