Did you use it with only the end bolts for support at all? If so, do the rubber pads make very much of a difference?

I've not road tested this version yet. The rubber pads are there to replace the foam wedged under the bracket and do stiffen everything up. I will push down on the bracket (taking advantage of the bolt slots) when I tighten the bolts, to ensure maximum compression of the instrument hood.

Hi Guiri

Bracket all fitted - looks good!

Will be testing it out on my trip to the Picos and Portugal next week - this will determine whether I need to physically brace the bracket to the Screen Shield in some way.

Piccies attached - got to tidy up the SatNav lead but I've ordered a new satnav anyway so wont be spending too much time on that.

Thanks again for all you help. Cheers

While preparing my order for the RAM-mount RAM-B-273-M6U, to be used with the upcoming delivery by Xtof, I was wondering:
  • Is there a difference between the RAM-B-273-M6 and RAM-B-273-M6U (with/without 'U')
  • Will the 'Xtof' bracket work with the TomTom anti-theft option

I prefer 1 order for the whole lot in 1 go.  :038:

From the RAM website..."The 'U' in the part number reflects product packaged in poly bag."

Guys,
Sorry for the silence this week. I'm taking a little break from work to think things through, so i took off for the Alps and have been riding mountain passes for three days now.

The good news I can share though, is the bracket (without pads, they havent arrived yet) works immensely better than the speed devils solution my triumph dealer sold me, I'm very happy with the result already!
Also, with the Ram mount it's easily turned up a bit when you're up on the pegs and still want a good look on your gps with a quick glance down.

Will report asap when the pads are in. Bought the first set on amazon but they were too small, bought a second set on ebay, 20*20 mm, they're on the way.

Cheers! Xtof

Yes, I mounted it upside down though to make it easier to get the key in from beneath.
