Re: how to mount a gps on a burgman 650
I used my dremel tool and and vari-drill and made a nice hole in the top of the handlebar cover directly over the center of the handlebar between the mounting bolts. Then I clamped on the arm of a RAM mount 6" sticking up through the hole. I have a Garmin GPS and bought an extra backing mount for it and bolted it to the RAM Mount. Then I took a plastic 3" X 5" card holder from Office Depot and cut one side out and the top off and I use it as a shield over the GPS like a bill of a cap to block the sun off the GPS face. The shield is mounted between the GPS Mount and the RAM Mount in a sandwich type affair. The shield needs to be a bit deeper to block more of the sun, however.
