1) make sure that you do not fit the tank to high up or else you will not be able to turn the key which releases the saddle. Mine is at the very upper limit which will allow the key to turn. I got lucky!
2) 1/4 inch steel is probably overkill. My next bracket with be thinner stock.
3) Stock signals fit with 1/4 inch clearance
I had previously modified my seat release to remove the key switch. That mod is somewhere in this thread.
