Alright then: Touratech cradle for Zumo 660 on a Desmotimes steering stem RAM-mount. The vibrations of the engine caused the GPS to lose the 12V-connection at certain RPMs so I mainly bought the cradle because the GPS is now rubber mounted, which solves the problem completely.
The ability to lock it is nice, but was not a main argument for purchase. Still very happy with it. They have a newer mount now which has supposedly been improved.
I'm FINALLY getting there. With a gift card from my Mother-in-Law, I finally snagged a few RAM bits for the Ural, as it was an easy fitment with the bar mount piece. It, a shorty arm, and the x-grip holder have been working great. Seeing Waze on the commute today along with a reliable GPS speed was quite nice. I'm looking forward to finally testing out the CoPilot GPS app on some FS roads.
For the ST, I found this:
M8 bolts are used on our clip-ons and also on the Cycle Cats. For the CCs, there is an M8x1.25 hole on the inside end of the bars. They are used to support the clutch and brake reservoirs on my setup. I'm going to try mounting the RAM ball there.
I'm planning on transferring the arm and x-grip back and forth.
Need to revisit this as I am looking for a way to mount my phone to use as a GPS. Anyone out there find a newer way to mount on an ST4 like mine. Is the RAM mount off the steering head bolt the best way to go. Also, I noted before that there is a wiring set-up for heated grips already present on the ST, so can that be used for a USB charger (I had a problem with an always on system using the stock jack....had to find a hill to jump start the beast!).
I just made a mount for my Navman on my ST2.
Used the 2 existing 8mm bolts that bolt the handlebars on, longer bolts (40mm M8) and a pair of spacers made from 1/2" tubing and a piece of light angle aluminium
Works a treat, might try spacing the aluminium up on an angle as the Navman is a bit hard to read in the sunlight but otherwise all perfect:laugh:
You could mount anything this way (cellphone included) as long as you have a case that you can screw to the aluminium.
Long story short, friend has one for sale. She was awarded it as part of court cases against a couple pos thieves. Haven't looked at/listened to it yet but, from the few photos I've seen it appears to be in good shape, oddly. 19K miles, (will be) a clear title, runs/moves under it's own power...
Today I’m trying to wake this bike from an almost six year slumber. Fresh fluids ect, new battery, bike powers up but will not engage or it seems trip the relay for the starter. These are all firsts for me so am I missing some thing?? Bike is on the center stand and in neutral...
After a few years of my ST3 sitting because it had a problem with gas getting into oil...
I just got the bike put back together, new belts, oil change, plugs, fuel filter, started her up and she won't idle & pops thru air filter.
I am assuming that when I reinstalled the TB's...
Completed vertical cylinder today only needed 2 shims on opener’s of course it would have to be on the exhaust side. I’m thinking it would be easier to pull the head then trying to get a good measurement, any thoughts? Bike has 32000 miles.
Took the bike out today for the first ride this year after I did all the winter maintenance, waited for the end of ski season (which came early), and some relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions. Started the bike, backed it out of the garage, put it in gear, and it died. Re-started and put it in gear...
