I've been posting about this exact issue for quite awile. I really want to mount my Pro Rally's to my triple clamp.
Cyrca and Yamaha among others make mounts but I'm unsure which if any work. If anyone has more info PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
I did found out today Yamaha doesn't have these mounts available yet.
I've called Mike from Flatland Racing about possibly making some mounts, I was told he'd look into it.
If any of you guys, or your friends, have experience designing...
Remmember the existing mounts don't allow you to pick which angle you want your guards to sit.

I just ran a longer fastener and attached the inner portion of the hand gaurd to the top triple clamp bolt.
No mount and super clean...

I have Pro Bends mounted on Twinwalls and the clamp mounts solved a few problems at the same time. Pro Taper-sized mounts were still too small, and on my old 7/8” bars the guard and brake line interfered w/ ea. other (I like my levers WAY down for some reason). The clamp mounts will obviously work regardless of bar size and there is more space for the brake line.
I’m sure the clamp mounts will work with all normal bark busters like EE, Fredette, Moose etc. and I’ve had them on the stock Yamaha and Scott’s top triple clamps.
I used to have a set of Rally Pro guards, which I broke, and I can’t remember exactly where the inner mount was placed. I think if they are as long as ordinary bark busters the clamp mount will work, but they may be too short.
They look like they MAY work. Its too bad that these things (either Cycra or GYT-R), like everything else, are so *&%@# expensive or it would be easier to stomach buying a set to try them out.

I posted another question, asking whether or not the mount allowed the guards to hang low. I, like many people ride with my levers low and am concered about coverage.

I run the frt brk cbl behind the light cowl with a guide I fabbed up out of delrin.

I too have the Acerbis Rally Pro hand guards. My problem is the guide for the front brake cable mounts to the top clamp getting in the way of the guard, so I can't cut my bars down. The top clamp mounts look like a good idea but will they work with Acerbis and how do you run your brake line?
Or I just run the yz plate for racing...

You said that they are adjustable. Are you able to adjust the angle at which the guards hang? Can you explain?

The woods style plastic shields are large and provide good coverage. If you have aluminium wrap-around guards, you should order these GYT-R brackets and give them a look. If they don't fit, Yamaha will take them back. Good Luck
