I finally got a batwing but when I got it home the brackets dont make sense. Anyone have a picture of the mounting? Which part is wrong?

Well crap. I guess I needed to do some more homework first. Does anyone have a picture of what the right bracket looks like?

I believe the light you have is rarer than the standard fender mounted Batwing you need. I wouldn't try modifying that one if I were you...

Thanks for the tip. I will have to try and find the right one now. A picture of the bottom side of the correct light would be great if anyone has one. Then I know what to look for.

You have the correct bracket already attached to the front fender of the bike. The ends of your bracket are bent down and need to be bent up. The light you purchased has the truss rod bracket. I would NOT remove the riveted bracket from this light. Even if you did this light does not have the dimpled sections on this base and will not work with your bracket.

Thank you for the help. Guess I will be selling this one and am back on the search for the right one.

Here are several pictures I took back in 2011. You can't really see the bracket but you can see how once installed, you hardly notice the bracket, it is well hidden.

Here is the bracket, as mentioned you already have it it just needs to be CAREFULLY bent back into this shape, I made the same mistake and bought a truss mount batwing and cant mount it to my fender, hopefully you can use this to reshape your bracket, those truss mount brackets can be drilled out and taken off and you can rivet the fender bracket back on to your light, it will still fit the bottom without having the dimples, but you will have to drill new holes, others have told me they done the same thing, but you risk damaging an expensive light, I am looking for another way to mount mine, hope this helps!
