If your interested in making more of these, I would like to buy one, good effort, by the way, pity BMW didn't put as much thought into a better bracket.

The lack of a locking mount is another design omission which BMW continues not to address

Ditto for me. Easy install and although not 100percent theft proof it will detour the occasional passing thief while making a pit stop somewhere!  :152:

How easy is the Wunderlich to fit do you have to remove anything on the mount to fit it? Some pics would be good. :028:

For me the install, was a little fiddly, i lost one of the spacers, so had to reuse some spacers from ram.
Some things I would do to make it easier.
1 remove the windscreen
2. Place some cover over the engine so if you drop anything it's not lost.
3. Ensure you have enough free cable to turn the mount upside down, so you can fit all the bits, rarther than trying to do it a bit at a time.
4. Use tape to hold parts in place.

Basically you take it the 4 bolts on the mount you have now
Then replace them and the washers with ones supplied. Then with the mount with the longer bolts threads pointing up ,  I would use tape to hold them all in place.
Now add a spacer on each , the mount,lock to the rider right, and finally another small washer.
Some more tape to hold it all together, so you can try and insert the 4 bolts, without losing the little washer, and tighten.

The instructions talk about using locking fluid to hold the nut for the the tumbler ,I didn't bother, I just tightened it up. Will see how long it last before loose.

I really think wunderlich could provide a spare spacer in case you drop one and a small tube of threadlock considering the price

Sorry no pics as it's installed already
