Fitting Zumo 660 to OEM BMW mount on K1300GT

This question seems to come up quite a lot - so I decided to photograph the stages of the fitting today. Firstly you need to buy the 2 OEM parts from your local BMW dealer. These comprise the mounting bracket for the 'proper' Navigator GPS - Part # 01297697749 ($26) and the Repair Cable for connecting in the power - Part # 83300413585 ($15.58). You may also need some electrical tape and crimper with 22-18 snap connectors if you don't already have some (a few bucks at your local Home Depot). I also bought 4 x 3/8" nylon spacers ($0.60c a pair) to raise the Zumo mount up high enough for the cable 'bump' to clear the OEM BMW bracket.

Word of advice - the fitting instructions that comes with the OEM bracket show connecting up the GPS unit after mounting the bracket on the handlebar - I have to say this is difficult! Trying to get the nuts on the end of the screws 'in-place' is difficult - you may find it easier to put the Zumo mount on the bracket first before fitting.....

1. Remove the existing cover plate from the back of the handlebar riser.
2. Remove the battery cover
3. Fish out the Can-Bus GPS connector and remove the protective cover (it will be ty-wrapped under the bracket in front of the battery)
4. Cut the middle wire of the 3 in the Repair Cable short and tape up the end.
5. Connect wire #1 to the earth / ground cable on the Zumo wiring harness using the snap connectors
6. Connect wire #3 to the fused live (red) cable on the zumo harness.
7. Ty-wrap the cables into a neat loop leaving enough for the mount to reach the bracket. I also looped the auxiliary cables over as well - to keep them accessible from the bike if needed without having to remove the battery cover again.
8. Bolt the zumo mount to the OEM bracket and the bracket to the handebar using the bolts provided.
9. Replace the battery cover, clip in the Zumo and turn on the ignition.
10. Hey presto - it works! Power will go on-off with the ignition (delayed off).

I've provided pics as well - let me know if something is unclear. As you will see from the finished pics, the unit sits right below and forward of the dash - so no need to take eyes off road whilst driving as always in your peripheral vision...

Cheers, KB

That was definitely the part number when I purchased it last year - maybe BMW have updated the part (or just the #)? Price sounds pretty much the same too....

Re: Fitting Zumo 660 to OEM BMW mount on K1300GT

Thanks for posting this info with pics..Always worth a thousand , I will be using this to fit a Zumo 220 on a RAM Mount to what appears to be Suburban-Machinery Risers on my newly acquired K1300GT.

Was the repair cable easily obtained from the BMW dealer?

Yes - was a stock item at my local dealer - straight off the shelf. Good luck!

Thanks again finally had some rain on the east coast which gave me a reason to hook up the GPS cables... Like you said Presto! It works.

Hi. Is there any way to clean up the cable mess and put the garmin on the display shelf behind the windscreen? Preferably without any cables visible.
