    So my new 990 came with the Zumo 665 and a RAM mount for the handlebars which works pretty good but I'm doing some other things in that area and would like a mount to place just above the guages, on the windshield platform area. Not interested in an expensive, locking Tourtech type but really just looking for a simple mount that I can bolt to the top of that platform, use my existing Unit Mount that supplies power and mount that to a simple yet sturdy mount.

    I read through as many threads in this forum as possible but couldn't find any smple solutions.

    Thoughts from the A Team of think tank engineers?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I am looking for the same solution for 800gs that has a Mirage 2 fairing. I have the 665 on the Ram mount but I want to mount it up on the area of the fairing above the gauges. It looks like I have to drill a whole and move some wires but I just need a way to mount the back of the original mount on the fairing.

    Appreciate the links but if one did not want the Touratech system but rather a simple, low profile mount for the winshield area (see below) are there any issues anyone knows of with mounting the RAM ball up there?

    This will give you a 1/2" mount bar.

    You can use a RAM RAP-319 handle bar mount adapter and RAM mounts.
