Default Where to put HID ballast?

I just ordered a hid kit and i was wondering where the monkey put the ballasts. I got the thin ballast kit, but the who area looks pretty crowded...

Any suggestions?

I put my under the plastic cover right in front of the tank , The Black piece covring all the harnesses it secure from the tank to the front fairing , loosen the screws and you can tuck the ballast up under the plastic, between the air vent and the plastics, it worked for me !!!!!! i got a 8000K kit super bright

In the how to section there are several write ups on HID installs. They show pics where they stuck theirs.

I fixed mine at the bottom of the upper stay ("A" - the little one that connects the main one with the frame) cowl holder. Just fixed it with plastic tightening (sorry - I don't know the word for it - it is used for fixing wires - put one part in to another and then pull it - it self tights, and you can then cut the rest of it...)

I have mine in the same place as redzintimidator. It works well there.
