I was thinking about using one of the xm mounts from Cycle Gadgets that goes on top of the clutch resevoir . but with the Tulsa windshield , and the handle bars turned all the way to the right , it looks like this mount might hit the windshield.
Anybody out there have this combination, and if so is it a problem?
It's hard to tell from the few pictures just how tall this mount is .
I thought about using a Ram Mount, but that goes where the Butler Mug mount is attached.
Any help will be appreciated.
Joe.

Yup, I've got the XT mounted on top of the clutch reservior and I also have the Tulsa extra tall windshield. When turned all the way, the radio misses the windshield by about 2 inches. Nice set up.

Thanks JB
\ I wanted to order one , sometimes the dealers/salespeople know these things,,,,,and sometimes they don't have a clue . I figured if someone on here had a problem with it , i would know about it sooner.

XM-Mount

Mine is mounted on the handlebar grip clamps using a small bracket. It should be low enough so as not to hit the shield in a turn.

GO TO www.cyclegadgets.com... they have every thing to hard wire, mount on top of the brake / clutch cover, and the antenna also has a place to fit... all this is out of the way and works very well with the Tulsa tall 8) 8)

I have a tall Tulsa shield, & Butler Mug on the right handlebar. I used the Ram mount for my Sirius Sportster. I picked up a couple of longer Stainless Steel screws to mount it with the Butler mount. Worked out fine.
