    Simple Fix

    Jim (t6pilot) sent me the photos of his solution - which seems pretty simple and effective to me - and has asked me to post them here.

    When the windscreen is down, the screw can't be removed and the release button can't be pressed in. Simple and effective. Now, someone needs to make a farkled-up screw ...

    You got it

    Black sharpie helps to hide screw, but then when you drop the screw makes it harder to find, ask me how I know!

    Locking the Navigator on a RT LC

    My solution, with pictures, to include the navigator mount in the BMW central locking system.

    http://www.motor-forum.nl/forum/list...00RT-LC-1.html

    It's in Dutch and I can make an English version when needed.
    For the outher cable I used a general gearbox cable for a bicycle.
    Remarks and questions are welcome.

    I've been meaning to integrate a lock with the on-board central locking system for some time. I even acquired a spare actuator off of a wrecked K1600. There was a post I had found with instructions for doing this but my actuator ended up being slightly larger and therefore requiring relocation under the front cover and that's what's held me up (need to fabricate an arm to get the interference part lined up properly). I'd love to see details on how you did it with a cable when you get a chance. Please feel free to post it up here. Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    The lock motor in the left stowage compartment in the fairing is used to move the home-made latch in the navigator mount with the help of a cable.
    Details of mounting the cable are shown in picture no. 6 from the top, it shows the bottomside of the left stowage compartment.
    The inner cable, a Reely 10405 bowden cable, is attached with a 2 mm drilled hole in the housing of the stowage compartment.
    The inner cable is available from http://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/...en-Cable-Reely
    The outer cable is attached to the arm of the actuator with 2 tie wraps 4 mm (kabelbinder).

    Please post an English version! This seems like a more elegant solution than others have shared.

    Is here an app for locating "better places" or since I'm so fine, do I just populate places where people look like me? Does "better place" refer to food options, weather, income, annual rainfall, average temperatures or what. I'm confused. At the "Where To" prompt I entered, Better Place, and got no useful guidance.

    I will try to do my best and remember English is not my native language.
    I already explained the cable and mounting to the left stowage compartment in the fairing in a previous post.
    The latch is shown in picture 1 and 2 and is made by glueing together 2 pieces of 15 x 2 x 50 mm aluminium strips with 2-component metal glue.
    The metal strip is available in any do-it-yourself store here in the Netherlands.
    The result is that the latch is 4 mm thick and 15 mm high.
    The connector to the inner cable is the brass inside of a screw terminal and glued to the latch with 2-component metal glue.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw_terminal
    The guidance slot for the latch is a modified existing slot in fairing and is shown in picture 3 and 4.
    A piece of the 15 x 2 mm aluminium strip + a piece of ~0.6 mm thick hard plastic of a blister package (out of my garbage can) are used to reduce the width of the existing slot in the fairing.
    These 2 pieces are attached with 2-sided tape into the existing slot.
    To adjust the height of the slot a piece of 2 mm thick (green) hard plastic is glued with general 2-component glue in the existing slot (see picture 4).
    In picture 5 the latch is mounted in te modified slot.
    Picture 7 shows the mounting of the outer cable to the fairing with a tie wrap and a tie wrap mounting block.
    Picture 8 and 9 shows the final result with 'open' = unlocked state and 'gesloten' = locked state.

    The advantage of this solution is that the lock of the navigator mount can be controlled with the Central Locking switch on the right handlebar or the Radio-Operated key.
    I hope this short description + the pictures wil do the job.
    Remarks/additions/questions are always welcome.

    If you take copy the URL (http://www.motor-forum.nl/forum/list...00RT-LC-1.html) and then open it in Google, then Google will translate it for you from Dutch to English. I tried it, and it's very readable and clear.

    That does work remarkably well in this case. Thanks!
