That's a much more elegant solution than the worm clamp provided with mine. At $8.00 a pop, I'm in.  Just ordered one. (That shipping, though...)

Jeffrey two questions: why did you do away with the bracket that used the original mounting holes? And does your reservoir vibrate with your current setup? Mine does and not sure how I feel about it. (Tried to Copied your setup) .

Kevin,
The bracket I cobbled together ended up being a failure.  When riding 2 up and fully loaded in 'tour mode' with a top case, the swing arm brace came in contact with the reservoir...luckily no damage, just cosmetic scratches to the swing are brace.  It's amazing the range of motion.  So I ended up using the bracket that Traxxion provided.  I originally thought that the bracket would be attached using both mounting holes.  This is not the case. The bracket is attached to the bike with a single bolt.  Traxxion provides a longer bolt for the rear-most passenger peg mount.  This allows additional length for the bracket and the Traxxion supplied nut.  In my case, because I have canyon cages, which also mount to the rear-most passenger peg bolt, I had to special order a REALLY long bolt, which was tough to find since it is fine thread. I did not use the radiator clamps, that was not the look I wanted.  So I used the single staging clamp.  I have not noticed a vibration, although I really haven't looked for any.  I'm not sure what adverse effects would be caused by vibration.  My understanding is that the reservoir is filled with oil and nitrogen.  Traxxion has heard many complaints, but I don't think they have any interest in making a better solution.

Swing arm issue, had it too with my first mounting on my 2017 along with the one hole alignment problem. ( moved shock from my 2008 before selling, work great on there.) Never liked the hose clamp straps either, so jump on your lighting mount idea. Not sure if it is all the extra holes I drilled in the Traxxion bracket to make it work or what. But if I bump the reservoir it vibrates like a tuning fork. I think I want to make a bracket that uses the light bracket and the original mounting holes. I will let all know if I get one done.

Well after a little trial and error here is pictures of the bracket I came up with. Use the original reservoir mounting holes and clears the suspension arm. only issue (not for me) is adjusting the damping. I don't change mine. As you can see it has about a 3/4 inch offset. And fits inside the lighting bracket. Not as pretty as I would like. After further testing I may take it off and clean it up.
