WOW , I would like it mounted just like yours , I just went and looked at it , took a flash pic and it didn't come out too good , my winch switch would have to be moved from the top to the bottom and the mirror moved , minor things ,I take the mirror off it need be no pain no gain --- thanks so much Retro !!!!

I think it would really help me , being my fans are over-ridden , I am constantly checking the toggles and feeling for the air blowing , cause I can't hear them with the sounds jamming

I know exactly what you are talking about by flipping the mount and switch , I done that before ---- funny you brought that up as one of those switches is on my list for the Blue 300 , finally getting around to mounting the winch plate , being it is a 92 makes it kind of rare of a plate

Cool, I got a pattern for a plug n' play handlebar mount then! Do ya think that relay box will bolt up under your winch plate? Or should I find a smaller/different box?

Under the rear of the winch plate is the hydraulic brake splitter , but under the front of the winch plate is an opening , handle bar is crowded , but everything is movable

@fishfiles - Your 450 has the choke cable in the way of a flipped over winch switch mount I think? That bugger takes up all of the space below the bar... I'll look at it some more maybe we can figure something out.

A slightly different mount shape might work though... we might be able to put the gizmo below the winch switch...? It looks like there is enough space between the choke cable and the winch switch for the gizmo. It would hide those clamp bolts but don't know how far away from the bar it would end up being, once it was angled up toward your eyes while sitting on the bike.

I can send ya an enclosure that I ruined while dremeling out holes, maybe that would help us get it just right. :-)

The relays box can mount anywhere that is out of sight and not interfering with other stuff. Its submersible, and made of fairly strong ABS plastic about .090" thick. Overall it measures about 5 1/8" long x 2 9/16" wide x 1 9/16" thick.

The control enclosure for the office measures:
Quote:
69.5mm x 50.5mm x 21mm (2.736 x 1.988 x .827)
We might be able to find a smaller relays box if we can get by with just one automotive relay mounted inside that box. If we need two (we probably do since you have two fans to control?) we'd need to keep this same size box.

I have all sorts of extruded aluminum shapes to make brackets from... I'm a hoarder... so if we need to mount the relays box on aluminum 1st, then mount that assembly to the frame somewhere that should be doable.

I may build another control unit for @wheelsquad too, once I get eyeballs on his bike, cause I'm a bit concerned that our clamp mount idea won't be strong enough.

lets keep it simple and smaller , I am just worried about the cooler fan , so one relay will be fine , I will keep the engine fan on the toggle switch and only use that one when on dry lland or after parking and shutting the engine down , I wouldn't want the fan under the tank to come on when the atv is submerged in water ------- as far as mounting it some where , I think I can come up with something , maybe the under side of that winch plate
