Looking for some ideas of how riders are mounting their Garmin Nuvi or Zumo on the late model KLRs.

I figured it would be but I did a search and didn't find much and no pictures.

Simply attached the Nuvi mount to the KLR Dash with screws, no problems.

It's pretty simple for the KLR as well as most bikes, just purchase the handlebar mount from Ram, a 3" extension shaft from Ram, and the mounting bracket from Ram that fits your model GPS. All the parts should have the 1" ball and will fit together just fine. They are adjustable and remove in one twist of the wrist. I posted pics under Fuse Box Wiring somewhere, you can use the Search Button and look them up under that title.

I run a zumo Garmin (actually it's a BMW Nav IV or V) on my KLR and all the parts are cheap and available on Amazon to mount it up on the bars. There's a RAM mount that is bolt on compatible with the Garmin power cradle and I've got it hard wired to a switched power source on the bike so it's one when I turn the bike on and goes off automatically when I turn the bike off. Works like a champ. The Garmin Zumo gps units aren't the cheapest way to get sat nav on your KLR but I think it's far and away the best/most capable solution. There's an incredible amount of capability there for off-road tracks as well as other guidance and since I've been a user for several years and tens of thousands of miles of trips, my Garmin-Fu is strong. I guess it just depends on if you're looking for something simple or if you really need a hardened, weather proof and very capable unit. Pick that first and then solve the mount problem.
