So if possible, can you please post some more pics and/or dimensions on that rear fender support/grab bar? i'm losing hope that i'll ever find one, and am just going to build it.

Nice! Did you get them from parts-traders on eBay? That guy has all sorts of good stuff, I just got another set of old Acerbis handguards from him... what are you using those purple fork guards on?
