rear shock with external reservoir

Where do I mount the external reservoir?

It came with 2 radiator style hose clamps about 2" in diameter and some zip ties. It also came with 2 identical rubber pieces. One side has the curvature of the reservoir the other side has the curvature of a 5/8" pipe or so.

Any input or advice would be appreciated.

How about using the 2 rubber pieces and one hose clamp and securing it to the left side rear foot peg bracket just to the inside of the peg. Keep in mind the chain guard must be on so the chain and hose do not come in contact.

Typically remote reservoirs are anchored to sub-frame structures in the area near the shock assembly...

Is this not an option for you...?

Forget about the movement...!

I don't think I could without adding a bracket or doing some cutting. Also the hose on it is quite long. I'll post a pic tonight before work (night shift). I'm delirious and hitting the hay.

Is this kosher? The hose is quite stiff and won't move around. Maybe someone local could teach me how to set it up correctly? Or maybe give me some better mounting tips? Thanks!

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.
