Saw this very nice 2013 I'm the Shops at Legacy, in Plano, this morning. Looks really nice and the plate is AWESOME.

Borrowed the idea from another inmate. Very easy, just measure and drill holes in some flat stock, nut, bolt, washers, paint it to look nice. Once everything is tightened down it locks in the entire dash set up. No more vibrations.

You have one?
With the 21" Woody on the front it need to be close to the filter and as far away from the tire or it's going to snag at full shock compression, not that I plan on riding like Danny Magoo Chandler on it.

Thanks! I was definitely overthinking it.

Fwiw, the Tobinator screen adjuster doesn't shake/vibrate at all. No need to add reinforcement...

The vibration isn't coming from the bracket, it's coming from supporting a bracket, GPS, GPS mount, and oversized windscreen on the 2 OEM plastic tabs coming out of the fairing. Thin strips of plastic wiggle, when you're goin down a gravel road more so. Any of the brackets that use the OEM windscreen mounting location will have the same issue. I'd say the only variable here is how much it effects the rider.

That makes sense. I don't hang my GPS from my windshield, a lot of weight and I don't like stuff blocking my view of the road.

Laugh Windshield brackets, GPS mounts, wiggling, etc...

That's why my GPS mount is TechMount off the center of the handlebars. Not only does it preclude any of the problems mentioned, it puts it closer to me for easier access to the screen prompts, etc., and the way I have it set up it lines up in my sight just below the bike's instrument display... so I see the GPS at the same time I ever glance down at the instruments.

As strong as those plastic screen uprights on the Super Tenere I don't imagine Yamaha intended them to carry all sorts of excess loads like GPS's and the like. I figure the Parabellum medium windscreen is about all the extra loading I want on those windscreen mounts.

Just my two centavos... YMMV.

Same position for the same reasons, only using a Ram mount.
