Key relocation. 500exc

Where is everyone putting the ignition switch on the 14 500exc's? I don't like it sticking out of the side. I looked but i couldn't find any threads on it. Thanks!

SICASS Racing sells a relocation kit. I pulled mine and bought the XCW plug that does away with it.

This is what I did with mine. Highway Dirt Bikes makes a relocation bracket that mounts to the center clamp. Works great.

I got sick of having to reach over to the right side of the bike to turn the key so I took the original signal mount, and twisted it all up carefully to come up with this mounting:

Thanks everyone. I like the bent mount so you don't have to reach for it. I'm still thinking about getting rid of the key but I haven't decided yet. I don't need it 90% of the time.

I'm liking the key removal plug, like you I rarely need to lock up the bike. After stopping on the trail, forgetting to turn the key off and ending up with a dead battery I decided I'd rather do without it. The key is so easy to defeat I don't consider it a good theft deterrent.

thats pretty funny
an improvement would be a concealed cutout switch, more secure & no key to lose
