Lanyard mounting problem

First off I think it's kind of retarded you need a lanyard for street legals considering there's a tip over switch but anyway. I have no room. I can probably get away without it next time as I haven't brought the 10R to the strip yet and I got a warning the last time.

I wanted this

but it wont bolt on to anything I have, nothing on the bars other than the switches are stock. Any ideas guys? Pics to help me out.

Get a lanyard with a screw terminal at the end. Then use a self tapping screw to attach it to your existing kill switch. You screw it to the bottom "run" position so if you come off the bike, the lanyard pulls the switch to the kill position. Cheap and easy and I've done it before with good luck. When not in use, just loop the lanyard over the clip-on.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

This only works depending on how strict their tech guys are with motorcycles....in the past I've just bought a keychain coil cord and velcro'd it to my kill switch. It was good enough for them...

How about the Orient Express one. I have that one and its great and it replaces the clamshell half of the master cylinder clamp so you dont need any extra space.

^^^yes that one ^^^ PMR makes them, I have the one like JLG0987's but I ground mine to fit.

another alternative Isee on a lot of bikes is just put some bubble gum on a shoe string so it will look like sheet!

this is the other option. those are supposed to mount to your Master Cylinder. Lookin at the pics you posted, I want to clarify, what prevents you from mounting to there? You unbolt the clamp that holds all the wiring and tether for the switch in place of the clamp you already have. I just cant tell why you wouldnt be able to, so insight would be great?

For mine, Ill get you a pic later, but I have the stock forks on my Gen 1 an have one of the "older" style that is supposed to loop around the bar and is all contained to itself. Instead, I just mounted it to the top of the fork around the preload adjuster and it stays put. Unfortunately, thats no help in your situation.

The bar clamp on the brembo mc isn't straight up and down it's offset. like a 15 degree angle.

I see it now. Can you rotate the throttle housing at all? or would that mess something up or hit something?
