Twisted Throttle GPS bracket

Has anybody used the Twisted Throttle GPS bracket with the MadStad? Did a search but not coming up with anything.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

I'll sell you mine. Just sitting in the toolbox now.

With my 2720 mounted to it, all the unit did was bounce around.

Very well made, but I think the thinness of the bracket promoted vibration. Nothing I tried worked.

The 2720 replaced my 60CS mounted on my bar. The 2720 will mount there instead. No vibrations.

I used it with the Zumo 550, and I mounted the Zumo mount high, and put the soft part of a Velcro strip on top of the dash, and have the bottom of the Zumo mount resting on it, with a little force pushing it down. That works the best, if you try to have it free floating, it will not work, as it has too much flex in the mount. But the way I did it, I am very happy with the mount. Nice clean fit.

I have the Twisted Throttle/SW Motech mount with the Madstad and a Tomtom Rider 2. The combo works well for me. The only disappointment I had was the quality of the mount upon arrival. Not only did I have to assemble all the bits - a task that could have been done during manufacturing (these things are expensive after converting to Australian dollars and shipping from the US), the holes which line up with the Tomtom bracket were all too small to fit even the screw through on its own (needed to file them out) and they didn't line up with the Tomtom mount holes so even more filing was needed. Once I had spent a fair bit of time doing what should have been done before being sent to me, it worked very well with no problems.

I am using it with my Zumo and the Madstad no issues. I like the way it bolts better with the Madstad than it did with the stock windshield mount.

Okay! Another farkle installed! Mounted it just like Ole did. Highest holes, with the Zumo resting on the dash (soft felt between cradle and dash). Seems quite solid, but I'll know more once I get a chance to ride tomorrow. Also installed the XM receiver, mounted on top of the brake fluid reservoir. Now if only I can get the damned thing activated!

Anyways, one thing to note about the Madstad... If you have the old version, and have it mounted in the lowest position, the top hole is obscured. You'll have to file or drill the bracket to get everything to fit right. I believe the new version has resolved this and should be compatible with all GPS mounts (or so says their web site).

I'll post pics tomorrow when the sun comes up.


Cheers!
