I was at Cycle Gear today and saw an hour meter mounting bracket that is bolted on under the steering stem nut. Anyone use these? Where are you mounting your hour meters?

Just mounted a bracket on the front tank mount and bent in down one side of the frame, this way too its very close to the positive to coil(orange) wire behind the front numberplate. Very clean.

i have a 250F but that doesnt really matter for this. I have mine siliconed to the head of the frame like on the steering colum i guess. Not sure what to call that part of the frame. But that way i can always see how many hours are on it.

This would be my favorite spot. It is totally out of the way, and if it falls off its mount, where can it go? Right in the air box. Since I swap the filter out after every ride day, I'd be able to see it plenty often enough.

I have mine mounted on the frame above the throttle cables and in front of the gas tank. I used two-sided 3m tape from Target.

I have mine zip tied to the throttle cable that runs down the lefthand side of the frame in front of the top side of the radiator

Thats what I was thinking... Its out of the way, I can read it when I swap filters, and its clear of the power washer.

I have mine in the same place, but I used the double sided tape that came with the DR.D and I caulked some clear silicone around the base. If it falls off (which I don't think it will) I will go under the seat.

Velcro also works really well. I have it velcrowed on my 06 at the bar pad and never had it to come off once.

I've got mine mounted in the same spot as I'd had it on my CRF, on the steering stem with 3M double sided tape. After 170 hours of ride time I'd never had it fall off or had any issues with a pressure washer.

I like to use it to keep track of how much time I've put on the bike during any given ride/race day (a good day at the track for me is 2 hours), I personally wouldn't want to have to remove the seat every time I wanted to look at it. But, that's what so great about not living in a communist society - you can do what ever the hell you feel like doing... within reason of course.

I use that same spot. Out sight so I don't keep looking at it while riding but easy enough to see when you need it.

I have mine mounted in the same spot as well with the same tape. I like to get a general idea of how long I've been riding with a quick glance. I don't pressure wash my bikes, so I don't have to worry about water pressure taking it off. I also took up all the slack in the wire so that if it does ever fall off it will only fall about an inch, and out of the way of anything that could harm it.
