Doesn't that nut need to be on the other side of the brace. Otherwise it's just relying on the thread in the bracket and not the thread in the bracket and nut. If you see what i mean.
In other words, pressure exerted on the bolt could strip the thread on the bracket, or damage them.

Is there not one on the other side of the bracket too? I don't think the bracket itself is threaded.

bracket is threaded i swap it round , dame thing had very bad instructions
LOL, the ones most of us got in the scabbynet GB had no instructions at all! In fact I'm pretty certain CDF had just copied another design, as I had an email converstaion with Chris about 6 months later as he was trying to sort what should be in teh kit and how it was fitted.

I also bought a brake stopper from CDF probably a year ago. It was different to that one though. Called the Newage or something similar. There was a nut welded on one side. The braket was not threaded. This is a pic of it installed

Not bling at all, truly effective, my wife could move the M/C about 6mm with just a firm push, with EBC reds on my brakes used to feel wooden as I could get pedal travel with no extra braking to speak of as the bulkhead flexed, with the stopper on they feel fine, firm, but fine.

Oh sorry mdg, you don't go fast enough to need brakes do you, so it would be bling on a nastily aspirated.......:N_poke:

just wanted to report, there is a noticeable improvement in the feel of the brakes with this bit of kit fitted, one of the better mods for any foz in my book

A nastily aspirated which is on course to win FOTM that is. No need to compensate for a lacking in the trouser department here. :icon_cool:
