Finally got a phone mount on my 1500!!

Post by Quick Cal »



I know it's no earth shattering news. But I've put this off way too long. I actually had this mount on my 1200. Now it's finally on the 1500.

It's a Ram Quick Grip. It's, awesome. There will be no loosing the phone like you can with the "X-Grip". I also have a short extension. If I had a bit longer extension I could video through the windshield,,,lol. That just may be an option. This has an infinite range of adjustments. I just need to go to the hardware store and get some rubber washers and black screws to tidy up the install.

The only thing is I hated to have to drill 2 holes in the fader control cover. But my ocd wouldn't allow me to mount my phone on one side of the handle bars. I would probably fall over,,,lol.

Now I need to hook up a charger.

The phone will fit, it's the reel if cable you need to carry that's the problem!

Previous owner had stuck a 3" round metal disk on the panel above the stereo, for his sat nav.

I bought one of these magnetic mounts for my phone, and it's absolutely brilliant. Very easy to use and good firm attachment. Can use the phone in portrait or landscape mode:
