Good Morning Folks,

I recently bought a 2019 BMW C650GT Maxi-Scooter in Franklin, TN, USA and I’d like to install the BMW GPS Mounting Bracket Hardware and BMW Navigator VI/Cradle which I ordered from Max BMW. I viewed several other discussions on GPS installation on the 2015 and earlier C650GT, however my issue is with the black plastic plate on the top of the steering tree where the BMW GPS mounting bracket hardware is to be installed. The 2015 and earlier models of the C650GT had a silver-colored plastic plate on the top of the steering tree that was attached with a single hex screw, and easily removed accordingly. Unfortunately, the 2016 and later C650GT has a black plastic cover that has NO visible screw(still), top or bottom, to remove it during installation of the GPS GPS mounting bracket hardware. I’ve ordered a BMW shop manual DVD, however, it won’t arrive for at least a few weeks.

Has anybody removed the black plastic cover on top of the steering tree on a 2016 or later C650GT? If so, could you please tell me how you removed it without damaging the cover? Also, if anybody has instructions and/or photos of the BMW GPS mounting bracket hardware installation on a 2016 or later C650GT could you please post them here?

I've attached a photo of the black plastic steering tree cover below. Thanks very much for your assistance.

Ride Safe,
Jim
