What, no GPS?
I have never had success with mounting a compass on any motorcycle.
Could not get a close to accurate read.
However, when I placed my inexpensive pocket compass (designed to be a zipper pull type) on top of the front brake master cylinder, it indicated close to magnetic north.
Easy to mount with a 4 mm screw.
If it does not work, easy to remove.
Will advise, after my trip to Sportsmans Warehouse, today.
BTW, I removed the thermometer, as it was inaccurate and not easy to read (without reading glasses), then I remounted clock to the center of the bars.
It has been very handy.

Not all who wander aimlessly are lost.
It'll be funny if the bike was just facing the correct direction when you mounted the compass - and no matter which way you turn it always says you are going in that direction (like a broken clock - always correct twice a day). We may never know cause you may never make it back home.
I've never been lost but there has been a lot of times that I didn't know where I was

I have a built in compass it's only failed me once when we camping in Yosemite valley. For some reason I never could keep a good reference there.
