    I've got an 1150 and I mounted it above the air box using a Kildala plate. Alternatives are the tool area, ABS pump (if you are sans ABS) or the document area if you have a 1200.

    On the info bracket that's at the rear of the airbox. Fits well there.

    2 things....

    1 - Mac, that shit is bad ASS!!
    2 - Tom at http://www.excelcyclewerkes.com/index_files/Page577.htm has an AWESOME kit. He actually has a stainless steel mount that mounts vertically on the screw that holds the manual holder under the seat. I installed mine this weekend. Comes complete with pre wired relay. Plus he's a great guy and great customer service.

    AHAAAAAAA, I think I found a flaw :lol3

    Not really but I gotta ask, your relays aren't screwed to your battery are they?

    :dunno

    There are always flaws! I have had a fair amount of mil-spec wiring / soldering experience, and to do it over, there are things I'd do a little differently.

    Actually they are. The top of the battery where the sticker is applied is just an insert, so there is a space under the top. I popped off this cap, and bolted (with nylock nuts on the bottom) my relays. The three relays are 1) for the centech, 2) for the 4 x 55w PIAA 1100X lamps, and 3) for the Stebel horn.

    mine is in a plastic box, along with the relay, mounted up front on a dash I made, it made it so only one power cable is running to the battery, everything is powered from that up front on our bike

    BTW here is a compact fuse panel and relay

    WOW!! :eek1 Nice Job!! What is covering the wires? Haven't seen it before but would like to use it for the longer runs (Centech box/lights/horn going to be a winter project). Thanks.

    Not a Centech but a Fuze Block... the relay is built into the unit.
