Hi guys

I have seen many different types of spot mounts on this thread, but thought I would add my own version.

Made from a u-bolt and purlin clamp and mounted on the handlebars (only available space I had). I also added some split open tube and a piece of rubber to protect the handle bars.

I plan to replace the purlin clamp with a piece of square tubing to hopefully make it look neater.

Thanks for sharing. This is one I shall remember.

A few years back - I created a post on mounting a ZUMO 660's RAM mount to the handlebars.......... I did not want to use the U-bolt as it damaged the handlebar - so found a Brass clamp, which when cut in half provided the perfect solution - holes and diameter match perfectly............

check it out.....

Hi Goose

I very much wanted to copy that idea of using the repair clamp, but I needed to extend the clamp somehow which is why I used the purlin clamp. I will try out that repair clamp mount for some other ideas I have for my Tornado sometime in the near future  :thumleft:

That Goose patent clamp :biggrin: works like a bomb. Well.....mine did till my Zumo 660 became part of the Azanian wealth re-distribution programme. Now Big Dom's son will benefit from the Goose initiative!  :thumleft:
