Love the idea but I believe the zip tie will eventually become brittle and let you down due to it being to close to a heat source...

Personally, I had that issue when mounting the rectifier provided with the BDK generator and even one of the one that holds my oil cooler guard failed. I have now twisted some lockwire and then ran it through some heat shrink to keep it from scratching anything.

Hope you have better luck than I did! (y)
Where did you mount your BDK rectifier? Mine fits perfectly here. I have the blue cable routed behind the frame now.

I didn't want mine to be exposed on the side of the bike in case of crash (which actually happened eventually) so I moved it to the outside of the subframe/kinda under the seat. I also have my ECU under the tank for the same reason. I'll take a pic for you if you wanna see it.

I actually found an old picture I took of it when I first mounted it. Cables run under the seat/tank. Been a couple of years and no issues so far so I'm gonna say it works!

And no, my rearsets do not look that... 😂😂 that was just a 'quick fix' cause my boots were getting destroyed on my old rearsets guard.

So while looking for a mounting spot for the AIM sporty cam 3, I found another bolt that requires TI love. Ordered a few diff stem and ram mounts to see how I can install the camera under the lower triple. Yes, I’ll make sure it won’t get crushed during hard braking
