Looking for suggestions on mounting a GPS on my '98 K12RS.
PO delivered it with a dashboard - I have to say, not only did I find it unattractive, but it also made it a pain to get the key in & out of the ignition switch. I'm pretty sure anything I mounted on it that wasn't flat (like a radar detector or whatever) would block my view of the idiot lights anyway.
I picked up one of the clutch/brake reservoir cover RAM plates, but it hits the windshield - makes me think I might have an aftermarket windshield. If I left the w.s. in the "up" (or out) position all the time, it'd be OK, but I don't want to do that.
I was thinking it might be feasible to mount a flat-plate RAM ball to the handlebar plate (triple clamp? triple tree? can't remember what it's called any more); on the left side between the ignition & the left handlebar, there seems to be enough space to screw something directly to the plate. Has anybody done this? It would obviously be a permanent modification, as it'd put holes in the plate, but I don't have a problem with permanent.
Something like this, bolted straight on
Curious if anybody's done this before.
