Here's a little write up on how I added some nice, IMO, accessories to my GT. Enjoy!
It just wouldn't be right, afterall, for me not to do something
to the GT.
Pretty easy stuff made easier with the accessibility of the bike itself.
I installed the Zumo 550, Autocom Active-Plus (kit 200), GXM-30 XM, SPOT messenger, Gerbing connections (F&R), Centech fuse panel, and bar risers. That's it. Done.
Here ya go.
Overview of the GXM-30, Zumo, SPOT.
SPOT is in place via the RAM handlebar mount and arm that comes with the Zumo 550. The SPOT RAM cradle is from Cyclenutz.
The Zumo is mounted with the stock BMW mount with the Touratech locking mount added to that.
The bar risers are by Heli Bar.
Everything was a direct bolt on with zero mods necessary except a realignment of the holes to secure the Touratech mount to the BMW mount.
The GXM-30 is mounted via a ZTechnik Tech Mount.
Autocom and Centech mounted with tons of space to spare under the passenger seat.
Here you can see the relay that gets it's power via a tapped lead from the accessory socket. I did this to reduce wire run. It would be just as easy to run 2 wires to the front and hook in to the GPS connector with an available BMW "repair connector." Again, I went the shorter wire run method as the accessory socket is less than 12 inches below the relay location.
You can also see in this photo the front Gerbing connection and the rear passenger Autocom lead and Gerbing connection.
Here is the passenger set up when in use.
B2B mount with velcro. I planned to have it in the glove box but the cable ended up about 5 inches too short to close the cover properly without pulling the wire.
Of course, push to talk.
Jamie and I ran up to Tahoe the other day and all systems worked flawlessly. We had to stop to make a minor volume adjustment to Jamie's headset but that was it for the duration. We are both running custom molded ear plug speakers and it is just amazing how wonderful it all is with that set up.
Thanks for looking!
