    K1300S Motorsport GPS mounting?

    Just purchased a 2015 K1300S Motorsport edition bike. Looking to transfer my BMW Navigator Street, previously mounted on my 2012 R1200GS, but a) this bike doesn't appear to have an aux power receptacle, and b) mounting hardware might be problematic given stock handlebars.

    Anybody have experience, suggestions, photos that would be helpful?

    I removed the center BMW Roundel and screwed in a Verholen Ram Ball.

    The GPS plug is in front of the battery.

    BikePenR is another option.

    You're right it's not cheap. I lucked out and found one used.

    Before the Verholen Ball I used half of a Ram handle bar clamp attached to the lower half the the OEM BMW bar clamp.
    I had to buy longer screws.

    Hi, just bought a mount for the handlebar that works with RAM mount, it's pretty slick and works like a charm!
