I've ordered the TomTom variant. It's not clear if there is enough space behind the screen for it to work with the (Rider 550) anti-theft solution, so I will report on that specifically. I'm also interested to see how the view angles are when the screen is fully up or down (as the mount itself does not seem to have an adjustment).

Thanks to XCaTel for the heads up.

Cheers

The anti-theft solution is quite deep, I wouldn't be surprised if it was too tight for that.

And here is the video of version 3 of my bracket with more finish and I reversed the fixing screw by placing it on top.

There are just a few vibrations left on very rough roads. Otherwise, the rest of the time, it's really comfortable.
I just drove almost 2,500 km in the Vercors in France with 10 bikes behind me and it was very cool and without u-turn.

Might this be what some are looking for? Much cheaper than the Italian equivalent. It raises and lowers with the screen and for those interested in how it fits the instal manual is downloadable from their website.

I've started a new topic here for discussions about this mount specifically (not that this topic has too many pages :148:)

This one has been picked up on the forum before, very pricey. There’s a fella on YouTube mounting on a 1200 & 800 I think.

Ok, came looking for a solution to the BAD idea Triumph gave us on an otherwise awesome bike...
I have the 180€ setback from Triumph bar... it sucks. Badly.

Love the handywork some of you have done on your bikes but I'm not able to do so.
This seems the best solution, thanks for sharing XCaTel!

Will negotiate with my dealer, and offer him this piece of advice  :001:

 :460: and thanks!

Everyone in this topic still looking for a workable solution, there might be good news from you all.
Based on a design T800XC tried and tested in this post: https://www.tiger-explorer.com/index.php/topic,18723.msg219033/topicseen.html#new and some adaptations, the design currently is as attached.

I could have this manufactured, if some people are interested.
It's made so it would fit RAM pieces, which are available in most countries, or other adaptations (like the ones T800XC uses himself). Holes are made somewhat wider as to accommodate a variety of possibilities. It's made for use for these parts on top of the bracket:

- https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-238U
- https://www.rammount.com/part/RAP-B-379U-M81208

and then elongate with

- https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-201U-A
- https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-201U

That should ensure enough clearance for proper movement of the screen. Test done by T800XC in the other thread.

Pricing is also mentioned in the other thread, it's just the production cost for a small amount.
If we can find a couple people interested, I'd be willing to have it produced and ship it to you, at cost price plus shipping cost. (I'm not a business...)

Here's to hoping for some interest so we could at least have 5 produced!!!

Cheers guys!

ps, I'm in no way affiliated to RAM, but those parts, or similar from different brands, are available pretty widely. That helps in making ONLY the bracket, and no extra parts, driving the price up...
