No worries Boris, I probably don't really need one for the SB6 anyway as my stock clamp is still in good nic.

And I'll see what I can do with the Chinese bracket for the DB4

Are they the plastic lined ones similar to the stock one?

Plastic lined 52mm dia stainless. Like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262483598137?_sp=p2488212.m41214.l9765&_trkparms=itemid%3A262483598137

Hopefully the diameter will be ok or I'll be able to persuade it to fit. I bought 2 with a thought that they'll be narrow enough to sit side by side.

I went from looking fork clamps but then wonderred about p-clips, i saw some large ones used on a building site.
The 52mm is stainless theres a 53mm but its steel.

I tried to put the fairing back on with bracket on the wrong way and couldnt get it to join at the bottom. Just shows how small the tollerances are
