KTM 640A owners, lets see your dash

I put a deposit on the last 07 640A at the dealership today. I've been reading the threads on the bike and it looks like suspension will be the first mod of the spring.
I'd like to see how you guys have mounted GPS's/roadbooks and the rest. That space above the cluster looks perfect for my Garmin Quest but how do you mount it there?
Pics would be great so I can decide how to proceed.
Heres a shot of my new toy.
Don't worry it'll never be that clean again.

Thanks Seikkailu_R thats exactly the type of set up I was looking for. The TT piece was waaaaay to much for my tastes.

Thanks for the compliments on the new toy. I can't wait for spring now. Good thing they are holding it at the dealer till then or I'd be sleeping in the garage.

This rocks - I just got the same carrier for a roadbook and quest GPS.. Never thought of using the extra space to carry a pouch like that - it would be real easy to fold up some tubes/patches and the like - just in case...

Thanks

oops!

Sorry, I asked the wrong question(I'm under the influence of small children)
What I meant to ask was, what wall thickness is the tubing?
Thanks again, Nick

I think I've just about got the cockpit of my 640 how I want it now. A Scott steering damper, mated to a Stenhouse Racing mount, to keep the plot straight and add an extra 20mm raise to the bars. I got new throttle and decompressor cables 50mm longer from Venhill, they weren't absolutely necessary, but I was able to route them better than the standard ones. Cycra handguards, with the U-mountings to allow me to have the levers set lower, and provide much needed crash protection. A roadbook holder from Acerbis, fastened to a stainless steel bracket made by a local fabricator to avoid the bars hitting it, as the KTM part does. (He has kept the pattern, if anyone else wants one). ProGrip handgrips, as I can't get on with the foam ones it came with, far too fat for my liking. I tried various methods for positioning the GPS, but none of them worked particularly well. A Malcolm Smith bracket from the handlebar bolts was fine, until I compressed the forks and the brake hose tried to rip the aerial off. Mounting it under the roadbook obscures the clocks, unless I lift the roadbook up, which puts it too far above the fairing. Without completely rearranging the dash, I settled on the faithful Ram Mount, with a Touratech bracket, very soon to be powered from an extra socket on the dash.
Big thanks to Colin Stenhouse, off this site, for his assistance with getting the right parts.

mmmm! any chance of passing on the part numbers and the source... do they do esales?

I really need some extra rise to help my poor old back!... the only thing stopping me is I've run out of cable length with Colin's damper mount and riser kit....

would really appreciate the info - cheers
