Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

For those that have it...where did you mount it? I had mine on the exhaust hanger. I haven't noticed any difference once the exhaust gets hot. ..I was told not to mount (if not a piggyback type) Nitro Reservoir close to heat. Just wondering if the hydraulic preload adjuster might have the same issue (be effected by heat).

Re: Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

I had mine mounted on the exhaust side initially, but switched it over to the other side. I used one of the passenger peg bolt holes to mount it to.
I don't think the heat messes with it at all, but with nothing on the other side, I decided to switch it just for kicks, and ended up thinking it looked cleaner over there anyway.

Re: Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

My 929's is mounted on the side opposite the exhaust, in one of the passenger peg bracket spots. HondaGal put her 954's in the same spot, but used another metal bracket to move it out a bit. It looked like it might have hit her hugger. Just watch for clearance with the hugger.

Did the same thing on my 929.

Yeah it looked close. I was kinda worried about that.

What about it getting dirty? Seems like it would get chain goo slung all over it after awhile....the chain gaurd only does so much.

If you guys don't think there any issue with heat building up the hydraulic pressure (in effect, increasing the preload) I'll just stick it back on the pipe side. One less bolt...less wieght.

Thanks guys.

On the street bike, inside the undertray, right in front of the battery/ecu. Kept it clean and out of the way.

Mounted on the exhaust hanger on the race bike.

Re: Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

I mounted it between the subframe spars on the left side of the bike. It's tucked away from danger but easily adjusted.

Re: Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

Here's what mine looks like.

I don't have any issue with dirt or chain crud. And, it's easier for me to adjust having it on the left side away from the hot exhaust (that I'd probably burn myself with).

Re: Mounting location for hydraulic preload?

Mine is exactly like HondaGals, except I originally didn't space it out and did rip the rear fender off my bike.

that sucks!

I'm going to stick with the lighter exhaust hanger option. My can is Ti so it's not super hot.
