One of the items I wanted to put on my daughter's bike is a GPS. I purchased a new Navigator VI for my GS and decided to mount the Nav V on the 310. After talking with my parts guy, he said there was some difficulty with getting the cradle and mounting brackets made for the bike. The part number in question is: 77538388827
. While I was in the dealership, I checked out the other bikes to see what mounts were being used. For the ultimate minimalistic look, the mount I saw on the R1200R was the smallest version. It is not lockable, like the cradle on the GS. This is part number 65908535826
Underneath the headlight assembly, you will find a 12VDC switched power connection. It is the connector with the markings, 7543312-02. The orange is +. The cable which comes with the GPS connector has two white male connectors. For my installation, since I only wanted power connected to the GPS, made a jumper to connect the red wire from the mount to the orange wire for +, and black to black for -. All connections were sealed from the environment, and reassembled.
I made the two aluminum pieces to fit the ProTaper Yamaha Mini bars I was installing at the same time. These were made to fit the 0.500" crossbar, providing plenty of clamping force and more robust than the factory plastic mounts. At the same time, my daughter picked out a set of ProGrip blue/black grips to give a better feel. To install new bars, you will need to locate and drill two holes in the handlebar to use with the locating/anti-rotation pins in each control pod. This is a recommended step. Using the crossbar for mounting the GPS also will allow installation of the MRA windscreen without any interference between the two mounting area fighting for the same space to the handlebar clamping bolts.
I did order a set of adjustable levers for this bike, yet when received, they are completely different that was was visually represented from the Amazon seller. I hope to get this resolved shortly.
