I bought the lightbar, but I couldn't find the mounting bracket for the VTX anywhere. I could barely find correct images much less dimensions. Therefore I fabricated it myself with a scrap piece of aluminum. For those interested, here it is.

Tools I used:
Angle grinder
Vice
Stationary belt sander
Drill Press

OH, FYI, the right most small hole was already in the scrap metal and is not necessary. Also I wasn't able to get a clean bend so the angle was forced in the vice until I was satisfied so cannot provide an exact angle. Also, lastly (hopefully) you're going to have to replace the OEM screws that hold the lamp as they are too short. I filled the excess exposed screw length between the bracket and stem sub-assy with a spacer for extra stability. Wiring-wise you'd be wise to have some posi-locks ready or some small bullet connectors because the lightbar wires have different connections than the bike so something will have to be snipped.
