    How much clearance is it off?
    If it’s close I would sand down the edges of the mount. You could use painters tape and sand and smooth the edges to squeeze it in

    I don’t think one bolt will hold it there is allot of vibration through the bars.

    You can, cover it with painters tape first.
    I wonder if you could drill a hole through the backing plate and route the wire through it
