Things are definitely shifting around and as a result of losing the stock headlight and ears, I had to remount my ignition. There are some pretty standard options that mount the ignition on the left or right of the front down tube of the frame. These mounts are cool but I wanted something different. One night, during one of my typical moments of insomnia, I came across a company called BAAK Motorcyclettes. They offer a crazy ignition mount which puts it right about the throttle body. Their photos weren't very clear but I ordered one up anyways because the idea of having the ignition in this location seemed pretty cool.
What you get in the package is a very sturdy mount that bolts to the frame, above throttle body, and an extension wire harness. In order to move the ignition to this new location, you need to pull the stock wire harness back towards the rear of the bike. As a result, you need an extension for the wires that lead up the headlight, which is provided in this mount kit...

This is a super clean sturdy mount and I love the location of the ignition now. I love how its abnormal. Even some friends of mine who own triumphs went ahead and ordered the same mount after seeing mine. It's super cool and gives the bike a vintage feel....
