Installing ballast on my 08 R6 for my HID Xenons

Hey guys just need some help, I've installed the h7 xenon bulbs and connected the ballast but don't know where to mount the ballast? Don't want it hanging out and in the way of the front forks or when I'm turning.

Does anyone know where to mount them or where they have theirs mounted?

Cheers

Install tip: Get some industrial strength velcro, so you can easily take the ballasts off if you needed. Also, I use loctite super gel glue on the adhesive side, to make sure the velcro stays on, you can use any high temp glue.

Re: Installing ballast on my 08 R6 for my HID Xenons

hey buddy, nice pics! question though, does the positioning of the ballasts rub against your fairings at all? I took mine apart this arvo in preparation of my install (from borka) and it looks like there is bugger all room? can you Please post a pic of clearance by chance??

cheers
