Installation of Garmin Montana 600 using RAM mount on KTM 990 2011
I just wanted to share how I installed my Garmin Montana 600 using a RAM mount on my KTM 990 ADV Dakar. I recon there cant really be to much info on these things on the forum... I appreciate input on how well I have performed (that is, if my construction will manage the force applied to the plastic).
I bought the Montana 600 and the Motorcycle/ATV Mount with Integrated Cables for power supply. I also bought a RAM mount. To attach the RAM mount to the bike I used a piece of ironwork.
1. I removed the light and wind-shield.
2. I located the ACC2 power supply and made sure that it shut off when turning off the bike (I´ve read in a few posts that ACC2 might be wronly marked as ACC1 so I reconed this was a nice thing to test). I pulled back the shielding rubber and attached the red wire to the panel which then continue with a red/black wire. The black wire from the mount was connected to the panel that continue with a brown wire.
3. I made appropriate holes in the plastic where the RAM mount is attached to the piece of ironwork. I then attached the RAM mount to the piece of ironwork.
4. I taped the wires as I apparently had run out of cable ties . You can see this solution in the first picture under 2.
The final result can be seen in the pictures below:
I have some thought of my contruction not being solid enough. That I should really have attached the RAM mount to the metal frame behind the lights. If I notice that this solution cant handle the stress, i will try to mount the existing piece of ironwork to the metal frame also seen in the first picture.
I will also "hide" the cable from the mount. Havent had the time to do that yet.
Thank you for reading,
