I guess you'll have a Lysholm sleeper-charger on your motor. :P

Thanks!

The guys on the Motec forum gave me this advice which I figured was worth sharing:

From a heat point of view you wont have any issues mounting it like that, Don't bother with the fan it won't make any useful difference, unless your have extremely high ambient temperatures (ie more than 70-80 deg C).

You shouldn't mount any vehicle electronics with the connectors facing upwards. Condensation or and any water can run down the wiring and then pool on the top of the connector/case. It will eventually work its way into the device with heat cycling. You should mount them with the connectors facing down to reduce the chance of this happening.

It is always preferable to have some form of damping/rubber mounting as part of you mounting solution to reduce the vibration seen by the electronic components.


So there's that...
