Mine is on top of the air box snorkel under the seat.

So you set it with the seat off?

Yes, initially. Once I found the settings that seemed to work the best I have had no need to to mess with it.

I've got mine zip tied under the seat too, though it may be temporary. I'm getting a Fuzeblock which will be going behind the dash of my Lynx fairing, then I may mount it up there some where. My FI controller has spots for 10 maps, so if I have to change the map I'm assuming it won't be very often - IDK, under the seat may just be fine. How often are you going to be changing it up? The instructions that came with mine have you putting it under the stock fairing...

I wasn't necessarily referring to your post.

...no worries...

When I had the FMF controller (use Athena now), I had it velcroed under the left side panel on the battery. Easier to access it there.

I did a cheaper than Fuzeblock on this bike. A bus bar and fuse holder.
Not much room left under the seat for a Fuzeblock. I had to relocate the tip-over sensor as well.

I think I'll put it on my bars while adjusting and when I'm happy with it throw it under the seat.

Right on. I bought my WRR out there, in Victorville. Nice part of the world if you have one of these.

Question about X->R conversion

Hi all,

I have a WRX that I've been riding for the last year with knobbies on the stock 17" wheels. I bought a set of 21/18 wheels to do the R conversion and I'm finally getting around to switching over. I'm pretty much used to the big front brake (don't use it on dirt, hardly). Any opinions on whether I should swap the brakes or not?

Thanks! I'm loving this bike.

... and use it on dirt!

When I was new to dirt I stayed off the front and favoured the rear. I soon learnt I had things the wrong way round. Try bombing down a slippery hill and relying on the back brake and you'll soon start carrying spare undies on your rides
