Alternate GXM Mounting Location

This weekend I swapped over the farkles from the RT onto the GT.

One of the things i wanted to do was have the GXM Antenna mounted in the same location as on the RT - behind the instrument panel.

Mostly for aesthics - do not want to clamp on the bar or other areas.

Also was thinking of doing what others did by drilling a hole and mounting it under the windshield cover - but did not want to drill the hole

So I took off the front end and took a look behind the IP and found this place:



There is no interference with the cover

It is very securely mounted

And most important no effect to reception.

Just another idea.......

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.
