    So, today I had a chance to do the air filter, and grabbed those photos. This is where I mounted the Rostra Cruise control box a few years ago when I put it in. I'm using the bracket that was originally used for the grip heater connections. Those are now located further to the right.

    DeanB had asked about the linkage mounting. Here's the factory 2014 F6b throttle body. Note that on the lower section in the upper left, the bracket for mounting the cruise control cable jacket (the black part that does not move) is already there. Simply threading one of the provided nuts onto the "jacket" of the cable, setting it in the provided bracket, and threading on a 2nd nut to sandwich the bracket provides an easy mount.

    If you look lower on the left, you can see the peg on the throttle came that I connected the inner throttle cable (the wire rope that moves) to.

    DeanB had also asked about where I attached the cruise cable itself.

    Here's a close-up of the peg that I drilled. It appears to be a stop on the throttle cam that is meant to "catch" the cruise cam on full wings. In our case, the outer floating cruise cam is not present. I simply drilled this peg with a ~1/6" hole, slid the provided Rostra end onto the peg, then put a cotter pin through the new hole to hold it in place. I still think that using a full wing throttle body, which has the cruise cam on it already, is the preferred method, but this seems to work just fine.
