Hopefully the weather will still be good Wednesday when I've finished current work block and I can get it fitted. :017:

Well, a week later than hoped but in decent sunshine fitted my new bracket this afternoon.  :028:

Zumo 390 as fitted to standard XRt supplied handlebar bracket .


. and relocated on new bracket .



though wasn't the plain sailing I expected. The hole in the bracket wasn't quite big enough to allow the power connector to fit through and as 13mm is the biggest drill bit my drill can take I had to resort to a round file and enlarge the hole and touch back up with a dab of black paint.
Still needs a tweak as the position of the power box tight against the air filter snorkel gave enough power cable that everything was fine lock to lock but when I finally parked the bike on sidestand with steering lock on I noticed that the cable then became taught (so currently parked with steering straight). Hopefully I'll find somewhere easy to move the box forward a couple of inches but don't ideally want to put it against the cylinder head and excess heat.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

UPDATE & FITTING TIP:  Went for a little 120 mile ride Saturday (had a specific task) and immediately wasn't impressed, the Satnav was bouncing around like a jelly ...... but I immediatelly realised it was my own fault. If you (can) zoom in on the side view picture you will see that the foam/rubber pad is not quite touching the instrument housing. When fitting the new bracket I inserted it between the ambient temperature probe and Madstad brackets. At my destination (couldn't be bothered to stop before) I was able to get a piece of cardboard box and slide it between instrument housing and bracket, slightly applying a small bit of tension on the bracket to eliminate the possibility of vibration/movement. On the return journey the Satnav was rock solid. :028:

So, the pad isn't there to avoid rubbing but essential to a stable Satnav,  I just need to reposition the bracket innermost directly against the instrument back housing and take a short test ride. If there is any movement/vibration it will simply need an extra piece of very thin foam/tape added to the existing pad. :017:
