Question How to install a Garmin montana 650 on a KTM 950 adventure?

Im about to install a Garmin montana 650 in my KTM 950 Adventure 2004 model.

I only have the GPS, so I need all the mounting devices!

But I really cant find out what I need?!

Touratech makes a mount that can be locked but they dont write what part that is needed to mount the mount?!

I want the GPS just behind the windscreen. I would prefer that the GOS is mounted vertical.

So can anyone tell me which parts I need to buy so I can get the montana mounted?

Thx

I mounted my Zumo like this http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...7&postcount=63

Could work the same for a Montana. There are lots of threads on this...

I just installed my 600 by using the existing two mounting holes where the previous owner had a TT bracket mounted. I made up a small aluminum plate and mounted it to the dash, drilled and tapped for this ball- http://www.rammount.com/CatalogResul...5/Default.aspx

Used a short Ram arm connected to the Garmin power mount for the 600 series- http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-montan...ike-mount.html

This is nice because it hard wires to your electrical system for power supply. You'll also need to but the ball for the back of this mount. Look on the Rammount.com site or call them and let them know what part you're looking for.

Pretty clean set up and way cheaper than TT's system

Sorry but I don't have any photo's of the set up.

AMPS cradle with the RAM mount. If you have the stock triple clamps you can bolt it to the two stck holes right.in front of the bars. You will need to file the mount a bit to make the screws fit. This puts the gps right in the perfect spot. Wire the power to the accessory wires behind the headlight.

Sorry I don't have pics... my bike is in a different state than me right now.

Just stumbled across this thread...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...4#post21268094

They have a couple discount codes in the thread,,,, one for RAM mounts and another for a smoking deal on the Montana bundle.

I used the KTM mount that goes above the dash. Instead of buying the expensive TT mount o go with it, I just bolted the AMPS rugged mount to a small 1/8" aluminum plate, and secured it to the mount with U-bolts. I also used some vacuum line to take up some space between the mount bar and the U-bolts.

Probably not ideal, but I works.

I am about half way ion to installing the Garmin marine type mount on the dash. It uses the same cradle as most but includes the base. It appears to be strong enough, but time will tell. I should be able to post pics and install tomorrow.

Here is a picture from the bat as I installed the mount. I am thinking I may need to build a bracket to support it from the bottom, but currently it does feel pretty stable.


Here is what the finished product looks like today.



I will hopefully get to test this out next weekend.

The positioning looks great.

However I would argue the supporting plate is way too thin.
Cheers.

I'm more worried about the plastic dash than the metal. It is a pretty heavy gauge steel, but does look tin in the picture. My biggest concern is the screw holding the base down, I may add some thread lock to it.
