Show your GPS & Mount setup on your Beta, KTM, Husky, Berg?

Recommended Posts

Got any pics you can share of your GPS & Mount setup on your Beta, KTM, Husky, Berg?

I'm looking at Trailtech Voyager (mounted) and Garmin (portable) C60S GPS type units and wondering what the rest of you have come up with that works well for you.

The Voyager idea looks good but I'd probably end up completely replacing my Beta digital display with it; then a friend mentioned he thought the hard mounted units are not kept as current as the portables in terms of software, updates, maps, etc.

Requirements:

  • Rugged
  • Reliable
  • Easy to read
  • Good Value
  • Decent software

Photos? Ideas? Let's see yours. Thanks.

I made this bracket, it mounts to the upper pinch bolts on the left side then uses a standard RAM mount

These pics are on my Yamaha WR but I have similar mounts on my other bikes. I mass produced different ones for all the bikes, some incorperated blinker stays for the street legal bikes.

I run a Garmin GPSMAP 478, probably the most flexible and functional unit you can/could get. Big screen, lots of memory, 20,000 waypoints....

I just mounted a Voyager to my 2011 TE511 husky, i modified the mount and tapped the top clamp. It is PERFECT for my use.

Awesome info from this unit. Amazing.

Very upgradeable via mini SD flash. Already upgraded it once, was stupid simple. I have beat the crap out of this unit for 400 miles of single track, no issues so far and Trailtech is very good about support.

I first tried mounting mine to the triple clamp, but I didn't like it:

So I moved to a standard bar mount:

Here is a similar thread on KTMtalk with quite a variety of solutions:

Hey Ride, is that a screen shot from the Voyager? I would love to be able to overlay GPS tracks on sat. photos real time in the woods.

      My 390 looked as though the shift shaft was leaking oil after a couple hours of riding. The shifter got stuck in the downward position and was unable to move or come up. After taking out the screw that threads through the middle of the shift shaft, then putting it back in, i was able to shift fine. I will be checking tonight if the splines on the shift shaft are worn down. Has anyone had this issue before?

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.

      Hey guys,
       
      My mechanic says my crank rod bearing is bad on my 2013 Husaberg TE 250.  I'm browsing http://www.hotrodsproducts.com/ProductInfo.aspx?item_id=5626 and I see this kit that is compatible with 2008 - 2011 KTM 250 EXC BIKE,2008 - 2011 KTM 250 MXC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC-W BIKE
       
      Is that compatible with my bike?
       
      Let me know,
       
      thanks!

      Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

      Hello to all the Husaberg owners and Thumper Talk members. As stated in an earlier thread by one of the TT admins, Brian Bosch, we "may" have an opportunity to get out of the "exotics" portion of TT and get our very own area to post and reply with Husaberg questions/comments!
      If you are a TT memeber and a Husaberg owner, let's get this rolling and see if there are enough of us! Let's try and do just one (1) post each so they can get an accurate count. Just simply state if you are a Husaberg owner, year and model.
      I will start this off......
      I am a proud owner!
      2010 Husaberg FE450
