I am a new Goldwing GL1800 owner and want to install my zumo 660. I don't care about running thru the stereo system as I use a wireless headset. Just want to know where to connect the power (switched). Can someone guide me here? Thanks.

Under the left front storage pocket is a black rubber boot, It has two pin connectors in it, one is red, one is white. The red one is the switched power. The white one is the audio in.

Or if you like and depending on where you mount the Zumo you can run wire from the ACC terminal at the fuse block to anywhere.

Does not make much difference with the Zumos though, as when you turn the power off they switch to battery power automatically and you have to turn them off anyway.

Welcome Bud. You can connect back to the ACC terminal at the fuse block, or easier to do is splice into the ACC wire under the fairing left pocket.

Really appreciate the info! Is there a manual or other resource that will guide me in romoving panels, etc to access the fuse panel? Don't know where it is. Thanks again.

You could go on this site to the front page of the forum . To the bikers workshop. Find the article on changing the air filter. That will show you how to remove the left pocket box. If you are mounting the zumo on the left bar it will be best to access the power there, install a power plug into the left box and then plug the zumo in there. The power plug comes with the pin adapter that plugs right in.

If going to mount on the right bar, best to pull the seat, etc and run to the fuse box, you can even temp pull the wires under the shelter without removal.

If you go that route you will need to purchase a manual. They are like 75 dollars at various places....wingstuff is one.

I installed a center mount and touratech lock for my Zumo 665. The bracket it mounted to was purchased from "Wingman" in Portland Oregon. It is an angle bracket with holes that match the zumo cradle. You remove the plastic ignition key cover and remove the 2 screws, place this bracket in, screw it down, replace plastic and your done.

Looks clean sitting midline.

I mounted my GPS bracket on the sun shield over the gauges. The GPS stands just above the shield in the center. It doesn't interfere with vision through the windshield at all. I mounted the GPS on my 1500 in about the same place as 1peter did on his 1800. I prefer to have the GPS mounted on the centerline of the bike because this reduces the tendency to allow the bike to drift to the side when one looks at an offset GPS.

I know this is an old post, but can someone shed some light on the "angle bracket" ? I want to mount a Zumo 665 midline on my GL1800 and this bracket sounds like it would do the trick. Anyone know who makes it or where I can get one?

Thanks!

Dan
