    I just got my TFI in and am installing it right now and I can't seem to come up with a good place to place the unit AND feed the wires to the injectors and battery efficiently. Where did you put yours?

    I am not familiar with your model, but on my Ultra I placed it on the left side behind the side cover. Fit nicely with the velcro holding it in place. Simple placement and wiring.

    I would wrap it in a shop cloth and just leave it loose under the seat....

    I never liked GLUE mounts and when i asked if it was OKAY to leave loose the answer was YES from the TEC at dobecks TFI..

    I did my FLHR in the side compartment on right side placed LOOSE n wrapped in a shop cloth using the EMPTY tray spot for the ABS... that works good for me...

    Probably once set properly YOU will FORGET it

    I have mounted light switches and ignition packages under the seat on my dyna , wrapped n LOOSE , never had a problem.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    I ended up putting it under the seat. I ended up putting the baffles in my V&H Short shots staggered, the TFI, and an Arlen Ness big sucker on it yesterday. It sounds so great! :)

    Yeah I used the recommended for now. I may adjust it later. We'll see though.
