Cellphone Mount

I tend to go places for the first time pretty often...and pulling over to take out my phone to check my gps every time I get lost is a bit of a hassle. Ideally, I'd like something that sat dead center on my bars, and rather low as well. I've looked at the "RAM fork stem base" one and it looked pretty sweet.




Figured I'd ask to see what other people had before I went and purchased this. Any input would be appreciated--thanks.

That stem mount sucks balls. Big Harry balls. Had it on the VFR and hated it. Always wanted to rotate and come loose on me.
I would try and find a stem mount (with RAM ball) that doesn't have a lever. Or mount it somewhere other than your stem.

For holding the phone, RAM-MOUNT X-GRIP all the way. It's been rock solid for me for years.

I use a RAM mount that replaces one of the screws that holds down the bar bracket. If you look at my past posts, you'll see some pics. It works really well.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

I didn't even think Ram mount offered the stem for the 919...I got the u-joint that goes around the bar and love it. One of the best "mods" for the bike.

Same as dave, I went with one of the Ubolts and its awesome. I have mine center and low so it doesn't block any of the gauges but still good for a quick glance.

Also I went on a 250ish mile cruise a couple weeks where I was at 75+ for extended periods of time and the phone never budged. I do have the oem fly screen, which seems to direct air just above where the phone is mounted

I use a generic minura camera mount thats metal, and a nootle (sp?) Cell phone mount with standard thread on back. This goes on my handle bar...putting it on the stem would seem to make it too low for me.

I used to have a bracketron mount...but after 3 trusty years...it got a little loose for my taste...so its been relegated to the trek with a turtle frame mount.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

+1 on the Ram X-Grip Mount as it will easily accommodate the Samsung Galaxy S5 in it's Otterbox.

I don't think there'll be any issues but safety wiring the case might also be good insurance.

+1 on the xgrip, very secure and easy to take the phone off even with gloves. Good for all speeds the 919 can go

Not a bad Idea. I have a rubber band that that I use if I know I am going down some extra bumpy roads
