Doesn't matter.  It transmits a radio code.  I've even place mine on the bottom of the tail bodywork.  Some have even put them inside the tail.

Top of the tail, centerline of axle (aprox), with transponder slide in from the front so it hits the stops on the back with lights aimed backwards.

That does several things the radio signal is directional and comes out the bottom of the transmitter strongest, the lights are aimed backwards so pit out can quickly verify that your unit is working and by having it slide in from the front you are less to hav ethe transmitter get knocked or vibrated forward and lost on track/paddock.

If you have a carbon fiber tail section, mount it under the bodywork or your signal strength will be reduced and the tower will mwke you move it so you get scored.

Do they issue this transponder mount at the track? If not, how do I get mine before going to the track? It would be less painless mounting it at home in the garage before the high stress track day. Thanks in advance.

yes, i think at registration for $5 (first one may be free). just bring zip ties, a cordless drill and some bits. it only takes a couple minutes

If you have a carbon fiber tail section, mount it under the bodywork or your signal strength will be reduced and the tower will mwke you move it so you get scored.

If you do have the underseat carbon fiber exhaust cans (Ducati water cooled, BMW R1x00S seem to be the bigger problem bikes R1, 600RRs not so much) or are told by scoring that there is a strength issue with your transmitter mount location then it should be mounted in a tech approved alternate location and there is a pouch type mount that allows for mounting the transmitter in differnet location and having the antennae pointed down.

I've seen a lot mounted to the draft shield under the tail, facing backwards, with no issue.
