Olive posted this pic of a Ram Mount for putting a GPS on a Brutale.

in this thread
http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=3051&page=1&pp=10&highlight=Ram+Mount

I want to use this method to mount my Garmin Zumo 550. (Currently in use on my BMW bike and Touareg SUV)

I haven't yet been able to reach him by PM so thought I'd ask the board in case someone else has relevant info or is interested in doing the same thing.

It looks like he's using this RAM-B-236-U
(RAM ball with 3/8"-16 threaded post)

(click alternative mounting and look at top item)

Does anyone know if this is what I need?

Thanks in advance

JCM

I use a clamp type ball mount but the one above looks good. I have 2 one a u bolt clamp. The other is an actual g clamp that is easy to move between bikes.

isn't that mount above PLASTIC?
it is NOT one of my favorite types of mounts at all

that 276C..... like my 376C.....
which i'd LOVE to mount on my brutale... i still have no gps on my MV
is very heavy and i'm not sure i'd trust THAT kind of mount to it

i, of course, might be wrong/i'd have to see it in person to know for sure

as you know.......... i was the one who started that original thread and STILL want gps on my 910R

My question remains- does anyone know the thread size of the screws that mount the handlebar? If they are 3/8"-16 then I can use the part listed at the top of the thread to do the GPS.

If someone here gives me an answer I promise a how-to with pics.

I like to order a ram mount for my brutale. But i currently have no real idea what the best mount for my Garmin 60csx is. There are so much solutions out there and i cannot order them all and try what is best.

Maybe someone of you has some experience to share with me.

The garmin 550 might be a bit big to mount in the middle of teh bars and nay obscure your instruments...........its much squarer than the strret piolot types

The Brutale is my only bike without a GPS

I use all the same mounts which is teh ubolt to the bars..........does wider or thinner....to the post with a ball...then the inbetween bit to accept bottom ball and ball on plate which attaches to satnav mount

you get this with the Zumo in the box

I use the Garmin Zumo. Fits easily with standard mount provided. Works great. Touch screen easy to use with gloves on. Bluetooth connection to helmet for listening to directions, mobile phone and MP3 player. Can't beat it!

This was my solution as an alternative to clamps and balls, 1/4 round stock, a couple of washers, rust oleum BBQ paint can. I used the mirror mounts since I've taken off the elephant ears that was a solid spot.:)
