Mounting GPS on an old K100 RS

I have an 85 K100RS and would like to mount my Garmin 60 series.

The RAM website doesn't have anything speced for this old bike. The style that uses the mount to the handlebar won't work as the padded switch area doesn't expose enough bar to mount their u- bolt.

Anyone else already solve this problem?

"What follows is based on actual occurrences. Although much has been changed for rhetorical purposes, it must be regarded in its essence as fact. However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."

You sure do have a problem there alright. Try contacting the people from They have much more stock than what they show on their web page.

Good luck
