    Sat Nav mount .

    My bike came with the Tomtom Rider
    when l filled up with petrol l was surprised how close the Tomtom was to the filler cap , also it seemed to be quite difficult to read in bright sunlight .
    Can you buy a mount that would fit above the instruments ? fixed maybe to the screen mounts . Sure that would be more shaded and directly in line of sight .

    Thanks Robert

    Yes its made by SW Motech and fits to the screen bracket GPS.01.548.10000/B and puts your gps above the clocks however I had to remove the damping grommets from the bracket to reduce some of the flexing, the front end on my bike is very harsh (new internals and springs going in Friday) and the bracket is fairly weighty and well made so the whole lot including the dash, screen and anything mounted to the support bracket shakes and wobbles not a problem on smooth roads. With the grommets removed the Gps is readable most of the time.

    I've not been aware of that on mine. Do you have any pics you could post to illustrate this?

    Sorry complete numpty , can't do it .
    Maybe l could loosen the mount and tilt it
    It is located right in the middle of the handlebars.
    Do you find it very close to the filler cap .
    Need to be very careful when filling up to stop any splash back hitting the Tom tom

    Thanks Robert

    Yes. The bike came with the Rider Pack.

    I have a similar RAM mount on the other side of the bars which holds my bike cam, but instead of clamping onto the bars, it attaches to the 2 bolts that hold the mirror & clutch MC assembly on.
