The brackets on ebay listed above aren't Drifter brackets, they must be off some other VN800.

As far as I remember, the Drifter 800 is the only Kawa VN that uses those brackets. And they are exactly what the ad said.
But I'm just sayin', since that they're sold...

The bracket used on the Drifter is a different shape it has two stiffening fillet-folds at the base rather than a bulge. The drifter brackets have a threaded boss at the apex, not a wide angled slot.

The ebay listing says that they fit different models of VN800, suppliers often assume that if it fits one model it will fit all, but it just isn't the case.
