In regards to the ridiculously located main fuse/solenoid under the battery.  I was contemplating doing the fuse relocation mod that a few members have done but that would only allow eased replacement of the fuse, it does not resolve the real issue, which is water ingress in the event of a blocked drain hole, though my drain has not been blocked, water has still made its way into the starter terminal at the solenoid and started furring up.

QUESTION - Has anyone successfully relocated the whole shebang, or managed to completely seal it to prevent any further issues?

It isn't (that) bad to get at so you may manage without taking the ECU out

The drain hole on this one was clear too so I don't think it was water not escaping that did it, just wetness and detritus getting forced up the drain.
If I still had a Tiger I would probably look at extending the outlet a bit or even fitting a cheap non-return valve to it.
Saying that, a good coating of non-conductive grease will protect it just fine.

No issues.
You will have to ride a few km afterwards for fuel gauge to read again though.

Thanks KM, much appreciated.

I have today purchased some Dielectric grease, so will give it a good coating to hopefully prevent any future issues.  Bloody stupid design though! I would have preferred to move it up out of the way but not sure how I could get around extending all the wires and cables etc.

Those are either all new parts or someone might be a little bored.
