I looked inside the panel & there are a couple of electrical connectors there, so figured it probably wouldn't fit. If you can post a pic' that would be good.I routed mine behind the front sprocket and along the bottom of the swing arm. I used the Sugri mouldable adhesive to stick the pipe in place and it’s worked a treat. I wasn’t that impressed with the wick and replaced it with a Scottoiler twin feed.
I wish I’d seen your post before as I could have shown you my install as the reservoir is tucked in behind the side panel with just the fill tube accessible under the seat. You’ve probably already found out the system takes ages to fill and it’s better to fill the pipe rather than bleed it.
What bike have you fitted it to?
