Air shifter installation question?

I have a 2007 zx-10r and bought the MPS electric air shifter. I have searched posts, set, and stared trying to figure out how to install the air ram that connects to the shifter. I cannot figure out a good way. Has anyone installed one of these on a 06-07? Any help please!!!!!!!!!!

7.5" extensions($300), 6 up rear sprocket(free), front straps($20), lowering links($60), removed slipper($200), shinko u-soft rear($165),Yoshi Slip ons ($300) 9.84 @ 143 w/fat boy(230lbs) = priceless.

Thanks Tank! I checked out the website and it wouldn't let me add anything to my cart to see the price so I will have to call them Monday. I modified a bracket to make it work for now but the Pingle bracket looks alot better.

i took left hand heel gaurd off and turned around,hammered flat and drilled hole to hold top of shifter, its cheap and works fine , when you want to go back to stk just buy a heel gaurd and you will have no holes to worry about

Thanks for the help! I will see this weekend if the air shifter pays off. It is our second out of a five race series this weekend. L8tr

Well all in all it worked out well. It did not shift into second on one of the time trials. I think it was drom slipping the clutch too much and hitting the auto shift point before it was supposed to shift. Other then that it was great. The bike was consistent 10.11,.12,.13x2,.15 in time trials. I had to lift on all of my competition runs except one so I am not sure how consistent it would have stayed later in the day. The one competition run, I did not lift on, the bike did not shift to fifth gear. This was due the line feeding the guage which I mounted on my tag rubbing the rear tire and loosin all my air. The bike was bouncing off of the limiter. It was the semis and I luckaly tree'd the guy enough for him to break out. He dialed a 10.00 and was running 9.40s during time trials. HA HA "sandbaggers". I raced a friend of mine in the final but he trashed his clutch on his by run to the finals so I took it easy on the tree and lifted to be sure and get the win. So it was a good day.
