Fork width help

Help please lol, I can't narrow down the size of my 1999 6r forks. I'm trying to order a set of fork mounted headlight brackets but find varying widths mentioned. Any help would be appreciated cheers.

If you don't have calipers to measure the diameter.
You can measure the circumference with a string, then divide by PI (3.1412) to get the diameter.
