I've got an 1150 and I mounted it above the air box using a Kildala plate. Alternatives are the tool area, ABS pump (if you are sans ABS) or the document area if you have a 1200.

On the info bracket that's at the rear of the airbox. Fits well there.

A question for those of you that mount them here..

Aren't you worried about water getting into the block during heavy rains??

Right behind the tool tray, which was filled with the Autocomm and heated gear controller.

... and while you're at it, do yourself a favor and keep the wiring clean.
