The previous owner of my 2007 650 did the exact same thing. Here are a couple of pics.

That looks great, can you tell us by looking on Amazon or elsewhere what is under the 1" ball. Only interested in getting the 1" ball about as high as you have it above the tupperware.

As I mentioned ...

The ball mount I just drilled hole and used gutter washer (large OD small ID) or metal plate on the underside to spread the load, never had problem with that side of things.

Thanks to Terry Hamman and few others with their ideas. I now know how I am going to mount my Garmin RV760... First I ordered the bracket to hold the Garmin RAM Mounts (RAM-HOL-GA61LU) and also the RAM Mounts RAM-B-238 RAM 2.43" x 1.31" Diamond Base with 1" Ball that fits into the bracket. Now I have a solid ball attachment to my Garmin. NEXT comes the mount that will sit flush with the top of the tupperware. Yes I will drill 4 small holes to attach this to the bike. I will find a solid piece of metal and cut it to 4”x4” and mark holes using the RAM B-238 and drill holes in that. The 4x4 can be smaller I just want to spread out the load over a wide area, will bend to fit the contour. Will use stainless steel bolts to anchor. This should give me a very low profile for my Garmin in the center of my stearing column. Might cement a little something to the bottom backside of the garmin to lessen the bounch as I hope this will sit that close to the plastic on the handle cover. It's all ordered and I don't even have my bike yet. Hopefully two weeks or less. Happy riding from Maine
