Mounting a GPS on your Brutale.....

a long while back this question was asked.
i'm wondering who has a GPS on his/her Brutale?
if so:
1. which one
2. how was it mounted
3. do you have a picture we could see, please

my dealer has suggested mounting a handlebar clamp on one of the mirrors
because there is little handlebar space on the bike and i don't want to hid the clocks

any thoughts?

thanks in advance

Here I am,

In fact, I have a Garmin 276C wich is fixed on my brutale by a "RAM MOUNT" system.

A ball welded on a screw replace one of the factory screws who fixed the handelbar.

But.... just look the pics.

I use this system for years now on all bikes and I find it perfect. No vibrations, easy to fix and release, etc.

Hope this help.

Yes, 276 and 376 have exactly the same dimensions. I say welded, but the piece is sell by "Ram Mount" ready to fit to the bike. It's easy.

I forgot to say that there is no problem to read all instruments.

I use a quick release clamp from Tourtech the the arm ets as above on my tomtom. It is difficult to use as it is said above not only is there little hamdlebar space it is also tapered. It can be done near the clutch or brake levers just enough room. THe welded ball is a good idea. I have clamped the clamp to the mirrors on both the Brut and the Gran canyon for videoing the clamp holds the bullet camera nicely. THis worked extremely well and showed no vibration or wobble.

I have just got a Rider but this doesn't have the balls (well big enough one) for the Tourtech/RAM mount so I will have to modify it somehow.

I found this mount in the back of a dirtbike magazine about five years ago for my KTM and it swaped right over. Btw you can see my gear shift indicator that i attached with a piece of L shaped plastic and two piece of doble side stick tape.
