Default rear shock help

Anyone with a Katana 1100, where does the remote reservoir mount? I have a pre 98 600, but I'm installing a GSXR rear shock. I'm going to order the clamp for the Katana 1100 remote reservoir, but I'm not sure where it mounts, thanks for your comments in advance.

you can just buy a hose clamp at any auto parts store or at home depot down the faucet repair aisle. And just strap it to the rear subframe. just make sure you put it somewhere away from moving parts and heat.

When I put an RF900 shock on my pre-98 600 I also strapped it to the subframe with a few hose clamps.

Odd thing:
On my pre 98 there is a bracket under the seat that looks perfect for holding the res.. Right size/shape and has room for a hose clamp. BUT:
a. You couldn't access the damper screw.
b. The fairing would hit it.

Odd..
