Gadget Guy Mount

Here's some pictures of a Gadget Guy Mounting on my '02 K1200RS







And the completed project



If the tank bag isn't stuffed to the maximum I can see the Garmin screen just fine. I can also see the instruments and idiot lights too.

Here's my set-up. Although it appears to block the lights, when I'm actually in riding position, everything is visible. Works Great!

I use the K-mount stalk with a plit platform. One side has the Garmin 2610 motorcycle mount, the other side is an extra-wide platform for the radar detector and SunPass (FL Turnpike tolls). Works well, minimal vibrations.

iQue setup

Heres mine > an iQue 3600 on GadgetGuy mount. And a link to some more views of the actual mount -> http://tinyurl.com/8nam2

I have a powerlet up front that runs via a powerlet cable back into the tankbag to power the gps and phone.

GPS V w/ Touratech

Here's my setup on my 2004 GT. When I bought the bike I asked MAX BMW to wire and install a mount for my GPS V. Silly me, I just told them to pick something out for me. I never even looked into the various types of mounts but I was VERY pleased with what they chose. It's a Touratech mount and keeps things really clean with everything still in view.

The GPS V has been great but I'm looking to upgrade to a 2610 or 376C. I will probably go with another Touratech mount.

That's also the Avant Guard radar mount with a Solo 2 and I've also got the fairing compartments. It all works very well for me.

Hi Pete,
Today I took some photo's of the setup on my K12RS. It uses a simple twin ball mount (RAM), that can be placed low or higher, if a full tankbag is placed on the tank.
I am especially pleased with the 12 Volt soccet, that my dealer placed on the brace underneath the instrument panel, in a hole that was alreagy there. Pretty neat!

As far as the Garmin 2610 is concerned: terrific instrument, especially with the Navtec (Mapsource) PC software, that lets you make elaborate routes on your PC. A simple (USB) download to the Garmin and off you go into the wild blue yonder.

Now I I have resized them.
Hope it works this time!

I use the RAM setup for both my Garmin 2610 and radar...I mounted an accessory plug in the fairing bracket from Powerlet and when I get to where I want to be I unplug the shortened Garmin cord, unclamp the whole thing in 1 piece and I don't have a big bracket to look at...........

My $5.00 Mount From Home Depot

Wish I was as rich as some of you... but I've learned to be thrifty over the years. I formed my GPS mount out of 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum bar, bolted it to the fork caps and added a 1/16" thick mounting plate for the 2610 base.

I used crown nuts on the inverted bolts to keep it neat looking. A small, drilled hole allows the use of a padlock to keep the Garmin base in the "locked" position and curious hands from walking off with it.

The GPS still swivels, and tilts back and forth as desired, and is low enough when you're seated that it does not interfere with seeing the warning lights.
