iphone mount

Post by k2suzuki »

How is everyone managing this? I want to have my iphone map while I cruise, but cannot figure out the best way to mount it. Probably the best way is the fork stem mount but then I need to put a hole on the fuse cover. There are not enough room for the handlebar mount as I have the European model handlebar. I sure do not want to use the mirror mount. If the only choice is to make a hole on the fuse cover then I would greatly appreciate any advise on how to do this clean. I might as well buy another fuse cover and modify it. Thanks in advance for your insights.

Something like this would allow you to retain the mirror if that is your concern about using the mirror mount.

I have a ram ball on the mirror mount on my ProLink and like it for mounting my phone.

I('ve not experienced it first hand, but I know of folks who have gone through several phones because they didn't tolerate the vibrations of a handlebar mount. You might want to research this first.

Either garage is too small or we have too many bikes. Or Momma's car needs to go outside.

I decided to drill a hole on the fuse cover and mount the Quad Lock fork stem mount together with their vibreation dampener. It works well. I am happy with the results.

Tank bag with old-fashioned maps work well too. Keep your phone in your pocket.
