Just got in Rck's (from AdventureTech), lowering links, and GPS mount. Threw on the mount this afternoon, and like everything else Rick fabricates, it's perfect. Places the GPS in the most optimum position with no buzz, rattle, or vibe...

I used Rick's GPS mount on a 2013 Strom as well, and this newer version for the '17 and '18 is just as well made, and thought out.... It takes the GPS off the handlebars, and puts it right in your line of sight... Took no more than 3 minutes to install.
I'll be putting on the links later this week...

Fitment question with aftermarket windshield:

I'm using a National Cycle V-Stream windshield, medium size, installed using the middle set of mounting bracket holes.

Has anyone has tried installing this GPS bracket with a V-Stream windshield? Are there any fitment issues that I should be aware of?

The V-Stream has it's own spacers and longer screws, which stick out behind the windshield mounting bracket when fully tightened. There is enough extra length that I've added the OEM rubber caps back on the ends of the screws. So I'm wondering if the install will be simply drop the GPS bracket in between the windshield mounting bracket and the V-Stream spacers (plug and play, as shown with the stock screen), or if I'm going to have spacer and/or mounting screw length issues with this particular windshield?

I do not want to move the windshield higher or lower in the mounting bracket, as the middle position is ideal.

Thanks!

The mounting of the GPS mount will not affect the use of the windscreen. The GPS mount simply goes between the windscreen and the windscreen mount. All mounting choices for the screen are still there for the screen.
Seriously considering purchasing. Sent you a PM...

Last March, I ordered Rick's GPS mount, and I love it. Like Rick had said, it's the best position for a phone or gps; if you have a phone or gps on your handlebars, your eyes spend more time off the road looking down at your phone/gps. But with Rick's GPS mount, I find I can still see the road from my "peripheral" vision when looking at the phone (I use maps). And the quality is top notch. Love it!!

I also installed Rick’s mount. I have a Madstad windshield and had no problems with the install. I like the position; easy to glance down to see.

The only GPS issue I have is reflection off the screen, which has nothing to do with the mount or position. I’ve had this problem on my goldwing as well. Seems my high vis jacket reflects yellow off the screen making it a little hard to read. Minor inconvenience.

I have installed several products from Adventuretech and found the install instructions very good and the products of very good quality.

Got your PM. THANKS. Will definitely be in touch as soon as I can clear current priorities. A good friend of mine who I ride with rides a new Harley. I sent him your contact info. Hope he calls you.
