Dunno if you have a decent option for testing the EFI situation locally, but that might be good to know. =) Just my two cents. Or more, if I can end up buying one from you all.
Not sure about the EFI set up, this was originally designed for my bike 2006 ( carb ) and I haven't fitted it to any other model, and I'm not able to. I'm not sure what you mean about ECU thickness? Does the ECU unit have to be located in the tray along side the battery? What I do know is everything that is on or in the air box of the carb models fits into these tray's, if there is an ECU unit or extra wiring on the injected models it may not fit.

The brake reservoir is a Triumph accessory part.

You should be able to locate it on your bike, when you do let me know where it is because this could change things for those of you with later models.

Yeah, the ECU and ECU connector are pretty large. About the dimensions of the battery on the carb model in height and width, and about an inch or 25mm in thickness, total. In addition to both of those, you have the OBD-II connector, which is about 25mm by 50mm by 50mm. Also, I don't think the carbed model would have the atmospheric MAP sensor back there, either. Not sure if the fuse box is much different between the two, though.

I'll get exact measurements in a bit here for the ECU. One sec.

With connectors, the ECU measures up to 10cm high, 13.5cm wide, 3cm thick.

Thanks casida, well if the ECU has to go together with the battery and can't go anywhere else, then I don't think this tray is going to work for those who have the injected models, this is already a snug fit with relay, fuse box, etc.....

What a beautiful piece of kit. And an actual product, unlike what British Customs has been promising us for MORE THAN A YEAR.

But unfortunately a great many of us ride EFI bikes.

I don't have an ark on my bike yet. I'm assuming that is a requirement for this product?

Pod filters, jets, brake reservoir ( depending on your taste ) and extension on some of the wiring is all you need.
