Sat nav mount by iconic
on: May 31, 2019, 04:04:21 PM
Fitted the satnav mount today. Just need to decide where to get the power feed from. On my 2015 I took it from the back of the 12volt socket.

Was a really fiddly job, I ended up removing the whole of the screen mount, was only 4 bolts then used a little glue to hold the oblong mounting plates in place, once dried it was a simple job of screwing the bolts in.
It's a very well made bracket.

Any excuse to get a picture of the TV posted eh  :notsure:

It does look good though, much better than the standard bar mount on mine!

The main thing is, you don't have to look down to much, so you are looking at the road ahead to a certain degree.

( I just happened to have the ignition turned on by mistake)

:4: :4: :4: I'm not convinced the screens even switch off as I've only ever seen them on with the brightness on max.

On my '19 Io routed the cable on the left-side of the bike under the fairing and along the frame.  I then used a relay to turn off the power when the bike is off that I powered off the license plate light IIRC.  The entire set sits just forward of the battery under the seat (between the battery and the tank.).  I run the heated jacket connectors off the same connection.

It was fairly simple, but I took my time as I didn't have the manual when I did mine and was unsure of the order that the fairings came off at.  Just gotta be careful of the front-most push-pin as I missed it and broke it when taking it apart the first time.
