Default Front Indicator Mod

I've just got a set of LED indicators for the front of my bike. there the micro style ones, and I need to completely remove the old stock ones and bracket... I want a new P-Clamp to fit these onto the forks, my question is - what size do I need and anyone know a good place to get one?

I've seen this:

P-Clamps | Lighting | Küryakyn

...Should do the trick, but still not sure which size, (if any) would fit!

I would think you would measure the diameter of your fork leg, to get the size. The p-clamps that you linked seem to small as they appear to only go up to 41mm or 1.614 inch. It looks like the two piece units go larger. Not sure what the diameter of the warrior fork leg is where the original signals went. Not at home to measure.

You can do a search (on forum) for brackets that were made at one time to mount them off the pinch bolts. I copied the design and made them from aluminum, pretty easy.

From Tomba's 'Popular Mods' thread:
Lights - Fork Mounts (54mm = #2275): http://www.kuryakyn.com/shopbybike.aspx?s=2275

I haven't used this clamp but I've read its a perfect fit, and unfortunately I also read someone inserted a cut rubber inner tube membrane under the clamp on their Warrior. I don't know which is correct but my guess has been the membrane was used to mount the clamp elsewhere on the fork (not where the stock signals mount).

I did Measure the forks around where the existing indicators are, so no, those Kuyakyn clamps are too small which is a shame.

I also thought of making my own bracket for the pinch bolts, seen that on a few other bikes, but with those links and tips you guys sent I should be able to get something no probs now, so thanks!!
