Question Shock install help/question

I'm about to install my new Hyper Pro/Techno Flex shocks, the ones that Klaus at Wilbers is now selling. I have the print out of the instructions from this site, which are great, but I have a question: my rear shock has two remote reservoirs, one for the pre-load adjuster and one that is the compression reservoir/adjusters. My question is: where does the second reservoir mount?

I can not speak to the Hyper Pro set up, but this is how the Wilbers mount the compression adjusters / reservoir. Note, I relocated the "diagnostic plug" to the middle of the rear fender, otherwise it would be blocked by the reservoir. Please post pics of the Hyper Pro shocks.

George, when you get this sorted, can you please be sure to post pictures? If you happen to take any while doing the install, that would be great as well. And any issues that are worth noting. Thanks!
