    @DEcosse I'm not sure now -- been a while since I looked back there. I'm thinking it needed to be turned sideways (back parallel to the back of the engine) vertically, with the connectors out of the top - thus requiring the longer harness.

    Your concern about the shaft movement is not totally unfounded -- and the shaft movement per se might not be the real concern -- I was more concerned about that location being totally exposed to the elements, and wanting to mount above the existing bracket rather than below.

    OK, now I understand what you meant - description earlier had confused me

    That is somewhat along the lines I was thinking from the get-go, but rather than standing on-end completely vertically, to mount at 45 degree angle, following the fender shape

    OEM (std/classic/roadster)

    Something like this .........
    (yes I know, the illustration is horrible!)

    That would also negate the need for extenders

    Note that I have nothing 'real' to look at so can only speculate off images

    Au contraire, mon ami . . . your description hits the nail on the head !

    BINGO in other parlance.

    An contraire, mon ami . . . *necessitates* the need for longer connectors.

    Trust me on this. If it didn't I would have already mounted it back there.

    ........ and rather than trying to fabricate a tricky mount to bolt to the original mounting piece or the TOS bracket, a simply 'L' bracket with the 'short ' leg of the 'L' bolting to to the vertical section of the actual battery box?

    You are suggesting connectors at the top, so understand that
    The way I had drawn in my nasty little cartoon - with connectors at the bottom, you surely wouldn't? - they would be in approximately same place as original

    Wish you could walk an inch in my shoes (we share the same size 42).

    If I don't cut the existing bracket, and I don't intend to, then even that little rise to put the unit up requires a longer harness. They designed and fabricated the harness for the Touring 'just so'.

    I got my mounting kit from Bedifferent and it works great! (many Thanks). I still have the stock air cleaner ducting, Tors, and the Triumph tune. Got out last Sunday for a shakedown and got a surprise side benefit! I executed a holeshot and the big Touring lofted the front wheel about six inches for ten feet or so! I guess they will wheelie!
