Still waiting for my motor to be finished. I'm going over the frame and eliminating any brackets not used. I plan on running head stays, the front bracket has 4 holes in it. The first 2 are horn mounts, I think the last hole is for the head stays , what's the middle hole ? I keep looking for pics but can't see inI photographs. I don't want to trim the bracket too much if it's something I'll need later.

Stock frame the coils are mounted up there under the tank. Almost 100 % on that.

Mission accomplished, looks a lot cleaner. My dual coil is mounted under the tank with all the rest of the electronics. Pazon, Sparx, fuse block and even the horn. It's a tight fit but nice and neat.
