Well, you are hanging that extra 20 kg out there a good 300mm over where it would be "normally" so it acts like twice that. But the mount should handle it. I had a 300mm F7.2 Newtonian weighing a solid 45 kg when completely configured for use on my 1200 and it did just fine with that long load. I'd be more concerned about flexure and I'd slow the slew rate down to 600x. Of course, you can always try it and see what happens.
