Yes.

I took an old handlebar grip, cut a rectangular piece the size of the LP light housing, punched holes in it where the bolts would pass through, and used it as a spacer between the light housing and the back of the fender. It solidified the housing quite a bit and I like to think the rubber adds dampening to keep the vibes from breaking the bulb filament.
