The bracket does seem to be working as far as keeping vibrations of the carb/intake down. While testing the bike out today. I did a slight port on my spare intake, couldnt resist. While testing though i noticed the fuel filter didnt bubble up from vibrating and fuel flow stayed consistent in the filter. Bike ran alot better to, could i have stopped severe vibrations in the float bowl as well? The piece of metal I used came with the kit and I couldnt find a use for until now. I guess ill keep it that way.
