It's not incredibly attractive (ok, it's ugly), so while the screen was off I taped off a line, hit the inside of the screen with scotch-brite, and painted it black. Makes a nice natural glossy "dash line" on the screen and hides the wiring and mount from the front.

mudtrack I ordered Rick's Adventuretech Over The Dash GPS Mount a couple days ago, to go with a Garmin Zumo 395 I also ordered.
Neither have arrived yet, but they are on the way. I also plan on mounting Rick's fender risers to gain a half inch clearance for my front tire.

Jeffro650 I use an AdventureTech over dash mount with short RAM arm and PerfectSqueeze. Works great for me

I use a short arm and my 660 is snug against the dash rail just above my gauges, easily within line of sight but not blocking any of the forward sight picture.

But those are for 2004 and up. I would love to have one for my K2.

mjt57 Question regarding your photos, folks. I had to shrink mine to a small size and add it as an attachment. As you can see it shows as a thumbnail. How did you guys manage to get it to display full size within the message frame?

When I try to upload a photo via the "drag files here to attach" method they are too big. Clicking on the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the message box pops up a window asking me for a URL to link to the image file. Which I don't have.
