I got lucky with the size of the stopper being just right.

Here it is with the guard in place:


See how a rock could snake its way in there and jam up the brake pedal?

Had to shave a little off the length.

No more rock catcher. Fits snugly but not so tight that it wouldn't come out with a knife.


Very nice. Now I know what I'm doing today.

Never would work on the tenere. Most of us came off of KLR's and Vstrom's, so cheap is a language we speak fluently.

It's fine... Garmin Zumo 600

I did have a little trouble with it losing Blue Tooth connectivity to my headset, but I think that is more a problem with the headset than the GPS.
