The idea of the photo gallery is to post the picture(s) in the body of the reply.
To do so, make sure you're in thumbnail mode, and select the picture(s) by clicking SELECT in the box in the top right corner of the picture(s).
Then, click on Action -> Get embed codes (top right of window).
When you hover over the bottom box containing the image URLs, COPY will appear - click on it.
You can then paste the embed codes into your post.

Ive made a mount for the 2018 Tigers XRX, XRT, XCX, XCA, but it wont fit the base model XR.

Its on eBay for 45 but if you want one I can do it for 40 posted in UK. Cant upload images so the item number for ebay is 192603791793. Have a look and if its something youre interested in, fire a mail at me Nikwill26514@gmail.com.

If used with a Ram clamp it wont hinder screen movement either.


Looks good, will you charge us a bit less if we collect from you?

I have just sold my Vstrom and got myself a 2018 XCA and now working on how to fit my satNav. I could not find a fitting to suit my needs, so I am currently working on my own version. I have a 3D printer and I have been using that for prototyping. It will be too fragile for long term use, but in the short term it works fine as the pictures show





I have found a foundry nearby and they have agreed to cast an aluminium version. So I have spent the weekend making a pattern using my 3D printer, glue and filler so that he can make me some blanks that I can drill and paint. I am a retired engineer and enjoy making things as well as biking, so this fulfills two of my joys.

The down side of the design it uses the bottom of the screen bracket, so I will lose some adjustment, but I am tall, so I do not need to move it down and I am looking to get a bigger screen sometime soon anyway. It fits RAM mounts, secured with a couple of screws and should look pretty smart and much better than my cobbled together prototype. I will post the finished article if anyone is interested.

I think handlebar mounts for SatNavs are wrong for many reasons.

What do other people think.

That looks to be a very good solution, but I think it is using too many screen slots - 2 if I am viewing the pics correctly.
A lot of us have cobbled together a mount that uses the lowest screen slot.
If you can use just the one screen slot, you have a winner.
Any idea on price from the foundry?

Hi - Thanks for your comment - The first models will mimic the 3d printing without the additional extra strengtheners either side of the Ram mount . I have to print in two halves as the printer only has 150mm print area. You can see the joint in my photo. I am sure the wings could be made a little smaller if screen needs the 2nd slot. But I am unsure why anyone would need that unless they have lowered the bike and then I am sure their torso would be taller than a need for the screen at the lower level.
But until I have got the first blanks from the foundry I cannot determine if my design actually needs the second slot space. I am finishing the pattern at the moment and want to keep it much the same dimensions as the prototype. I am sure the fixing  holes could be elongated to reduce the height and intrusion, but got to get a blank to play with to see if ideas match reality. Probably able to reduce the bulk as well if made of metal. But not sure it is worth the effort - it looks the part and it will be pretty strong. And not sure it would make much difference to the cost of each blank. And it will take at least couple of full days to manufacture a new pattern.
I am looking intially at around 20 for an unfinished blank. Three holes and finish needs to be undertake. Considering paint or anodise. My pattern will be much smoother finish than the prototype. A finished item less screws and ram ball would probably double the base price. If that was what people want.
Mk1 will probably have 5 blanks produced. Not interested in commercial production, this is my hobby. So dependant on how this goes it will give me the chance of taking one or two for my bike and 2 or more if others are interested. Not even thought about making any MK2 or changing my design, will see how the MK1 blanks turn out

Hi

I bought one of these from ebay, only 20 and works perfectly, credit to the guy who makes them himself (adam1968laura1969)

Fitting is dead easy, fits over existing mounts and sits in a good spot above the clocks.  :028:

 










Cheers, Paul

But does it fit the 2018 model with its sliding screen?

Not sure bud, it attaches where the speedo is mounted on my bike (2010 mark 1 i believe) - no modification needed or screen probs on mine
