Interested as well. Read this happening to another and scratched up his guages. Another I talked to didn't have a failure but also hardmounted the front holes vs just having them "ride" on the bodywork. He was using a 376 type GPS. Considering a Montana to avoid all the weight as far out as it is with the locking mount. The first guy didn't mention asking Touratech about this...have you?

I have ordered TT mount 065-0087 and TT adapter 040-0659 for 276c on new '12 990. The folks at Touratech assured me they had no knowledge of problems with the adapter for the 990. But like you, I have seen other posts on here showing broken or loose adapter brackets, and I will be very careful to mount this thing very securely to the dash.
