Tomtom one LT

Greetings,
I have tried over the last few days to attempt to mount my Tomtom one GPS onto the LT. I can't seem to find any good mounts for it that are affordable($50). One website suggested that I replace my resevoir cap with one of theirs so I can mount it off of that.

Any suggestions??

Thanks,

Zach

I've just mounted my TomTom One on the K....Mr cheapskate here used a metal joist hanger (avaialble at DIY shops, price £1.50 or $3 to you on that side of the pond), and a part of a vent mount kit (about £4 (8$))

The joist hanger was bent from its original 90 degree orientation to something around about 45 degrees (tried out the best angle of view on the bike first), drilled out with four holes on each side. On one side the mount for the TomTom (with a rubber layer to absorb vibration) and on the other, bolted through onto the upper part of the stingray.

Cables for power and autocomm connection threaded through under the stingray to the bracket and, voila!!

When I get round to it, I'll take a photo. True, its not the worlds most elegant mount, but it works well, is sturdy and was fantastic value for money!

Oh, and I enjoyed (?) taking the stingray off for the first time!! (how much bodywork do you have to remove first!!)

Take care out there.
