A couple of mounts

On my 1199S, I completed a couple of mounts today. Thanks to suggestions across the forum, I have two different mounts for my radar detector and have posted the pictures below. Let me know if you need more pics.

The black center mount is probably my favourite, I had the dealer install it for me so I don't have a lot of details. I plan to velcro my radar detector right on top. This is exactly the product I purchased, I got it from Amazon but I'm sure you can get it from Adaptiv or elsewhere: Amazon.com: Adaptiv D-01-16 AdaptivMount Type D Sport Bike Mount: Automotive

Also, I installed just the base for a silver mount on the fork. As I was instructed, for the S you'll need to slip the wires past the base's opening but that was easy; you can do this yourself. It fits and it looks good. I may use it in the future. I also purchased it thru Amazon but I'm sure you can get it from Techmount or elsewhere: Amazon.com: Techmount Fork Tube Mount Kit - Silver - 53mm 70053SILVER: Automotive

Yep, not the ram mount. Brought the mount to my dealer, not sure what it took to install or exactly what he did but he didn't seem to have a problem; almost positive I couldn't not have installed it myself. He told me it would sit up a little bit high but that's cool as you can see from the pics.

It's solid, it looks good, it's positioned almost perfectly and so adjustable. Thanks for the intel on this mount.

Good looking mounts!
The local trackday companies around here now require gopros to be hard tethered so I'll be looking for some ideas like these.

I like them! Nice install...can you get your dealer tech to give up the install process and post it up?

I couldn't get the RAM 342 to work since the top of the hole is much narrower than the shaft after you get past the lip.

On this mount mentioned in the OP, can the main section be shortened or replaced?

You won't have to shorten it...it fits perfectly on the 1199.

I purchased the MotorReva Ram Ball Mount Stem based on the recommendation of another member. I dropped it off at the dealer for install and at first glance the Tech said it was approximately 1/4" taller than stock. They are going to try to install it this week prior to picking up my new 1199. With that said I will be really pissed if the forum member was screwing with me.

Another option for those who already have a stem mount is to drill the hole out to 6mm, purchase a countersunk M6/60mm bolt (eBay!) and mount it above the steering damper.
