    If you intend to use it as intended, it should be somewhere quite close to the driver's seat where it won't disrupt any operations such as steering, cavitation plate operations, v-drive handle, etc. Between the driver's legs works very well. You shouldn't be doing much there while driving. LOL

    I've seen alot of guys mount them to the stringer that runs between their legs. I dont have full length stringers so i mounted mine to my place diverter control along with my fuel, ignition and start switches.

    Here's a pic before i powder coated the plate.



    The kill switch is mounted below the pate, sideways against the PDC.


    I didnt take any pictures of the finished product, maybe i'll snap a few today

    skippers WFOT is right, from front to back it goes ignition, fuel, starter. My timming on my motor is locked out so what i do is flip on fuel, press the starter button with my thumb and then with my index finger i flip the top switch when the starters up to speed. Works great so far.

    Todd, I have wacked it a time to two, actually the PD handle is kind of guarded by the front seat now. That pic above is when i was mocking things up, it's not that far forward anymore
