Scratcher location on 2014 ZR 6000

So I finally purchased a set of scratchers (Woody's cable style scratchers) for both my ZR8000 and ZR6000. The 8000 had a great spot to mount the scratcher and it stores away nicely. However, I'm struggling to find a good spot to mount the scratcher on the ZR6000 where it will work and be stored away securely. I currently have it just behind the front bogie wheel but when I store it away it pops off easily. Does any one have a suggestion for this style machine?

I tried adjusting the tip angle but couldn't find a happy medium where the scratcher is functional and doesn't pop off easily. I decided to add with these "rail savers" that should hold the tip securely. Everything I read was positive about them. And yes, the mounting hole needed to be drilled out to 3/8" diameter for the Woody scratchers that purchased.

I put these on but needed to attach it by the rubber stop on the skid. The "rail savers" look like they will work well but they are stupid expensive for a simple insulated clamp. I hope these scratchers to the trick, I'm sick and tired of both my '14 ZR8 and ZR6 overheating.

I'll double check that out the next time I'm back up north by my sled. I did look at that when I mounted these and didn't think it was going to be an issue. Looking back, maybe I should have gone with the 16" scratchers that mount off the A arm. Or AC could just resolve the cooling issue! I remember years ago Yamaha used to have a small radiator and nothing more than a computer fan on it.
