Where to connect the stock Garmin ram mount?

Post by terrydel » Thu Oct 08, 2015 6:04 pm

Ive just got a zumo 590lm and wondering where to hook it up.
The ubolt doesn't fit round the handlebars in the centre, only up near the switchgear. And the supplied bolts seem the wrong length given the nuts supplied, it ends up being very loose.
Any tips greatly appreciated.

For my 340LM i got a ball mount, which i attached using a longer bolt (supplied) replacing one of the four handlebar mounting bolts; not my pic:

I think it's zimm17 off of the forum.

Or above the speedo, underneath the screen:

Gosh, am I so late to join this forum? I shall be Capt. Obvious. For those as new as I am, Ram makes a ball mount that replaces one of the handlebar mount bolts. I use it for the multiple accessories produced by RAM...a GoPro, Phone, or GPS. The kit includes different length bolts to accommodate your installation. I can say it's awesome.
