08 GT: Using the mirror holes to mount devices
I hope to pull the trigger this week on a 2008 K12GT (moving up from an '05 R1200ST). I intend to carry all my gadgets over to the ST (V1, SkyFi2, Zumo). I think I've got the Zumo figured out; I read about a $28 BMW part that will enable a Zumo to be mounted in between the handlebars. If that doesn't work I will probably go with a Gadget Guy mount like the one I've been using on the ST. So far so good.
With respect to the XM and V1, I've used the RAM system in the past and liked it. I'd prefer to use the empty mirror mounting holes.
Has anyone tried this? I was thinking of ordering the RAM ball with the threaded hole on the underside (like a RAM-B-273-M6U) and running a long bolt through the mirror hole with a nut/washer or spacer on the bottom.
Any thoughts/input appreciated.
