Definitely keep the bike.

Interested as well. Read this happening to another and scratched up his guages. Another I talked to didn't have a failure but also hardmounted the front holes vs just having them "ride" on the bodywork. He was using a 376 type GPS. Considering a Montana to avoid all the weight as far out as it is with the locking mount. The first guy didn't mention asking Touratech about this...have you?

I have ordered TT mount 065-0087 and TT adapter 040-0659 for 276c on new '12 990. The folks at Touratech assured me they had no knowledge of problems with the adapter for the 990. But like you, I have seen other posts on here showing broken or loose adapter brackets, and I will be very careful to mount this thing very securely to the dash.
Reason for new mounting system and bike here:
Hey, how do you like the Great Basin? Noticed you're using one..
*that's irony, folks- glad you're OK, looks like a nasty fall*
I saw this for sale, looked like a great deal.
Big day for my new to me 990. Added R suspension, Rekluse clutch and Rottweiler air intake with stacks
Did you convert your existing, or get a different setup?
It's unfortunatly the end of the season here.
Winter is coming !
So today, I cleaned the bike and I put a little Orange color on the sled
One of my pet peeves... out riding, get a flat, fix the flat, now tire is out of balance and the bike shakes when at speed - especially annoying if the tire is relatively new as it is a PITA to take the wheel off the bike and to the shop just for a re-balance.
...or you throw some knobs
...or the tire changes balance as it wears
Finally got around to picking up a balancer/truing stand
NICE SuperSproX sprocket.
I certainly love mine.
You can mark (index) the tire to the rim before dismounting, and then return it to the same place after repair.
Might dodge the rebalance.
after changing the seat and the tank..the bike feels SOOOOO much better on the corners
You are certainly more OCD than I am, and I'm pretty bad, but if the knobs are still on the tire and the tire on the bike I'm happy. I can't tell the difference between a balanced 908 and an unbalanced 908.
Picked up my wheel from Woody's. No more wobble-wobble
Ordered me up some K&N oil filters from CJ... then did a little 120 mile loop with a little pit stop to check out the Hayman Burn area near Cheesman Lake...
Then did about 20 some-odd miles of "noob dirt" on CO 67 (between Deckers, CO and US-285)... having too much fun to stop and take pix.
Nice ride...think I would have held on to her
This is really just a test to see if I can post a picture...
Added a set of Zega Pro panniers.
Nice parking spot. Oh and good looking cases.
