Sat Nav Location
« on: September 08, 2017, 04:36:20 PM »
I have just fitted my Bagster tank cover .and my old tank bag , no problem, thing is I have the Kawasaki sat nav bracket fit from new by the dealer for the touring, with my tank bag on it obscures my Garmin  a bit , and I really need to point the screen down over to keep the sun off it ,anyone fit the  nav in a different place, I made a new bracket and lifted the original mount up 50 mm , but this made the mount to leggy , it would flex.

Boom...I like that Roger  :062:

I have mine in the usual central place but would prefer it to one side like my old naked FZ1 but alas I have tried and can't find anything off the shelf to cater for it  :003:

Well done on the DIY skills  :047:

The Sat-Nav (Ebay £12.00)Discarded the W/screen mount but kept the Cradle which clicks on the sat nav case,Drilled this 6mm using countersunk set-screw,Made up a bracket mounted on the l/h fork leg clamp bolt..Bent the bracket to the position I wanted..Drilled it to accept the 6mm screw from the cradle,Using the external sat nav speaker outlet wired it to my Autocom.
