  1. It looks like it broke right above the last mounting point. I'd say flex created by the rider's weight concentrates at that location and produces a fatigue fracture. Sort of a design flaw really. I'd have it welded and ride on. Check the rest of the main frame for cracks frame

  3. Thanks for the suggestions and pics. I decided that the fork mount wasn't going to work for me, first pic, key sticks out into danger zone too much, so I came up with this.
  4. Thanks again. I have some decisions to make. I like the mount I first posted because it’s low and solid but I also think it might block my trailtech computer. The mount you are using has power and is more versatile.
  5. Thanks for all the advice. Does the power just attach to the mount and then plug into regular charging port on the GPS?
  6. Yea I'm trying to decide on the power thing. I have three batteries for the Garmin and a separate charger so I'm not sure I need it. Would be nice though. I'm just tired of wiring.
  7. Ok thanks, looks like a good setup. Nice bike BTW. Your GPS is extended pretty far up and the Garmin isn't what I'd call light, any problem with it bouncing around, vibration? Here's my bike.
  8. OK I see what you have going there I think. The front half of the Amps mount looks just like the one I posted but it doesn’t have the back half on it. So it looks like the ball mount screws to it but how does it mount on the handlebars?
  9. This one? https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-0101165407-Handlebar-Montana-Monterra/dp/B0076MLF0E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490367781&sr=8-1&keywords=garmin+montana+handlebar+mount
  10. I’d like to mount my Garmin Montana 680t on my handlebars just below my trailtech computer. Any have any recommendations on a good quality mount? Thanks
  11. Thanks for the suggestions. I’ve been focused on other projects but I’m back on the bike today, raining out.
  12. That looks slick, I’ll check that out tomorrow.
  13. I’ve had a bolt on on my dirt bike before and that worked for carrying a tool kit and a few emergency items but for this I was thinking something I could carry my documents and wallet and phone and such in and I don’t want to leave it when I go in a store or park somewhere in public so I was thinking something removable.
  14. I’d like to get some sort of removable bag to strap or mount on the rear fender of my bike so I can carry the title and insurance and maybe a few things now and then. Any good ideas? Thanks
  15. So my KLX had bigger diameter bars and a heavier triple tree when I got it and the ignition switch holder bracket was ziptied to the bars. The holes on the clamps are further apart than the holes in the bracket and also the bolt heads are recessed so it couldn’t be bolted back in the stock location. I just installed a trailtech computer and I’d like to do something with the ignition switch. Any good ideas out there? Thanks.
