Anyone use one of these? They look good and the mount plate is predrilled for the standard 4 screw AMPS mount pattern. I'll probably order at least 1 for my GPS and maybe another for my radio. They make them in other configurations as well. I found them in the Kuryakyn Catalog, item named eCaddy Deluxe.

Thanks, and I am aware it's not a Kury product. I found it funny they had Leader stuff in their catalog. :D

I have it....works good. The connection between the 2 pcs. could be a bit tighter though.

I have a power plug in the neck...so it's really east to slip it out and unplug it. The bracket looks fine on the bars all by itself. I really didn't care for the looks of some other mounting systems. .

Just stirrin' the pot here.

The original link is to Viking not Kury :wink:

Viking lists the part for less than Leader, but I didn't look at shipping costs.

For those that have actually bought the Leader mount, where have you installed it along the handlebars?

I'm trying to decide between this mount and the RAM mount system for my Garmin 296 and it seems like the RAM mount would afford me a better viewing angle of the screen....opinions? Pictures? Thanks!

Well folks, trying to bring to life a post that went to sleep w/o answers:

My specific question in trying to decide between eCaddy deluxe with Ultra-Tilt:
How is the vibration, does it handle well..

As far as viewing angles, based on pics that I've seen on their website; they seem to provide most of it.

This looks good versus RAM on the beast.

I bought the tilt but don't use it. I have the Zumo mounted in the center of the bars and it works great. The only thing I have left to do is finish up my wiring harness so that I can detach the GPS power and remove that gawd-aweful Garmon cradle when the GPS isn't on the bike. :D

The only issue I've had with the eCaddy -- and it was my fault -- is that I didn't have the retaining screw tighted down and it vibrated out. Even without the screw the Zumo settles into the eCaddy just fine and doesn't rattle. It does vibrate a little at certain RPMs but the screw wouldn't change that. I've thought about putting a small piece of foam rubber in the bottom of the bracket for it to settle on.

As far as the missing screw, it is a bit hard to access with the risers I'm using but nothing major. The only reason I didn't have it tightened down is because I didn't have the right allen key on hand.
