I thought that spot was right too.BEhrler said:How did you mount your FRS radio? That looks like a great spot for it.
Scott, I'm looking at stealing your idea also. Presently, my Icom is sitting in the BMW cup holder!motorhead said:Bar cover .... as in the silver plastic "Handle" bar cover.
Scott, thanks again! You're providing all the answers I need tonight! As usual, I have more questions: Can the Shoo Goo be removed if you want to change the mounting location? What brand name for "shoo goo" should I look for?motorhead said:Yup, Foam is there to take up the space between clip that belt would ocupy .. And does act like a damper.
Sho-Goo is TOUGH stuff !! & have not given it a second thought.
Wipe down surface you are going to "Goo Too" with some alcohol first & bond will be VERY strong.
BTW. Shoe goo flexs slightly so it's bond does not fatique. But if you really tweek on it hard, it will break free slowly making install semi permanate
Looking at the 2 pics you posted (the ones that show the shoo goop, the belt clip, and radio up close), it appears that my Icom belt clip and yours are different. Is your belt clip a quick-disconnect thing? On mine the belt clip is attached with 2 small Phillips screws. I'd have to get a screwdriver out to remove the belt clip from the radio (and to reattach it) -- very inconvenient, and now my plan is shifting towards just mounting the radio itself -- no belt clip -- on the bike. And BTW, I'm going to use Dual Lock on the winglets below the windshield. Any reason that won't fly (no pun intended)? Someone has done this already.motorhead said:Sho-Goo is it's own brand. Another is known as "Goop" and they make a few versions, shoe goop, household goop & plumbers goop. Any of them will work just fine.
& yes it is removable if needed.
We may have something here. In your pics, is that the AA battery case, or the rechargeable NiCad battery? I'm referring to the NiCad battery...motorhead said:Funny ... The belt clip my ICOM came with slips into the oval tab on back of battery case.
As viewed in pics, radio simply slides down on tab at top of clip & snaps into place ... NO screws of any kind on it ???
