I have a couple ideas of how to get the reservoir mounted but would like to see how some of you folks have yours situated. With the banzai mount exhaust, I have limited myself.

You can try to go for the HRC tube thingy and place a Camelbak tube sock over it... Just an idea that I may do when I get real bored

I'm dumb.... The res for mine is hidden in the compartment bin, I've been thinking about an L bracket that would allow proper fitment by the right side can but never really got around to it considering the whole out of sight out mind thing...

Yup, same here. My reservoir nestles in the tool tray in my trunk. But I suppose you'll want every cubic millimeter of space in your's.

I think DH was going to make some brackets. I hope that comes to be, I'd probably like one.
