Master Cylinder clearance

Just fitting a OBP pedal box to my Tiger and was after opinions.

I've got the box as far to left as possible as I need space around my throttle.

Currently looks like this, enough space? Thoughts?

That looks a bit close to me.
The engine and gearbox will move a bit ( mine would hit for sure) how stiff are your mounts?
Do YOU think there's enough room?

One question.
Is Jubilee clip (Hose Clamp) acceptable for brake use?
I know it´s your clutch cylinder shown, but how are you going to go on your brakes?

Beware of what you wish.. for it may come true....

I've already bought all M10x1 braided hoses for the brakes (and clutch actually, just not yet fitted as Ii'm waiting for the new MC to arrive.)

As regards to the clearance, I've run with similar amounts in a FWD 205 Mi16 with no issues , it was common them to grind a small flat onto the back of the MC to clear.

I just wondered if anyone had experience of similar and if it was and issue for them / how much clearance the average kit has.

Looks OKish to me, most of the engine movement will be at the top as it rocks over under acceleration? In any case, it's the clutch that's at risk, your brakes are going to be safe so I think probably OK.

I might try to find an angled fitting to connect to the reservoir though, also I'd definitely grind a bit off the flange to increase clearance, if possible.
