Zumo mount for V-Strom with Madstad bracket

I originally mounted the Zumo on the center bracket for the windshield. But when I installed the Madstad windshield mount, that option went away.

I cut off a piece of aluminum lacrosse stick shaft I had around, drilled holes to mount the bolts through it, and painted it black. This was very easy to fabricate, and mounts the RAM mount very solidly with little vibration.

One other change made is to remove the hand wheel on the bracket and use a Nyloc nut instead. This prevents anyone from removing the entire mount in case I ever left the GPS in place - which I don't do. GPS theft is booming so I lock it up in the top case, or take it with me.

I used the same bolts for mine. The cross piece is a 1"x1"x1/8" aluminum angle with a 1/4"x20 threaded stud RAM ball and nut. It's a perfect place for the mount and works with MP brackets too.



Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
