Looks like it should work nicely.

Very nice!
Of course it helps to have the plasma do the hard part for you. Did the edges require any clean-up?

Absolutely. I suck at cutting aluminum. Mostly do steel and have that pretty wired. Aluminum settings are really finiky the torch just goes apeshit when you put it on auto height control. I just don't do enough of it to have it dialed. Some guys can make it cut like butter.

Good enough for a prototype I guess

I looks like you are using button head hardware for attachment to the bike. Just a thought, but you might want to consider using countersunk bolts to avoid having the head of the bolt wearing a hole in the rotopax due to vibration. I had a two gallon rotopax strapped to the back of my GS when I went to Alaska and even with it tightened down it still left chafe marks on the aluminum rack.
