Sat Nov mounting

Post by Rog » Wed May 16, 2018 5:19 am

I want to mount a Garmin Zumo onto my Burgman 400 K7, as the handlebars have plastic covers. Where is the best place to mount it? Are there any specific mounts for the scooter?

Someone was selling a mount for a Silverwing. I don't know if it would fit. I got one of these and a waterproof case. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Honda-FE ... 4d3a54bc01

On my Burger it was just clamped to the mirror in one of those cases
but later out in the open on a cheepo mount.

There was a custom made mount for the burgman ( I owned one) it went on the stockhead bolts same as the silverwing.

Paid silly money for it got zilch back when I sold it. I like the brake reservoir mounts but have had issue with the weight causing leaks.

Oxford make a strap- nav case Velcro fastens means you can use car sat navs (which are cheap 2nd hand) so I leave it on & it gets nicked no great loss unlike bike purpose ones.
I'm going there,but I like it here,wherever it is

I made a mount to bolt on top of the brake fluid reservoir,no problem with any leaks,made one for other side to clamp cheap phone holder bought recently from Aldi.I have a lathe which made it easy to make the spherical/ball

I have one of those cases and it's ok but I can't operate the buttons at the bottom and have to take it out. So long as I know the postcode, it's fine.

I've had issues too, my Garmin Zūmo, locking Touratec sat nav cradle, and lockable RAM arm together weigh in at around 2lbs or more. It's too much weight for the screws on the brake reservoir and it loosens the reservoir lid off. So you have to stop and tighten the screws up again and again. It happened when I used this set up on a trip to Germany about three years ago, I made a temporary fix with some zip ties and electrical tape. When I got back home I reverted back to the centrally mounted RAM Ball on the handlebars.

I have a Burgman 400. I used the Ram bolt that is designed to fit on the brake reservoir - rock solid
