Yep, just seen the cost of the bracket on Fowlers £281 inc delivery! £14,69 for the bearing, and 50p for the circlip!
Anyhow, managed to get the thing off in the end, using penetrating oil, a lever, and a mallet, with brute force, and swearing! I'm going to clean the main shaft with a bit of wet and dry, and when the tyre is fixed, slap some copper ease on the shaft, so hopefully, I won't have trouble again..   

Thanks for your help and advice folks, i'm going to look in about making some sort of bracket - just in case!

Thanks for the replies. When I come to fitting the Garmin looks like my choices are use the full Garmin power lead back to the battery, or cut and join satnav end of Garmin power lead into the Piaggio handlebar plug

Only apply heat to the alloy. If this solution is effeftive the bearing will not get hot only warm. If the plastic starts to melt then the whole assembly is too hot. Often the application of heat is benifical even after the thing has cooled down. The essential thing is to proceed carefully and gently as damage to the alloy arm will be expensive.

The bearing has plastic seals so could those.

I presume the plate rotates a bit on the spindle? Just to prove it's free in every other regard.

Have you tried penetrating fluid, and leave overnight?

The TomTom rider kit comes complete with a plug to connect to it, It was fairly straight forward to do, provided you tidied up the cables!

I like the hot air method, as I've got an industrial hot air gun, but wont it damage the bearing inside the bracket?

Excellent tool. However requires a high degree of skill to use as it is stronger than the alloy arm. Please apply pressure very slowly and carefully with plenty of penitrating oil. Too much initial pressure could easily crack the alloy. Sometimes a moderate pressure left on overnight will work on a difficult case. Try a little hot air on the alloy. Best of luck but do be careful.

A smart phone fitting kit comes with a new X10, however it's only half complete, the other half being dependent on the actual brand/model of smart phone. At least that's how I interpreted it. I assume that connector connects to what comes with the other half. I got the impression only dealers know how to do this. Never found any info about it on the net.

Does anyone know what type of connector this is? It isn't a direct fit to my Garmin 340 sat nav. Does not fit Superseal type connectors (the black ones with yellow and red seals) I could cut the plug off and join wires but was hoping to keep stock connector ( Accessory catalogue says the plug and mount is compatible with TomTom and Garmin navigators, but doesn't fit my Garmin) Thanks
