this may be a dumb question but the heat from the header doesnt mess with it at all? warm up the fluid too much and lose performance? I do like the mount and i have the same style. It is off my race (street) bike but a couple of brackets and i should be good to go.
ruinines, I have not any problem with mine, You can also install the mount to the forward down bar just forward of the front shock too. I just did not see that option at the time of installation. I have seen it mounted that way on another V since my install.
