    GPS City has it all and pretty much the best prices, too.

    I have it mounted on the bars with a standard/universal mount. It is on the left hand side right off the clutch lever perch. I don't have any pics but it is easy too see in most light, I think the illumination button is a bit awkward form there and it also stays put there. Just my 2 cents.

    Here are pictures of two homemade mounts made of Kydex, a heat-deformable thermo-plastic. You can buy it on eBay in white, black, and blue, and red from several companies that sell knife and gun holster kits.

    On my CRF230F; this is my Summit, but I modified the mount when I got the HCx:
