As for the bracket, so this thread stays on task, I just can't imagine it transferring enough heat, or any for that matter. I'll have to test it on my next ride.
Koko, they also sent a heat shield that goes in between the gas tank and the frame to prevent it from heating the tank up.
Obviously, the extra support was added to prevent any twisting and flopping around. They also sent foil insulation tape that goes on the back side of the rear fender to prevent heat issues as well. It seems to me like they did a very good job when they built it and thought of everything that was needed for the install.
