It will probably work good, but don't let it get wet. Bring plastic bags along for the ride.

Maybe you could return it and get a Montana, then you could be on topic for the thread?

Locking Mount for Montana on KTM

Just finished my mount for my Montana. It's a locking mount to go on the dash of a KTM 950. All aluminum. Twice rubber mounted.











The locking plate covers the torx screw and release button.

Bob, like yourself I'm also a nav on the go guy. Do not tell OSHA. During a multi-day trip last summer I got so frustrated pressing the wrong screen area while on the go that I created this solution. Patent pending...works great for summer riding BTW...

Just curious: why do you need two fingers cut off? I only ever need one finger on my left hand to use my Montana when I'm on the bike. It's not like this is a CrackBerry.

Maybe the other is to clean the inside of his nose of all the dust

One for running down the road and the other for when you are at a traffic light, stopped, still in gear.

Im considering a drop of hardened jb weld on the fingertip of a glove. Just got to restrain myself long enough for it to set!

You're not worried that'll scratch the screen? If you have a screen protector it won't damage the Montana itself but I'd still be a little worried, myself.

I wouldnt think it would scratch if it is smooth, but you could be right. I did have a protector on the first one but the calibration went bad shortly after application. I returned mine and know there was a mfg issue, but I've been hesitant to put a protector back on.

I vote for using a drop of silicon instead of JB weld.
