Maurice, I have the same unit and I mounted it to the Iron Aces RG Mount and wired it into the AUX switch.
I did have to raise the tank to get the wiring run tho.
It's not really that hard to do.
Hope this helps Bro.

@Mike U , thanks so much for making mention of our Road Glide Mount!!

@MASQUEDMANN ....just to add to what Mike had to say, I'd also consider one of our Supplemental 12v Power Points for running the power to your Zumo 660. As Mike eluded to, this 12v Power Point would allow you to control power to the 660 via the ACC Switch on the dash. The following link will take you to the product page on our website where you can read more about the 12v Power Point.

Supplemental 12v Power Point - Iron Aces Speed Shop

Hope this helps but certainly let me know if you have any other questions.

Lindsey, it's my pleasure mentioning the Iron Aces RG Mount.
It works excellent on my 2012 RG.
It's a very great mount and I also mentioned in my PM to MASQUEDMANN that you are a Member of Our Forum and Owner of Iron Aces Speed Shop and that you always take great care of All of Our Members when they purchase anything from you.
It's always a pleasure doing business with Iron Aces Speed Shop.

I also use the iron aces mount. but I added another swivel to it that allows me to tilt my 660 up/back/left/right as needed.

if you use the garmin wiring harness, you can run the aux plug to the audio input on your hk (this is obviously for 2013 and older), while running everything through the instrument nacelle and then down under the tank. removing the tank is easy, and there is a plastic channel under it. remove the lid, run your wiring, replace the lid. wiring is nice and protected. get the aux plug from iron aces, and you can plug into the aux plug under the seat and your mount will be powered by the aux switch on your dash.

it only takes a little longer to do it right, and then it's done and you won't have to do it again.

this first pic shows the swivel. $15 from amazon.



this pic shows the routing of the wiring. yes, the zip tie is blue. its what I had .... it would be very similar for a rushmore model, except you would have to purchase the additional aux input harness for the back of the infotainment and would actually be a cleaner install cause you wouldn't see this wire all the time. eventually, I will be sending my radio to iron cross audio and getting the rear aux input install done.


I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
