I bought a 2005 WR450 that had the headlight ziptied to the forks.
It looks like from the parts fiche that there is a mounting brakcet that is attached to the triple clamp, at least on one side.

Can someone post up a picture of what I'm looking for?
I bought a new headlight shroud and it's pretty obvious something is missing.
Is there a bracket for each side or just one?

Thanks in advance

There should be a bracket on each side using the 2 upper fork pinch bolts to bolt down and hold bracket. The bracket on right also is the ignition mount. The left bracket has the front brake line guide/holder. Each bracket has a threaded nut for the bolt to hold the headlight shell on.

that explains why th eparts fiche doesnt show the right side, it's under the 'electrical' breakdown, thanks!
