Mounts for Radar, GPS , Phone on My '03 K1200rs
Nice pics on the gallery. How did you mount the radar detector? Looks good from the posted view. I currently use a Valentine mount that is a single stalk, but I use a X50 instead of the Valentine. Looks good, but it blocks my low gas warning light. What type of mounts on the phone and GPS? Nice, clean look. I like the Z2214 too. I guess I'll probably add a forth shield to my inventory.
The Magellan GPS (non turn by turn model) is mounted using a RAM ball, on their 40 (degee angle one piece unit) by using a longer screw into the pivot stop factor bars....not sure if these were standard, but I bought the bike with 2,500 miles. When I don't need the GPS, and want a clean view, I use the factory screw and stow the GPS. The radar mount was made by shaping a piece of redwood, or cedar wood, using velcro on the bottom of the wood and attaches to the concave tupperware. The radar unit then velcro's to the mounting piece. If it rains, I stow the detector. Phone bracket is like the RAM ball mount in that it attaches underneath to the same bar pivot hold. The aluminum pieces were made from an old Radio Shack cell phone underdash mount for the receiver. The bench grinder did all the work.
Thanks for the kind words.....I too like the clean look. The phone mound also doubles as the holder for the I-Pass thing.
