    Transalp

  6. If you want a high front mudguard a CRF125 one is a good fit

    Transalp
    The CRF raised mudguard has 4 bolt holes, 2 of which line up perfectly with holes in the underside of the transalp bottom yoke. You still have to figure out what to do with the other 2 holes though, but you're halfway there
