Sat Nav position
on: 05 September, 2016, 09:43:44 PM
Hi All,  Just got my CBF recently and getting it sorted for my first weekender on it, but my old sat nav case and attachments are a little low.

Can anyone recommend a attachment kit and case, even better a pic would be great.

Cheers

No worries mate. If that was on the high st. like Currys or somewhere they'd charge around 30 quid I reckon. Really cheap online and decent quality too. My phone hasnt fallen out yet lol.

I've been trying to fit my phone to the bike. I considered either making a bracket to fit under the windscreen or stick to the fairing. I ended up using a suction mount that came with my cheapo eBay SatNav and managed to clip a cheap waterproof phone case I had laying around anyway. Works a treat and didn't cost much. I also secured it with a lanyard, just for safety.

finally got it sorted 2 cheap waterproof sat nav covers, both less then 10 and allows a standard sat nav to be used.  Cannot attach picture.

My preferred option as it is high up and does not take your eye off the road.  It is fixed onto the fairing between the screen and fairing via a screw or Velcro trap.

The second is one I used before on my old Fazer, but is too low to use on the CBF, this simply clips onto the handle bars

Finally worked out how to upload pictures.

Top holder, holds the satnav and is above the dials and secured to fairing between screen. This means I can look at satnav while still keeping eye on the road.

Bottom holder holds my phone, some cash and notes about the roads / towns as a pointer on the move. Fixed on handle bar, this has worked very well for my last two tours.

A few more pictures of the bits I used and how it looks like when riding. 

This layout gives a clear view of the road and satnav, as well as the dials, and does not take your eyes off the road like the ones fitted to the handlebars.


A) Waterproof Sat Nav holder
B) Arm
C) Velcro strip with adhesive side
D) Rubber Washer
E) Trim Clip

All could be had from ebay for less then 10 in total.  :046:

Note, this does require a small hole to be drilled into the fairing, which can be blocked off using the trim clip when not in use. 




Disclaimer, I have done this on my bike and worked very well, anyone doing this will be at their own risk.
