I installed bar end mirrors on my r1200r and I am going to use the stock mirror perches. I have adapters that will change the 10m/1.25 left hand thread to 10m/1.25 right hand thread. Screw a 1" ram ball mount into the mirror perch. You will need a ram ball mount clamp and a ram B-347Ur rectangular mounting plate for the 660. If you do not modify the cable that comes with the Zumo 660 motorcycle cradle, the cradle will have to be permanently attached to your bike.
I purchased a wiring kit that allowed me to cut the length of the cable that comes out of the 660 cradle down to about 1 foot and use only the two power wires. I attached a waterproof quick disconnect connector two those power wires. Used the opposite sex connector on the cable that came with the kit. On my Moto Guzzi, I ran the cable under the tank and wired a 2 prong sae connector that plugs into the Battery Tender pigtail. I can remove all of the gps mounting stuff from the bike and install it only when I need it.
On the R1200R I am going to use the power lead that is near the steering head and use the universal gps power connector from Touratech. I have a waterproof quick disconnect connector that I will attach to that cable so I can remove all of the gps mounting stuff when I do not need the gps.
BMW sells a navigator mount for the 660 and Navi IV (which is a 660 of a different color)
Here is the 660 installed:
Rode with the 660 for about two weeks but hated using the touchscreen with gloves (too much attention away from the road), so I exchanged it for the Navi IV, whose mount has large, haptic buttons on the left. And they're backlit.
I do not like how this mount obstructs pretty much the whole instrument cluster. On my F650 the Touratech mount for the Garmin 2610 places the GPS low enough so I can read all the gauges easily. I am wondering if there are other options or how difficult it would be to make one.
I have Sat Nav V on my 2014 bike ( of course the clocks are different ) however I turned the mount upside down and now I can see my clocks clearly. It may work on your set up.
If you would like a photo I can post one to-morrow.
