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.

Finally was able to get pics on my installation. AMPS with the Ram screwed to the stock holes in the triple clamp.

Montana Mount

Ram mounts with Garmin Rugged Mount. I like mine on the left side for easier access with my left hand. I switch my Montana back and forth between my 990/950 and my 300 2 stroke. This mount setup has worked very well for me and has proven very durable through a lot of very rough use.

FWIW

You mean these covered holes are threaded? and fit exactly with the two bolts RAM mount?

Yup,,,, pry out the plastic plugs and they ahve threads. The holes are ust a tad closer together than the RAM holes but with a Dremel or file they work out perfect.

Here is how I chose to mount my Zumo 550. I mounted it in 2005 and have had no problems with it.



To mount the Montana the same way you will need the following parts:
These are all Touratech part numbers:

Toutatech 950/990 mounting adapter # 040-06632 $75.20
Garmin Montana mount and power cable # G 11654 $37.99
Touratech locking mount # 065-0600 $184.90

These are the only parts needed to install your gps onto your bike.

The locking feature is a must if you don't want to pull the gps off every time you stop for lunch.

I hooked the power to the accessory power under the dash that is on regardless of the key position. I don't like the gps switching off every time I shut off the bike.

The ram mounts work good but look like an add on instead of something that was made for the bike. Personal preference!

Having it mounted above the speedo looks nice, but you can get a little GPS fixation with it up there. That is why I like down a little lower. I really like Boatman's mount - considering putting it there myself.

A couple points.... the AMPS and Ram are $62 from GPS City. It comes with a short Ram arm but I'm sure GPS City can swap for a longer arm if you want it higher.

The AMPS mount has a security screw to lock it in place. I've never used it,,, whenI need to take the gps with me,,, press the button and it's out in less than a second. Pops back in in the same amount of time.

I'm still using my 60Cx on the Super Enduro because I have the Scotts triples and there are no mounting holes. But I have an idea to make a simple bracket that will bolt on to where the ignition switch bots up and hold the Ram mount.
