Lifting the GPS slightly on the 1200LC

Post by knutk »

On my 1200GSA, none TFT, the GPS made the top of the revcounter not visible, so I needed to move the cradle slightly higher on the GPS mounting bar.
As the lock for the GPS is a bit bulky, it also needed to be moved slightly forward in order for the lock to clear the mounting bar.

This is a perfect project for a 3D printer, so I came up with this solution:

The final version printed in ABS:

And here it shows the test prototype, made in grey material and tilted forward, for easier spotting.

If anyone wants to give it a try, send me a PM with email address in order to submit the STL file.

What a great idea will certainly send a message to try out the STL. :) :) :) :) can you post a picture of what it looks like, when looking at it from a riding position please.

The 1200 is no longer in my possession, but I found this picture in my archive. It shows my view when riding the bike. I'm 180cm.

Most excellent thank you very much, I can really see this being even more useful, as I use the Nav6 for a speedo, and it seems that being a bit higher, will enable me to look through it better, without having to look down, I am 6ft 4. :) :)
