If u can lengthen the wires (for 06-08) then I think alongside the air intake is a popular location as the 09+ originally mounted behind the right indicator.
Otherwise, under the battery tray on the opposite side to the exhaust is an option for 06-08 bikes without lengthening the wires.

When the 06-08 are replaced under warranty, I believe they still mount them in the original location between the shock and engine.

The R/R with a 13+ race harness is intended to mount in the tail. I preferred it up front, so I just unraveled the tape on the harness and there was plenty of wire to reroute. Now it's on a GB frame slider bracket. Solid as.

Ive also got a slipper in the mail which should be a nice update, and as I was flushing my coolant I found my RR was running very hot. The cables to it are all stiff and blackened as well, so off that goes and time for a Mosfet. Im thinking of sticking it under the battery tray. But I am not a massive fan of what it does to the silhouette, anyone got any better ideas?
You could always mount it like I did:

Fantastic, this is my chance to once again show where the PREVIOUS owner of my bike relocated it.

While that does ensure airflow it's a horrible place for engine performance.

Are you referring to the heating of the intake air or the compromise of the function of the resonance chamber that the airbox serves as at higher RPMs (to slightly over-fill the cylinders)?

If you are referring to the former I'd agree and if you are referring to the latter the resonance chamber might actually be between the velocity stacks and the air filter and might not include the space above it (where this R/R is). Would be very interesting to learn.

Gotta admit this was a resourceful thought no matter what though :)

Heat output in the air box will hurt more than the reduced volume.
