Kinda like this http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/P...FcODQgodIxoARQ

Only done with the KLR mentality. I just used a couple peices of angle and some tube
stock to make the mount. Garmin GPS mount bolted to that.

Somewhere there is a post with more detail that maybe Dallara could find for you.

Techmount...

~


I went the quick and easy route to put my GPs in the same place and got a "Techmount" - http://www.techmounts.com/






Simple to install and adjust, and solid in operation. I use it as shown, with the short stalk, when I'm not using my tank bag, and I carry one of their longer stalks under the seat in a little plastic zip baggie with a couple of the appropriate allen wrenches. That way when I want to use my tank bag I just quickly mount up the longer stalk. Takes all of two minutes, max.

Just FYI...


Dallara

It is a T50, i just bought one today to remove the pannier mount and it does fit.

Thank you, BHK.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. Being the imbecile that I am, I thought I had a T-45 and T-50. As it turns-out, I had a T-45 and T-55.

It wouldn't be me unless I had everything, except what I actually needed. Story of my life.


Thanks again for the response.

On the contrary, I did that recently. But I don't think it's very likely to be done with the pannier mounted.

Does anyone think the security bolts are necessary? I don't think it would be very easy to remove the bolts with the panniers on and if the panniers are off, who'd bother?

I'll be damned! You were able to get some grip on those button bolts? I thought it'd be pretty tough.

I put blue Permatex on both of the tamper-resistant bolts. So, someone might be able to get 'em. But, it's gonna' take a little time and strength (I would think).

Those were my thoughts, exactly.

There's a hardware store, down the road, that has a great selection of metric stuff. But, I chose just to use the supplied bolts, as I had already run outta' patience, and just wanted to get the damn things on.

Why only one bolt with the weird head?

Got mine off with a set of multi grips to fit a tool box.

Bought a set of proper keys to tighten it back up on refitting.

(After I wire buffed all the marks form the multi grips)

Also has a bag in front so you can really forget where you put stuff.


+1 Stays in place very well. Undo the front snaps and slide it back onto the seat for fueling.
