Adam's GSX-R GPS mounting

I need a way of fixing the GPS bracket to the bike. On the old GSX-R, I used the Garmin bicycle mounting on the mirror stay. Then I got a Touratech mount, (which didn't fit around the mirror stay), and then a new GSX-R which doesn't even have a mirror stay ... so I had to think of something. Or, worse, make something!

Mk.1: Dodgy First Attempt

Here's the first attempt ... using the tools I'm qualified for: duck tape & polystyrene packing.

It works well though, and the power (left) and Lowe antenna connector (right) are neatly routed under the tank - they probably won't foul the throttle, or touch something hot. (There's nothing hot under the tank, is there?)

Mk.2: Beautiful Engineering Solution :-)

Here's the glorious realisation: just a couple of angle brackets and some threaded rod. It's fixed to the bike using the top yoke clamp bolts, and it's rock solid - much better than I expected!

I'd expected it to obscure the clocks at least partially, but this doesn't significantly interfere with the view.
Mk.3: Same bike, different GPS
Obviously the GPS V (like my GPS III and GPS III+ before it) only lasted two years.
When that died, I bought a GPSMAP 60C, and another Touratech mount.

This GPS is a bit bigger, and the display is in "portrait" mode, so as you can see it covers up part of the tacho ... but not the interesting part :-).
The Touratech is beautifully made as always, though getting the GPS on to the power plug is a bit tight. The mount was suplied with a rubber cover for the power plug, which is something it always needed.
