Garmin 660LM mount
« on: June 02, 2015, 11:19:20 AM »

Ordered a Garmin 660 LM should be here tomorrow.  Would like to mount in center of the batwing in the field of sight.  Has anyone ever done this with a padded dash?  Iron Aces makes a center mount but show it without the pad.

You probably already know that HD makes the mount to put it on the padded dash, but it goes on the side. Never saw one in the ctr of a padded dash.

The 2012 CVO Softail Convertible had a windshield mount for the 660.  I bought the individual pieces (no kit) and put it on my SEUC3 with a short KlockWerks Flare shield.  Worked great; easy line-of-sight instead of looking to the side like clutch mount.

Did you bolt it to the windshield?  Do you have a picture of install. From what I can see this will work well.

Thanks

Windshield side:


I did this to a Road Glide a year and a half or so ago.  A little notch in the front of the inner with a grommet for the cable.  Was a simple and clean addition that seem a better alternative to the guy that owned the bike than any greater cutting or drilling on the inner for any other fabricated mount we considered.  He didn't want to go with any pod mount.

Out of town yesterday.  Yes, bolted to w/s.  If you do this, make sure it's mounted high enough on w/s to allow tilt adjustment--doesn't have much tilt adjust on mine cuz curvature of w/s prevents mounting any higher.
