The 2018 fender is the mounting pattern that the original poster of this thread adapted and is what TCMB371 is planning an creating an adapter for.

Following MattB’s lead I did the 2016-2018 KTM/Husky fender and number plate retrofit. I essentially did what Matt did except I made some offset fender bushings for the bottom mounting holes and drilled/tapped new holes in the lower triple clamp.

The offset bushings (3/32” off center) are necessary to bring the holes in close enough as there is not enough material in the stock Alta triple clamp to mount the fender using the stock KTM spacing.

Then of course the easy part are the two forward fender bolts (.800” up from bottom edge to hole c/l, 1.556” apart center to center).

The KTM/Husky front number plates the mount right up to the unused center tapped boss in the upper clamp. A 1/4-28 bolt will work in that hole.

This configuration has the advantage of eliminating the Alta fender brace and brake line loop. Plus for the enduro guys you can now mount a KTM light cleanly. And for the same cost as a replacement Alta fender brace (when they were available), you can have a much more rigid front fender and number plate with integrated brake line guide. Plus it’s an easily 100% reversible modification.

I made a simple bracket out of 3/16" aluminum angle and it seems very solid. You can see it in my pictures in the bikes for sale "'17MX turned EX" thread.
