    Wobbly bracket

    Evening all,

    I was out for a run today and my OEM satnav bracket became wobbly.. it has dropped enough to cover the top line of the instrument cluster (time, temp gear indicator) and it looks like the M5 screws have come adrift. I hope so anyway; that's preferable to something structural breaking! So I have two questions:

    Q1: has this happened to anybody else?

    Q2: Given that it's all wired and working (if a bit wobbly) how much of the bike will I need to strip down to have a look?

    I'm hoping I may get away with partial strip down as per the OEM fitting instructions. I wasn't planning on Easter being spent in the shed (although that's not a bad way to spend a day).

    Thanks in advance!

    First check the single horizontal bolt that allows the bracket to be tilted -
    it might just be that bolt needs tightening.

    Otherwise you will need to remove the front Cockpit panels,
    which can be a little awkward the first time you do it, but is not particularly difficult.

    Follow the instrutions in this Topic : HOW TO: Fitting Triumph Sat Nav Mount & Zumo 660.

    Note there are two plastic screws just above the Indicator retaining screws that also need to be removed.
    They need a cross head screwdriver to undo them from their expanding plastic inserts,
    and can be helped out by being pushed from the other side with a fingertip.

    Once all the screws are out, release the lower edge by pulling it gently towards the rear of the bike,
    which will need the mirrors to be folded partially out to clear them, then lift the top edge of the panel
    upwards to free it from the retaining lugs.

    There is no need to completely remove the panel or disconnect the wiring sockets to the Instrument Pack.
    ( It's a good opportunity to check they are both firmly pushed home though ! ).

    There are 2 x Allen bolts securing the Sat Nav Bracket to the Instrument Fascia Bracket,
    needing a smaller Allen Key = Take care with these as it's easy to damage the heads
    which will then make them, difficult to remove of they are tight !

    The Fascia Bracket is secured to the Instrument Pack with two longer Allen bolts and rubber bushes.

    Cheers  :821:

    All sorted.. Easy fix, thanks to that How To linked up the tread.
    Both screws holding the bracket had loosened as much as they could but stayed with the bike, thankfully. So, a bit of loctite and they are good to go.

    While I was doing the job I noticed this:



    It's a bundle containing audio in/out, USB female and a mic in sockets. What are they for? I wonder if these should have been connected to my Garmin when the dealer installed the bracket?




    Many thanks!

    Those are all part of the bundle of wires that come from the Garmin 595 (etc) Cradle
    and will comprise a USB Socket, 3.5mm Jack Socket for Audio Input, and a 2.5mm Jack for Microphone Input.

    There is also a 3.5mm Audio OUT Socket that can be connected to the Trophy Audio system NAV input Jack plug.

    Cheers  :821:

    >>> There is also a 3.5mm Audio OUT Socket that can be connected to the Trophy Audio system NAV input Jack plug.

    The fact the dealer neglected to connect this to the bike's loom would probably explain why I can't get turn directions through the speakers  :187:

    On the plus side, I know how to get to all the wiring at the front of the bike now  :002:

    Looks like a revisit to the shed tomorrow...

    UPDATE: The nice lady from Garmin is now talking to me through the bike speakers  :002:

    Why the dealer didn't plug that in when he fitted the bracket is anyone's guess. It took all of two seconds once it was apart (which it was when they patched in the power lead).

    Official Triumph dealer too...

    No doubt after the first three voice guidance instructions I will mute them, but you know how it is; if something is supposed to work, I WANT it working!
