handlebar diameter satnav mount
on: August 11, 2013, 05:38:46 PM
Could someone tell me what the bar diameter between the riser clamps is, I need to order a ram mount for my satnav but don't collect the bike for a few days yet. Thanks.

 :152: thanks, that was quick! Any views on the preferred mounting for a Zumo 660? On the Viffer FD I just used a stem hole ram mount and it worked fine (no its not a Kamasutra thing), I'm looking at a simple ram ball clamped to the middle of the bars.

I don't like looking down for the sat-nav so have my zumo mounted above the clocks on a 'migsel' bracket and RAM ball but to be honest although it looks good it wobbles about far too much.

There are probably a few better mounts out now so wait for others to reply to your post or try the 'search' function.

PS. didn't your 660 come with a powered mount and RAM bracket? (mine did)

I have a spare set-up but don't really want to sell it as I might need it for another bike

Yes, I may end up using it but I was looking for a more substantial bracket.

A search on touratech came up with this page http://shop.touratech.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=zumo+660 but you'll pay for the better stuff :110:

Funnily enough I was just looking at that site. Nice kit but they know how to charge for it. May be I'll stick with bracket supplied with the Zumo.

Yes Touratech is premium priced but as usual it is very good, i bought their lockable mount for my 660 and it is excellent, solid and no vibration.
