Hi my fellow Stormtroopers,
I like to share my experience and outline the way I installed my Garmin Zumo 660 on the new V-Strom.
The challenge on the Zumo 660 is that there are a lot of cable from the motorcycle mount like audio, mic, USB, power. I intend was to install it in a war that I can hook up the cables without breaking my fingers all the time and that the audio cable disconnects by itself if it has to go fast.
I ordered the navigation mount from Home - Online-Shop
, the device is very stable, it only vibrates a bit when you ride on low RPM's. I attached the power to the power plug on the back of the cockpit on the original power plug. Take out the two plastic pin's on top, unscrew the two allen screws on the bottom and forward the whole cockpit. I run the cable through the side of the windshield mount and along the frame to the joint head.
So far so good, but I did not want to buy a 30.- Euro handle bar mount jut for the audio and the mic cable. Instead I bought a brass dowel/thread pod from Fischer Dübel (fischer group of companies â€“ Innovationen vom Erfinder der fischer DÃ¼bel: Brass fixing MS
Wrapped some duct tape around it until it fitted the joint head. The hollow screw of the joint head has a diameter of app. 13 mm, the dowel has a diameter of 10 mm. I cut a piece of aluminum profile, drilled there holes in it, made it look nice, used a screw to attach it to the joint head. I used rubber sealing rings and retaining rings to attach it to the aluminum profile. All together about 5 Euros and an hour work!
