I am going to buy a Zumo 550 for my 2002 LT. This will be my first GPS. Is there anything else I should order with the unit or does it come complete.
Thank you for any help.

Need a way to attach it to the LT. It comes with a RAM car mounting setup and a RAM handlebar clamp and a clutch/brake reservoir (but not LT) bracket.

Many folks have very nice setups for their LT. I took the simple route of getting a plate that goes over the clutch reservoir cover from Mounting innovations:

Item Name: Motorcycle Reservoir Cover with Side Ball
Item Number: RAM-B-346U

+1 on the clutch reservoir mount. I put my Zumo on my 2002 LT that way and love it. A lot of people mount them on dash boards right under the wind screen, but I wanted it to be an easier reach to use all the functions that come with the Zumo.

Also +1 on www.zumoforums.com It's an excellent source for all things Zumo. If you're going to use a bluetooth headset with your Zumo you'll definitely want to do some reading about the limitations of the Zumos built in BT. It's only mono out even if you have stereo headsets.

The holes in the handle bar clamp that comes with it will line up with 2 of the screws in the clutch/brake res cover. Just got to get longer screws from the hardware store.

Thank you for the answers. I am looking forward to being confused on a whole new level.

I used a clutch reservoir mount, and it seems a simple, good way to go.

Are you planning on pairing it with a phone? Are you using it with an intercom?
