High Screen

Here are some pictures of the factory fitted high screen on my GT. A few people have asked to see it.

Also I have fitted my GPS using a Ram mount attached to the handlebar adjustment bolt. Cheap, easy and it gets the GPS exactly where I want it

High Screen

Does the GPS get in the way of the ignition key?

There is no problem getting to the ignition key. The RAM mount has quite a range of positions where it can fit. See this more detailed picture.

Tom, thanks for the pictures. Lookin good!

There seems to be one accessory socket standard, but two punchouts for additional ones right next to it. They are clustered on the side of the bike. At least that's what I observed when eyeing up a demo yesterday. If I remember correctly, it was on the left side of the bike.

Correcto! One on the left side and one "potential" immediately to the right of it. It is located just forward of the left saddle bag at about calf height.

This is VERY easy to achieve. The battery compartment is at the front of the bike just infront of the fuel filler cap and is accessed by removing two torx screws. Just take a fused connection from here directly from the battery into the tank bag or better still into the lockable glove box on the right of the fairing.

Greg,

Since the battery is where it is (right in front of the gas cap cover), it would be very easy to wire directly to the battery. I ordered a Centech AP-1 fuse panel - www.centech.com and will use it for power. Because of the CAN-BUS system, you can't really wire it that. I guess you could wire to the back of a accessory socket (1 comes standard, and there are places for 2 additional), but I've heard stories from GS and RT riders who have had problem with the electrical draw causing a fault when using that method. So I've elected to go straight to the battery.

I talked to Cee Bailey's today. They are checking to see if the R1200RT screen has the same mount as the new K1200GT. If so, they already have a solution that is customizable (up to 7 inches higher and 7 inches wider) and has the laminar flow flip.
