GPS to K12LT Mount

What's the best CycleGadget combination to attach my new Garmin 2630 to my K1200LT that does not require drilling any holes into either the handlebar cover or the instrument panel? It looks like the RAM arm,even with the extended U bolt, won't work. Will it?

You can use the ones that go in the mirror holes on either side, or the ones that replace the brake and clutch reservoir covers.

1. Does this obscure your mirror vission?
2. Where did you get this one from?

I know you don't want to drill holes- I didn't either- BUT, the BMR shelf really works great to mount the GPS, Radar, Garage door opener, and eye glass case.

I use the RAM short arm mounted to a RAM point mounted to the center of the BMR. This allows me to adjust the GPS for least glare and best viewing. Also moves it up a little higher- easier for me to see w/o having to look way done.

Just 2 small holes!

1) a little but not much
2) the dealer in Ft. Worth, but you can get it cheaper on the internet, ZTechnic.

I have a Garmin c330 that I am trying to find a clean center mount for my 2006 LT. Any advice so I don't have to buy another nav system?

I've got an RCU shelf with a bracket welded on for a GPS. No drilling, good mount. I'd be looking for $75 plus shipping.
