Was also thinking of cutting it out and making a bolt in crossmember over the top of the fuel pump.
i weigh about 220 without gear and my wife about 140 and ride double a lot. i also ride by myself offroad in rough rocky terrain and do quite a lot of wheelies sometimes clicking up to 5th gear. no troubles i can see.
