Silly question #2345:

I have got a Zumo that I would like to mount on the Silverwing. I have got everything apart from the handlebar ball mount thingy that I inadvertedly sold with my old bike. By the looks of it that would not fit anywhere on the wing anyway.

Has anyone got a garmin Zumo or other GPS device mounted on their SW? Where, how? The handlebar curve in the middle looks like a good place...

Q2: Whats the best way to wire it? Discovering there is actually a "lighter" type 12V plug inside the left pocket of the dash, I thought of wiring through there (perhaps making a couple of small holes up to mounting point... thats instead of wiring from the battery...

Which Zumo?

Some have power cradles ... some do not.

Some folks have put a powerlet output next to the left of the right glove box.

btw.. My Zumo has a power cradle. My question is whether to wire the cradles power supply from the lighter socket (easier? ) or directly from the battery....

I use the lighter socket I installed in my left glovebox to plug in my Magellan 2200T. The GPS fits on a mount in the center of the handlebars. I removed the two bolts from the handlebar cover, and installed an aluminum plate I made. The plate was attached using longer bolts and a couple spacers to raise the plate above the plastic handlebar cover. The Magellan has a small plastic bracket that's bolted to the aluminum plate to which the GPS simply snaps on. I prefer having the GPS in the center, I have a bracket on my Goldwing mounted in the center for the same GPS. Center mounting is safer in my opinion because you tend to go where your eyes point. Looking at the center mounted GPS reduces the tendency to wander to the side if you have your eyes on the GPS too long.

from what you say, originally having a ball mount which you did not retain, it was likely made by RAM.

not overly expensive or difficult to source or replace. for the Swing they make various adapters, one being a replacement brake fluid cover with a threaded lug to take the ball mount.

no idea about the wiring sorry,

Fancy meeting you here!

I've got a Zumo 660 mounted on one of DennisB's super mounts.
It works a treat (the mount, that is)

Hi Mike,
shhhh! steady now, or we will get talked about Zumo mount Drunken_smilie

i did actually join this forum just before getting my swing to read up do's and don's. while in the main contingent is in the USA making it a tad difficult to get to the ride outs (well without the wife noticing the washing up is piling Wink ), i hid not realise the custom mod section was so vibrant, and a lot due of that is due to Den's inventive idea's and extensive skills.

i was on another dedicated swing forum, they mention his light bar's and other bits, so i asked details and he contacted me, went from there to here Smile.

you know from my 'cheaop' sat/nav mount' i design simple stuff from time to time, but unfortunately i don't have the workshop space or heavy tools i'd need for any big projects or making long runs, so hope i can suggest idea's or solution's for denins to implement, obviously if he feels they are viable.

from what i've read he actively encourages idea's from members for him to consider - i could keep him busy for a while if he is not very careful lol!

"shhhh! steady now, or we will get talked about"

True but you know what Osacr Wilde said. Zumo mount Icon_wink

Having the wherewithal is usually my problem when it comes to making bits for my bikes.
Dennis makes exclusively good stuff as we all know so I leave it to the expert.
I've one or two ideas I might just throw into the ring at some point and hope he takes the bait!
I bought an arc-welder when we moved here and must pluck up the courage to start using it.
