Secondly, it does not sit neatly on the dash, so one of the rubber pads is not actually in contact with the plastic, so some additional bodging reqd here also.

Thirdly, yes, the whole thing vibrates just too much. If you spend too much time tryin to focus you're more than likely to end up dead !

Fourthly, where the holder fits onto the dash adaptor, it is not scooped out, just a flat surface. Unlike the Ram mounts this is a cheap and crap method of attachment.

To sum it up, i would prefer to send the whole thing back to them with a jar of vaseline [use your imagination !]

You are right, the touratech mounts are built for the earlier models ('08 and before), I was in the same trouble to make it fit to the new dashboard.
KTM sells the right ones for the '09

'08 and earlier : Touratech mount
09 : KTM mount
