Ram mount
« on: February 03, 2015, 07:34:14 pm »
Hey All

I have my sat nav mounted on my left hand bar, replaced my garmin zumo550 for zumo 590lm.
Any ideas I want to extend the high to clear the tank bag more and to move it over to the right a little because the new one is 0.75 inches wider.
I have seen on eBay ram mounts which are articulate and turn 360 degrees
Pictures welcome

Regards :152:

I made adapters so I could use axillary mirrors, but if you have your GPS in the mirror mount, I think it'd be about the same.   I have 2 short RAM arms with a double-ball connector and am able to position the GPS above the tank bag and turn fully without a problem.....

Hi janfmiller

Yes I do use my mirror thread, I have a 9cm arm then a base plate fitted to the back of the sat nav, what is your configuration

I modified the motorcycle mount the Zumo 550 came with to take a RAM ball adapter, but I don't recall exactly how I did it, seems to me it was quite easy...  Pictures are same exact mount on my KLR650, easily transfers from bike to bike...
