Satnav Brackets

I have received a few more brackets, which have all been allocated and I have asked for few more for the next aluminium pouring at the foundry in about a month. If you would like to be added to the list of those waiting I will endeavour to get brackets to you as soon as I can.

Please contact me if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

These brackets look good. I have dropped you a PM to be added to the list if that's OK

Cheers

They are good - Im a muppet when it comes to bike mechanics, yet a bit of work with fine files, a Lidl Dremmel rip-off, 2000 grit and some Solvol had the casting looking rather nice. Perfect fit and solid mounting using the suggested size of fastener.

I ordered these.........

Bolt on RAM mounts are surprisingly expensive - I used one of those kits that replaces one of the handlebar clamp bolts - it had various M8 stainless bolts so just cut one down to size - simples.

After cleaning up the casting I decided to drill and tap the end fixings with M6 threads and the RAM mount with a M8 thread, finishing all the parts in satin black.

This, for me, has the advantage of being able to fit and remove the mount assy without having to remove the screen as I may not want to have it installed all the time.

Yet to fix it to the bike.

I got my mount from here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Ram-Mount-RAM-B-367U-Motorcycle-Bike-Handlebar-Clamp-Base-Rubber-Ball-ras/312258939177?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
