I like your plan, was thinking something along those lines and will be interested in seeing your location of a fuse block too.
my bars are 17mm above standard on a mount to take the scotts damper (i dont have one yet but planning too at some point) i think any more than that will need some of the wires extending ... rtf has just confirmed that

i'll try and weigh them at the weekend but its all nice and light;)

Cool wish i had known it had been done before i would have picked your brains first!
i considered that setup but was concerned about the wires for lights being exposed hence the mod i had done. did you have any problems with the brake line getting taught around the comp unit? am guessing that with the higher bar risers the comp unit is totally above the headlight mask? i think mine is going to clash

Not a huge deal, I didn't even say anything about it to Paul, just make sure you emphasize EXACTLY what you want and he is clear about it. Great workmanship otherwise.
there is a ktm parts section on his site now, like you when i was trawling for a solution there was no mention of the ktm comp protectors, only happened to come across them when trawling an HDB post on here
