There's more involved than just the light and the fender. There's an internal support system as well, not to mention sorting it electrically. There are people that have done it. Not a cheap process, but possible. You'll need to source the bits for the support system and get creative with extending the headlight wiring down to the fender.

You'll also want to get creative with the lights themselves. The electrical system cannot handle the standard bulbs for both the GTS headlight and the GTV headlight at the same time. The folks who mount both lights usually switch one or both of the bulbs to something with less draw on the system.

It can be done, but it's a whole lot of work.
MV member Slowmike added a GTV headlight to his GT. There's a picture and a list of parts in this thread: Midnight Blue GTV fender and headlamp??. Note that he listed lots of other parts used elsewhere on the bike as well. Might want to get in touch with him if you want to narrow it down to just what you'd need to set up the fender and light.
