    Thanks! Happy with the way it has come together. Really enjoying my 790. Can't wait for the NEBDR release. Anticipating that trip is getting me through the cold winter so far...

    That looks awesome! I may have to get off my lazy butt and put a GPS on my 790R now.

    Nice!

    Because of the stress from cantilevering, can you 3D print another part which drops down lower below that metal insert which allows a bolt to be insert directly through the OEM GPS mount? That would improve structural integrity I'd think so a heavier GPS/Nav unit wouldn't snap it and your mount off the OEM's plastic portion. What are your thoughts on that sort of thing?

    My plans are to mount a 10" Samsung Active Pro tablet. Right now I mount it off the bars with a short RAM arm and C sized balls. ;)

    But in a perfect world I would relocate the TFT to the bars, and use something like your articulating mount to house the Pro tablet for a more forward, and vertical display.

    Let me play with that a bit. Based on the ~1000 miles I did with the prototype this fall and early winter, I don't think there is much stress there with my setup, but of course a larger or heavier GPS would place more stress on the mount base. The 360 degree mating surface of the joint between the stock GPS cover and the pylon it sits in really seem to distribute the load well. It is a pretty tight and solid fit, but there is always room for improvement.

    That said, I like your idea. I am now thinking about an enlarged base plate with a set of ears that would extend along the two mounting tabs and replace the threaded clips. That would add rigidity and allow us to cinch the mount down a few thousandths at the same time.

    I will see if I can get a prototype this week.
    Thanks!

    Beautiful. The ears approach, I believe, I've seen guys doing with their own home brew designs. Anything to integrate the pylon mounting down into the OEM setup. The 10" tablet is 1.44 lbs so it may be beefy in comparison to a regular GPS. Add 1.3 lbs for this mount: https://www.gamberjohnson.com/products/samsung-galaxy-tab-active-pro-docking-station-bare-wire-lead

    Thanks for considering this!

    NP. I think it is a great enhancement for heavy off road use.

    I love this community. Huge amounts of experience and use cases allow quick product improvements.

    Keep us informed of your version 2.0.
    I know I will want one.
    How can I get one shipped to Canada?

    We ship to Canada daily. No worries there. Can do it via First Class International or USPS Priority Mail International depending on the speed you want. I can get you exact postage cost when you are ready. The packages via USPS seem to avoid import duty vs Fedex or UPS.

    Batch of the stiffeners nearly done.

    One has gone out to California for evaluation. My testing on my 790 was excellent.

    That’s a great solution!
    So still uses OEM cover.
    Has the price changed?

    Yes, still uses the OEM cover. Tight fit, zero flex or shake.

    The price should change, and probably will on my website, but I am not going to change it here. Use the purchase button in the first post of the thread.

    Thanks to @TrailTrauma and others for the suggestions -- we have made an update to the MotoPumps Articulating GPS Mount for the KTM 790 Adventure series.

    New brace that utilizes the stock GPS cover, but replaces the screw clips with a billet 6061 machined piece that stabilizes and snugs down the entire unit.

    The mounting holes are offset a few thou to pull the whole unit down snug on the headlight pylon.

    Zero movement when mounted. Very rigid.

    Thanks for the feedback. All the kits are shipping this way now.

    From a GPS Mount user in Cali testing the new brace:



    Hey Rob,
    Installed the new block, had to push down to get the screws to line up once everything was together and remounting to the bike, but it was perfect because it drew the whole GPS mount down into the bike receiver. The fix is perfect. On the highway it does not vibrate at all, and after doing some serious off-road with long bumpy road with potholes it had very minimal vibrating, totally acceptable. Did some big whoops and got some air on some jumps and some small wheelies, and the whole mount worked great. Nice work Rob, you nailed it.
    Thanks again for the followup and extra mile to make sure your product was up the task. Greatly appreciated, and I look forward to seeing more products from you.

    Cheers,
    Don
