Looking at switching over to aftermarket fork ears and bucket but wanted to retain the factory gators.

It appears the factory fork ears retain these in place at that top.

Has anyone gone this route before and if so what did you use to retain the top mount of the gators?

I'm no help on retaining the gators, but be careful when you tighten down those fork ears. If you over tighten them, they WILL crack. Ask me how I know........

I haven't seen these before, but figured it would only be a matter of time. They look fine, but a set screw to hold them in place seems a little hack job to me. I've been planning on casting something like this but with a slot like the factory ears. You'd thread the forks through and bobs yer uncle. I thought I saw once where dime city cycle had a some designed specifically for Hondas like the above eBay item. I've also thought about cutting the bottoms off some rotted ears but that's usually where they're rotted and I can't bring myself to cut up something that could be fixed.
