Sorry to hear that happened on a ride.

Honestly I'm not sure how much a bracket is going to help. I think if you thin the material out too much, it will fail no matter what.
The new intake wasnt ported, I just put it on. It was a spare i had. To bad I didnt have it with me on my ride, but ill wait till I find a better chrome one before attemting to port again.
