There does not seem to be enough space in the actual Aspencade headlight cavity to install the HID ballast box .
... and it has a pretty short wire to the bulb.
I am sure there is lots of space inside the fairing , close by , but....
( It would also be easy to drill a 1/2 inch hole at the back of the headlight cavity)
The lower part seems blocked by a air-dam black metal plate, as is the part by the triple clamp
The upper back is blocked by the speedometer LCD and the radio, and on both sides, thru the glove boxes seem cluttered with lots of cables.
So , my question .... With a minimum of parts removal, what's the easiest way to get two hands and a HID ballast box, and a couple of strips of velcro INSIDE the fairing , close to the Headlight cavity ??
( My riding friend, who owns a much more "open" bike said , "Start by removing the top box and both saddlebags !")
Ha.. Ha... Ha.. not particularly funny
Suggestions highly appreciated ...

I'd probably do what you're proposing - drill a hole and mount the ballast in the fairing. Just be sure to seal the hole once it's in place, as rain can get in around the headlight and into the fairing through that hole otherwise.
