Nice set up !

Hey jaybo1 what thickness ally is your cockpit bracket made out of ????
Looks about 3mm am I close??

I like the design !
I had that type of design in mind but just makes it easier to see one all set up !!

Cheers

Here's the dash on my new Adv, it's quite simple. The KTM/Touratech bar brace and the $15 handlebar mount from Garmin. It's actually a bicycle mount but with a little tube rubber wrapped around the mount it works fine soaking up the vibes and is as tight as you like.

Thanks Kelsow. I'd like to take the credit, but its clear that there are a few others with the same idea. Are you running that on bike power or gps battery? The proof if it works or not would be if it doesn't power itself off running on the internal battery.
I see you are a 'track up' guy. Arggg, the wife keeps flipping our gps's to that setting. North up rules !

Yes, but you told me about this thread.

I have mine wired directly into the bike as this GPS doesn't have an internal battery.

North up confuses me.

Thanks to this thread I finally got of my butt and made a roadbook holder that works with handguards. Full lock and GPS!
Did the factory roadbook holder work with the handguards of any year?

Not a great shot, but you'll get the idea. The TT mount holds a 60Cx at an angle you can see while seated or standing.

Is that the KTM OEM Roadbook holder? Hows does that Emig setup work?

The bracket used was designed for the roadbook. I believe I got it from ktmhutt.com The only negative about it is it limits the steering lock when using barkbusters (depending on your setup).

As far as the Emig setup goes, I have nothing but good things to say about the product & company (small family business). I ended up getting the different offset & a "Rev 1" damper (no damping back to center).

here is mine.

I use a PDA for navigation because depending of the country and the maps available, I use Tomtom, IGo or OZI software.

The problem is that the PDA is not waterproof and has no 12V supply. So I put it in a RAMTECH box, and included a Bvat-> USB power supply home made.
The king size model of RAMTECH fits perfectly the windscreen of 640Adv!

I wanted first to use a RAMTECH system to hold it to the KTM support, but it was too heavy an too big, so I made my own support.








I come back from Mongolia, and everything has been fine (at least with the dashboard)


I use also the PDA and MP3 player (not while driving, but in the camp)

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

I bought some Venhill cable kits to do my throttle cables. Bought from Ballards and you make them up to length to suit. It took a fair bit of messing around but I'm very happy with the end result.

The decompressor cable you want is KTM Part No. 58302094000. It's the decomp cable for a '93 LC4 and is longer than the cable from '03 to '07 640Adv's and goes well for length with the 25 or 30mm raised bars I have. I just fitted mine yesterday and it works a treat.
