Won't the heat from exhaust harm the solenoid over time? Can you remember why you mounted it upside down?

It wasnt close enought to the exhaust for heat concerns plus a Little heat tape will solve lots of problems.

It was mounted upsuide down there Just to get it mounted. I searched and searched for a place to mount it but Couldnt find one until I found this one.

Same here. I've looked all over the net, and only found 2 suggestions,well 3 now. If I had enough cable I like to mount both in rear dry box, but i guess ill either mount it where you suggest or between airbox and steering stem.

Its not hard to splice it with the proper connectors and Good Crimping pliers..

Another Idea.. See if yuo can get another set of Power wires and connect them togehter to get longer length.. Ring terminal to Ring terminal..

splicing heck easy as chris said even you could solder them together some heat shrink tubing and electrical tape and done, easy....................


if you don't want to splice got to lowes get ya a 6 ga wire your choice and length, done, you could even go with SO cord/jacketed wire within a protective coating, like a heavy duty extension cord, 3 wire, use two wires within the jacket/sleeve and leave third wire alone

I stuck mine in the rear box on my Foreman, these freaking Honda's got no place to stick anything under the seat, most Honda riders go the lazy route and mount them on the fender well & Call it a day, to me NOT the ideal place!

here on one of the only pics Ive taken of it, but 2 years later still working great!



As you can see I had not finished putting Silicone on the wires yet..., but the point is it's in a dry place & works for me!
