clamps for standard heat shield

Piecing this sucker back together is killing my wallet....anyone have the bigger clamp and a smaller one at a reasonable price. The Kawasaki dealer is trying to rip me off and ebay doesn't have exactly what I am looking for. Thx

Most of us use a radiator clamp when the original breaks or parts are lost.

For the cost of a couple dollars I would use the hose clamps too... in fact I did, with great success. Mine have been on there for a couple of years. No Issues & it's a cheap fix!

What Harley does, is to weld a regular rad clamp to theirs. You can do similar, by drilling a hole, then pop rivetting the clamp to the inside.
Drag Specialties and V-Twin Mfg. both sell universals too.
