As the mounts that I have seen for a GPS/PHONE appear to be handlebar mounted how can one be fitted to a Silverwing as nearly all of the handlebar is covered.
Any advice would be gratefully received.

A lot of us used a mount made specifically for the SW by one of our members.  DennisB.Fitting GPS DSC00001

This is not a great picture but do a search on here and you can find better ones. Good luck.

This option will give you up to four mounting points via the brake perch mounts. The mount in the pictures on our bike are the single ball version. The double is available on the web site below.

There is also a reservoir cover available with holes for one or two RAM balls from MotorcycleLarry.

I've got a one-ball one for my ipod.

Be advised that the Honda reservoirs are longer than 'standard' ones.

Here's the link:

Go with the reservoir mount. Mounting the gps in the center will obstruct the light indicators.

Yes I found that using the short 1.75 inch RAM arm, so I now use the 3 inch RAM arm instead. The main problem with a centre mounted GPS is sun reflecting off the screen or bleaching out the display. I found that to be the case using a TomTom Rider, sat nav and had to fit a Glare Buster sun shade.

I'm hoping my Garmin Zumo 350 LM is better in bright conditions as the display is light reactive and won't need to shade the screen.
