I don't think they make the lindby bar that has the pointed edge at the top like the solid mounted ones are for your year but if they do I would advise to get the one with the rounded edge to it. I went through 4 lindby bars on my bike. One I went down going 45 mph and hit the curb and went partially up a sidewalk and had no damage to the bike other than the lindby bar and my mirror, grip end and the end of my clutch lever and rear turn signal. I replaced it with another one but the next 3 kept breaking at the top corner wear the weld is and then I had a big tuning fork on my bike as I rode. The first one did not break from the accident it just got all scratched up and slightly bent.
I give credit to the company though. They warranteed the bar all 3 times paying for shipping both ways. They do stand behind there product. The last bar they sent me they custom made for me after I recommended putting a slug inside the tube wear the corners met and welding them together then putting the bar over the slug and welding the bar together to reinforce the corner. I can't say how it worked though because I never used it. I bought a Harley brand and never looked back. I still have the lindby brand new in the box in my attic.
