If you look at the manual that I provided a link for, there's a picture of it installed.

I've seen 2-3 different styles of relocating plates/brackets. The nicest 1 I've seen so far is a smaller trianglular plate that mounts the reservior in closer to the frame in that same location.

My plan is to use the $10.00 Vance Hines bracket to fab up a shorter better fit bracket. That along with the rear caliper mod should give me a much cleaner look on that side of the bike.

you can always either put the res up under the seat or get rid of the res and plug the line with a bolt like alot of guys have done. cleans up that side nicely.

not a very good pic but you can see where it's supposed to be and that there is nothing there.

Here's a picture of mine. I like the holes in it. Breaks it up and sorta picks up with the brake lever. I think this came with my Roadhouse slip on when I bought it in about '06.

Under the seat is not an option for me (things already look too busy there).

Best way to relocate the rear reservoir is with a nice set of forward controls
