It is personal preference but Ive always found Evotech products quality, fit and finish as good as any and better than most. Satnav depends on whether you wanted above or below the display. Navihalter, Engimoto, Evotech, Ducati and iconicparts to name but a few all do mounts. Most suffer with some sort of vibration on all but the smoothest roads. Ive tried the Ducati and the Engimoto mounts, both worked well enough.

  Second that although would also add SW Motech Satnav mount - that one doesn't wobble at all.  I'm waiting to see where my fully loaded '18 plate 950 pops up - it was sold to Motoline (aka 44 Teeth 'dem of Youtube fame) down in Hampshire last month, and it's not on their website anymore.

Thanks guys, Bmwal, does the swmotech mount obscure the dash when the sat nav is fitted?

The way I had it it didn't obscure my dash - certainly it was no worse obscuring than the high level mount I tried first that rattled around like buggery.....things like obscuring the dash would be more than my OCD nature could take.....I'm just over 6ft, and height will have some impact obvs. but no, for me, it was fine.

I have made my own TTrider mount, and mounted directly on the steering plate. No vibrations at all. Needed only some longer bolts and made a pair of bushings out of aluminum 10 mm pipe.
