You don't want to have the booster wearing a hole in your tank.....safety issue for sure. As noted in #28 above, I mounted a similarly sized DYNA ignition module on top of the flat voltage regulator and took a couple extra precautions against chafing. What happens statically is not necessarily what's happening while out on the road.
Horse/Stan, thanks for the info. I refitted the tank and the booster was in fact a bit too far back on the frame. I un-tightened and slid everything forward and using Horse' grease trick I found that this now leaves clearance. I needed to reroute the clamp strap thru the slot in the relay mount. Some kind of rubber patch seems appropriate as well.
