Ohlins fork fender compatibility, please help.

I have recently purchased ohlins fg322 forks with original radial caliper brackets. They have an integral single mounting point for the leading edge of the fender but nothing for the rear leg. There is no obvious fixing point for a bracket either. I'm intending on running the hrc copy front fender from tyga which means I have to drill the fender for bracket fitting.

So the question to answer is, where do I get brackets and where do I bloody fix them to on the forks?. Any suggestions/answers gratefully received.

The original caliper brackets were axial, not radial.

The axial brackets had rear fender mounts. Some people here can comment wrt the radial brackets.

Note that people have added different radial brackets as well to the fg322, such as cbr1000. So one needs to determine which brackets you have.

As I thought, if they are radial brackets for the fg322 (RC51) they did come with a rear fender mount.

Seen here.

Ohlins may still make the fender mount, which obviously can ordered from an ohlins dealer. Otherwise it is custom. Sbkdrew from that thread may be able to help.
