    The toe piece on the adjustable, which looks like the same as the fixed version, sticks out the exact same amount as the stock tow piece. I assume you mean the distance from left to right as opposed to the length of the lever itself.

    Yes, the distance from left to right was what I was looking for. Thanks for the info. Looks like a quality shifter overall and definitely worth having the folding.

    So I've been using this phone holder for the last few days and its worked out really well. Its secure to the bars and the rubber mounting really absorbs the bumps. Today I used it on some FSR and it held up well, besides getting dusty. But mainly its used for booting around town. Now this is strictly for people for are too cheap to buy a gps and mount.

    I bought this little GPS mount for my Zumo. It is much lower profile than my others, and it lacks the big swingarm. You lose some of the adjustment capability with this one, but I thought it would be good. So far, it is a little lackluster.

    Don't get me wrong, it holds the GPS nicely. But mounting it on the center of the handlebars means it is a little low. I have to consciously look down to see the GPS. Also, with the limited adjustment, I lose a bit due to sun glare too. But, it works, and it doesn't interfere with the instrument cluster at all. I don't see much room to mount it elsewhere, but I may start playing around with that shortly.

    Is that a handlebar to 1/4"-20 mount? Same as a standard camera mount or camera tripod?

    Donkey,

    If that mount does not work out for you, RAM makes a short arm that is pretty compact.

    Sorry no pics yet on the Terra, but I have it mounted the same as on my Versys with one of these that attaches under the mirror.

    Ogre, thanks for the info on the short arm mount. I have only seen the long arm one before, which I have on all my other bikes. This might be worth a shot if I can get it comfortably over to the left side.

    I also found the triple clamp position way too low. Here's a left side bar mount long arm example. I've since gone to the right side, but it's similar. It's easy to get the GPS just outside the normal dash view on either side with this setup.

    So you guys with the higher mounts, how do they do in the wind?

    I just mounted my GPS with the higher RAM mount a couple days ago and have used it on my 25 mi commute to work since then. I haven't noticed any difference or any effect from the wind at all.

    I don't notice it. I think there are two reasons. First, the GPS is pretty low, it's likely below the flow over the shield. Second, the GPS, at least in my case, is at an angle that does not present as much wind load as one might think. I think this will vary widely depending on GPS and angle chosen. Here are two pics of my current Terra install that may provide some insight. Sorry for the mediocre cell phone shots.

    Yep, I'm convinced. Thanks for the pics. I originally didn't go that route because I was worried about the wind factor.

    I have had several bikes where I have it out off to the left in the breeze & bugs.
    Not an issue.

    The first bug that hit's my bike on any given ride has a 93% chance of obliterating the camera lens on the Montana. I've stopped using the camera as a result, it was just so so anyway. I really like the fact that a very well done wired mount is available from Garmin for $32. I'd pay a bit more for one that protected the camera lens though. On particular juicy or dirty rides the Montana comes off with a clean strip down the middle and covered in bugs everywhere else. :banghead:

    I bought the Touratech fixed length lever (which is listed on their website as being F650/G650/TR650 OEM length) but when I hold it along side the OEM lever there is quite a big difference between the length of the two, and the tip on the Touratech will be so far up my boot I doubt I will be able to make good shifts. I'll have to try exchanging it for the adjustable length shifter.

    Can you move the toe piece to a different hole?

    No the toe piece does not mount horizontally through the holes on the lever. Those holes are there I presume to reduce weight.

    I am not a big guy, just 5' 9.5", size 10 shoe/boot and 32" inseam. My fixed length lever worked perfectly on the COBDR and provides a little extra room for my Sidi Rain boots. When riding at home with less bulky footwear, I never notice any problems at all with the extra lever length. In fact, it is a big plus for me!

    That's good to know. I'm the same as you and have trouble getting the toe of my boot under the stock shifter sometimes. Looks like one of these shifters is next on the list.
