Default ECM Relocation Options Thread

I think it is just because riding season has ended for some of us northern folks...but seems like we are getting more and more questions about relocating the dreaded ECM on 07'-09' models. So I figured I would start a thread and try to combine everything that I have seen out there into one nice spot so people can view everything on the table and most importantly so I don't have to look all over God's creation trying to find where I saw something! If someone knows of other options or threads I missed PLEASE add on or make comments! Thanks!

So here we go:

This is from "eNightster":





http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=419682
http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=418093

This is from "Micheletti" (an addition to what eNightster did):

Didn't find any pics...maybe Micheletti can get some for us.

http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=510685

This is from "Jorg":



http://www.xlforum.net/vbportal/foru...d.php?t=140585

This is from "Slackster":



http://xlforum.net/forums/s....php?p=1776736

This is from me, "Cosmo Kramer":



http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=482796

This is from "Pharcas":

FYI, this set-up also relocated the PCIII under the battery cover



http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=428248

This is from "LuckyB":



http://xlforum.net/forums/s...=328780&page=4

This is from "Krypto":



http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=348924

I know there is more out there....but I need to get some sleep! I'll add more as soon as I can track them down. If possible, please try and provide a picture and link to the thread or a write-up so we can visually see and know what you did. Thanks!

this is awesome cosmo, thanks for taking the time to put it all in one place! i'm gonna have my work cut out for me this winter and this should ease the pain a bit by not making me have to look all over this site for ideas.

Here is an option that is on ebay that hides the ECM under the spring seat...I know others have done something similiar (they molded a fiberglass cover to cover the ecm and frame opening under the seat if anyone remembers and can post the link to the thread) and I'll try to find those pics/threads too.

Anywho...this may give some guys another option / idea:







Here is a link to the seller's store (don't want to link an auction cause I think after a while the link will be dead after the auction has ended):

Here is a thread from Nightkid3 showing this kit on his bike:

It is funny you should post this; I bought this not knowing if it would look good, It is totally awesome! The guy is easy to work with and is fast to ship. I had him make me a seat and p-pad to cover the ECM hole in the fender on my 07' it looks killer, I will get some pics up here when I get home... for reference material

I do not have a powercommander. It is just the ECM that goes under the seat. I dont think there would be room in the box under the seat for that, but you could find room under the battery cover tin for it.

I also have this kit on my bike and it is awesome... i don't think that the seat in the advo pic gives it justice so here is a like to some pics of mine... i have an ant brown alligator seat from Mother Road Customs with the P-pad he custom makes that will hide the ECM hole in the fender on the 07' sporty... check it out: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...7&l=716cd7d6d7

just bought one of these cosmo. however, i lifted my seat and i also have the main wiring harness under there and the security module in the tray along w/ my pcII. im think'n i'll put my pcIII (which btw is tethered off of my ecm with enough slack) in the battery tray. the lil security modeule i can hide either under the seat pan or behind the oil bag. the mian wiring harness however, i'm not too sure about. i'm hoping that the seat pan has enough room between the pan and the frame to keep it under there or i'm gonna have to find somehwre to put it.
