Remote reservoirs...

Where are you guys installing those?

I installed my dragshock today and can't figure out where to put my compression reservoir.

Any ideas?

Most are mounted to the rear footpeg bracket. I have also seen a few guys attach them to the subframe supports.

I will try that Shane. I hope my 20" Alienhead isn't in the way. Is it important to keep it from heat, like too close to pipe?

I don't think heat will be an issue with the bike moving?

My shock came with some blocks to space up the reservoir....but you could just use a section of rubber hose with a splice in it, over the support rail.

Just tried it again and my brock drag shock reservoir will not reach far enough to put it anywhere it seems. It won't go as far as yours shane.
Anyone have the brock shock?
I'm a bit annoyed by this.
I could the swingarm but it would get beat to shit moving with the arm.

+1, Call him and/or check out the new diaries I think they have pics. Not sure if it shows that.

*Edit, that bike doesn't appear to have one. Just give him a call.

Found this picture of Brock's ZX-10, looks like they used some clamps to mount it to the undertail.



This picture of the same bike has it mounted in a different spot.



If you have a Tiger Undertail, that may be your best bet if it is really short.

They are closed on weekends, but did send an email. I will call tomorrow. I may have to drill then under my tail. I'm surprised they didn't make the hose longer for specific bikes. Oh well, I'll just have to wait till Monday.

Thanks guys!
