Gen 1 Brake side mirror mount question

I've been using bar ends but need a better solution on mirrors. I know I can get the FZ8 clutch perch for a mount on that side so no worries there. Problem is the brake side. With my R1 conversion, I'm ditched the standard Gen 1 brake master cylinder set up and am using the R1 Brembo master cylinder that does not have the perch mount.

Any ideas out there to mount or find a good master cylinder option with a perch on the brake side?

Best,
Ron

I used an L bracket to make a perch for my R1 front master cylinder. It took a little grinding to shape it correctly but it worked great.

For $2.41 with free shipping from Hong Kong, I don’t hold much faith in their product.
