Fully understand the side-pipe heat issue. I believe I can exit the sheet metal cover front face and route inboard under the frame. This should offer protection from the pipes. I also have protective heat shield wrap if necessary. Patrick's hard lines probable route along the frame. My fix is temporary and hard lines are in the future.
In response to Cobra29, I found connecting the hoses to the reservoir in the engine bay above the foot box will give better clamp access. I replaced the hoses when I replaced the masters but again that was just to get back on the road. The reservoir had to be raised further from the top of the foot box to attach the clamps. That positioned the reservoir attachment holes out of alignment with the bracket. You could enlarge the foot box holes to clear the clamps and push them back into the cockpit.
The bottom line for me is get them out of the cockpit.
