    I tried one of the stem mounts from Techmount on the Breva - same as the one you picture, the stem nut is the same as the Stelvio and it wasn't very good - I had to re-engineer it with a bolt and nut down through the hole and although I got it to work in the end, I have since chucked it in favour of a better solution. Problem is the hexagonal hole doesn't give the same bearing surface for the rubber rings to grip onto as the round hole they are designed for.

    Haywards of cambridge have shown an interest - have a word with Rob and we will arrange supply if you don't want to deal direct.

    Well, I wanted it as much in my sight line as possible. And I bought it the eavening before a long trip. No time to make something special. I found that the original zumo 660 mount will do. Mounted against the screen adjustment bolts. Just a longer bolt was all needed. And slightly making the hole in the mount bigger so that a m8 fits.

    I like the way you've mounted your Zumo very much! It seems very simple, the unit is very visible. How has it stood up to riding? How do you like the 660? I've read some negative reviews of the product...

    What is an m8? How did you connect the power? Your pictures are very good, but not having the mount in hand, I can't quite make out how you've mounted it to the windscreen adjustment rail.

    Love to hear your comments - thanks a lot!

    well M8 is the metric 8mm bolt size. As can be seen in the picture mounting is with 2 bolts, the top one is the same as the windscreenheight adjustment, the bottom one is 6mm, and goes through the mounting rail. If you have the parts in your hand it's simple. Riding is excelent with it. I don't use ears, only the view. And have been traveling all over europe this way. The connections are simple, There is a long wire on the zumo mount. I took that under the tank to the back. There I connected it the the accesory power source there.

    I bought the zumo the day before the big trip, so had little time to play, only had to get the routes in, that worked. I like the zumo, and I hate it.
    For the price it's bad. My car navi made 8 years ago does it just as good. Then it has some strange things that you learn, how to get arround, reading forums. But that shouldn't be needed with a brandnew piece for that price. My wife said, bring it back, it's no good. But I keep it, becuase it makes it possible to plan trips upfront, and drive the road I planned. With my older eyes I have a problem reading a map in the tankbag, have to stop, take the helmet of, and put reading glasses on, thats no longer needed. With the stelvio an extra plus is, when you have a near empty tank, it will get you to a gas station nearby. Or the nearest Guzzi dealer:) when needed. I put all european dealers in poi files. Fond some us too, all on: http://www.mgcn.nl/dameijer/Garmin-GPS-bestanden

    Thanks very much for the information! Your comments on the the Garmin are what a lot of people say about that unit... I'm going to investigate some more. I would like to find a cheaper one as well if possible. Thanks a lot for the Guzzi USA list download - good to have and hope I don't have to use it :) :)

    Happy Trails! Jesse

    I've used http://www.telferizer.com for a mount on a Honda VFR - this was an expanding bung that fits inside the steerer tube, expensive but easy fit and a solid.
    Planning on selling the VFR shortly but the Stelvio steerer tube is 14 mm AF hex shaped, the VFR is say 20 mm dia, so I'll have to get another. Fortunately for me this guy is almost on my door step.

    Although I may take alook a the other ideas here, I'd like to keep the bar clamp visible as I like the Guzzi etched logo on the clamp plate.

    Hey BigTex,
    Do you happen to have any of your mounts Type I, that you could part with? I would like one for my Stelvio if you have them still.

    I don't have any on hand, but I had someone else ask about them, so maybe I'll whip some up this afternoon if no one is looking.

    I have mounted a support for my GPS (model Garmin Zumo 550) on my Stelvio NTX.
    Here you'll find somme pics of the piece (made in ordinary iron) and some pics mounted on the Stelvio:

    Franck, that looks really great! Did you fabricate it yourself?

    I made this one, it should be in the view line, so as high as possible. I don't have sound in the helmet.

    Some people have impressive metal working skills.
