I sounds like the aftermarket plastic you bought is for the old bike.

My solution will be to weld up a couple of little extensions complete with welded nut on one end and a hole on the other to bolt to the stock radiator hole and then bend them to the appropriate angle. Should be simple and unobtrusive.

I was very impressed with the quality as well as the price

The 2K and newer had the different mounts.
I agree as previously mentioned: You must have the wrong year shrouds.
I mounted up some ACERBIS and they line up quite fine.
As an FYI, I am running aluminum radiator guards. The ACERBIS, as well as the OEM shrouds, HAD to have the ribs on the inside of the guards trimmed to get the fit right.

anyways, to solve this prob, my dad and i made a bracket out of a piece of aluminum. it's no more than a rectangle of aluminum cut from the kind like you buy @ hardwear stores. it's like 1" tall by about 2 1/2-3"long, and we put a slight "L" bend in it by the old mount to make it reach out to where the new mount needs to be. i have devol radiator guards, so we just mounted it directly to that. feel better with the shroud mounted to the guard rather than rad anyways... reduces chances of rad damage ($ $) in the event of a crash. now nothing puts pressure on the rad in a crash. a drill and a couple 10mm nuts and bolts secure the shroud.
for HS season, i went back to my old beat up stock shrouds with the stock mounting holes, and just ziptied them to the front of the devol rad guards (removed mounting brackets.)
hope it helped.

I made some offset brackets from aluminum that look good and work well. Just to add, what started this project is that I had to replce the left radiator $263.00 (ouch) due to a pile up crash. Stock radiator was natural aluminum
apperance, the Yamaha replacement was powercoated gloss black. Dealer said Yamaha changed the part # and that that's what I got. I ended up painting both to match (Hammerite Silver)

Other than a slightly tweaked radiator on the left side, they fit fine.
