Phone holder

I'm pretty happy with this new phone holder from Amazon.

Enkeeo Bike Mount Universal Motorcycle Cell Phone Holder Cradle with 360 Degree Rotation, Rubber Grips for iPhone 7/ 7 Plus/ 6S/ 6S Plus, Samsung Gala https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WGSR1VJ..._xgUOXmeceWvws

I just did some local riding with it and it's great at speeds of 35-40 mph. I'll post an update when I have a chance to take it on the highway, but it's inexpensive and it seems to work well.

Glad you like it. I just got a ram X grip. It is top notch made in usa too. Set me back 50 bucks but it is very high quality.

I even got a mount that you take one of the four bolts on the riser and replace it with a new bolt and a 1 inch ram ball to hold the phone

I have the RAM mount as well and highly recommend. On my Harley I am using their u-bolt mount to attach the ball near the left handle. I also have one for my BMW bike (using adapter for clutch reservoir cover) and my truck (using suction cup).

I use Quad Lock on my bike. The system is super easy to setup on your handle bars or mirror stems. The case simply locks onto the bike and can be rotated vertically or horizontally at will. There is zero wiggling of the phone, and it feels super secure. The best part is they have mounts for just about everything, so the same system can be used in your car, armband for the gym, your bicycle, and do on.

You can find it on amazon.

I use a small magnetic tank bag (spare gloves / smokes etc) and it has a clear pocket in the lid - ideal for fitting the phone for satnav purposes.

I've been using the RAM mounts on the Street. The X-grip has worked well for me.


Instead of the U-bolt mount I've been using a two part plastic mount -


. It's a little bit bulky, and the U-bolt mount or gripping jaw would probably be easier to find a spot for on the bars. Of course I could also cut the wire ties on the cables, mount the base however I want, then strap the cables down again.


I've tried the H-D phone holding system. On the Street it puts a ball mount on the handle bar clamp. The ball mount for the Sportster uses screws into clam shell on either control cluster. The problem is that the phone holders don't impress me, and the ball is undersized so I can't use my RAM X-grip.

I did exactly the same thing, but it didn't work out because the phone would overheat and shut down in the hot Texas summers. Had to go with a handlebar mount one so there would be airflow.
