    On the boost gauge subject, where is the best place to mount the gauge? I dont want it in the compartment lid or inside there. Do many use gauge pods or mount them anywhere else?

    In the beginning of my mods I put gauge in the handle bar pad .

    Thats not a bad idea, I was thinking in the right hand plastic fender, sort of where the fuel filler is but furthur back and on the rh side. The surface is a little bit curved though.

    This is not my ski but I ordered an Autometer 3244 angled gauge mount, have the idea to mount it where the arrow is pointing angled towards me
