Having seen the link to the sat nave mount here I went and had a look and took the plunge, although a little on the steep side for a bit of metalwork I must say I was mightily impressed with the quality and fit when it arrived. I favour the Powerbronze double bubble screen as it really takes the wind to a smooth flow when set in one of the middle settings for my six feet three height.

The Sat Nave mount fitted perfectly and although it came with 4 new screws of slightly longer length than the Kawasaki originals they had very weakly defined hex heads and slipped a bit with the Allen key, so I went back to the better quality Kawasaki hex headed screws that fitted fine and covered the depth needed with no difficulties.

This now left me with the original Kawasaki satnav mount which I have now been able to add my universal waterproof phone case mount to so if I want to use Calimoto anytime i don't need to drag out the tank bag to slide in the top. Win Win and now I'm triple screening! Who needed to look at the road anyway?  :087:

the person who sells these is on Facebook and does a discount for members on the Kawasaki z1000sx page  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/kawasaki-z1000sx-Ninja-satnav-Camera-mount-GPS/274645670831

The one in the ebay ad does not look the same as the Iconic Parts advert.

I have had a look at the one on eBay - and yes it is different - the Iconic one doesn't have a ram mount and is a plate that is hinged. Good saving though on the one on eBay if it does the same job for you, I just wonder if the lack of a pivot point would limit the screen positioning even further than the Iconic one.

I have a 2020 performance tourer with the sat nav mount as fitted with a Tom Tom and find it to be great you can see it clearly and no dipping of your head
The only niggly bit is getting your key in and out of the ignition but as the bike is awesome it doesn't bother me at all

The link you provided does not show that and their website only shows their standard Ram mounts. Happy to be shown otherwise.
