GPS or extra gages mount for Versys.

I designed and made a GPS mount that can be easily installed to windshield bracket.
It makes for very sturdy and clean set up. It is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and is anodized black.

Hi guys
As long as you use original Versys brackets to hold a new wind screen (GIVI or other) you will have NO problem to install a GPS mount.

Hi Speedy,

As you know I bought one of your GPS mounts on another forum. I have installed it and it looks and works great. (No pictures yet because I am still working on the wiring.) Great job on the bracket.

Hi Graham (Hooligan),

I'm here, alive and well. Thank you for asking.
Your GPS Mount is on its way. You should be getting it around Tuesday.

Cool beans! Were you able to drill it for the Zumo mount and if so, what do I owe you for that?

Sorry dude. I don't know the hole patterns for zumo or other GPS units. If I did I would drill them for free. Also there are too many options for the hole locations and I can bet that eventualy guys would not be happy because they would be getting mounts with holes that don't much their units.

I'm a bit confused. Will your setup work with the stock windscreen/brackets also? I added a Laminar Lip to my stock screen and that has proven effective for me, so I'd like to avoid "re-inventing the wheel."

FYI, I'm actually interested in your mount as a way to put in a couple of gauges (volts and water temp.)

Thanks...and beautiful work!
