Where to put Oxford temperature controller?

I am just going to put the first mod on my 2014 650. I cant figure out where to mount the on off / temperature control switch for the oxford grips.

Any photos or suggestions ? I don't want to drill a hole or mount to find its not going to be easy to use or gets in the way of something else .

Thanks

Some use the bolt on the front edge of the upper triple clamp. The one on either side that hold the steel cable guides onto the triple clamp.

Mine's mounted on the left handlebar mirror clamp. Location makes for convenient access although if you have a fat tank bag, there may be contact at full left turn. Twisted Throttle sells several types of switch mounts.

I mounted mine on the left mirror clamp as well, I only used the top bolt and had to bend the mount.

Did mine yesterday. Made my own bracket out of an old aluminum street sign. Powder coated it black and bolted her up. Looks greatimage.jpg

I made a stainless steel bracket similar to the Oxford one but mirrored and mounted it to my left mirror mount. As mentioned you have to watch out for a fat tank bag. I have a Bags Connection City and it does hit but not much.

Off the mirror on the left handlebar looks like the place to mount it. Thanks for all the advice and photos. As soon as my parts arrive im going to start adding to my virgin bike.

Mounted to the bottom mirror mount bolt using a piece of metal strapping:
