making a GS style satnav/phone mount
« on: Aug 10, 2018, 03:37 PM »
may be of interest for some, i'm in the process of designing and making a high accessory bar for my mk1, the aim is to hold a phone / shat-nav up away from the bars, where most mounts are, since looking down that far on more technical roads can be a bit of a titspanner. bit flexy at the moment, i think another arm held under the right screen bolts aswell as the left may be the ticket. Feel free to share/critique/suggest.

I used an SW Motech mount meant for a zzr1400  something like this would do the same job https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sw-motech-BMW-S1000-Xr-Satnav-Mount/283057604427?hash=item41e78c474b:g:UJsAAOSwT2pbSyqL
and some 4mm aluminium plate, bit of cutting and drilling and my Garmin looks like it always lived behind my screen on the MK1

You do know that you can just buy that right ?

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I don't have a picture to hand,

But i had some old straight mountain bike handlebars.

Cut down to length, flattened each end in a big vice.

Some dremmel work to finish the edges, drilled to holes to mount behind the screen.

Prime, paint & viola. Done.

Total cost, £mytime.

As i had everything lying around in the garage.

Will post pics if wanted/needed.

Stainless shower handset riser rail also does the job and is easier to work. (I happened to have one knocking about, so similar cost)
