I prized the magnet off the bottom of a parts dish and epoxied it to the bottom of a neoprene beer coozy. Holds up to a 32 oz. styrofoam drink cup, and holds up to anything short of an elbow -- though I have lost the original unit to an elbow...

 That is downright cool JR,
                                       Now all you need is a magnet on the bottom of a potato chip/snack bag and your all set :rotflmao:

Nothing beats a good beer holder :beerchug:

This is the solution I finally ended up using and I have to say that it works fantastic.

Not at first, mind you, but once I modified it by cutting the bottom out (tall 30oz drinks were top heavy).

Now it works great.  Perfect.

I had this one I bought on ebay, I think it was a Kuryakyn and it mounted to the clutch perch. It worked very well the only thing was I had to trim the little rubber nubs inside the basket so my 32oz would fit.  ;D






Don't mean to steal thread....but what kind of windscreen is that, and what's the purpose...Thanks

Sour Kraut, The windshield is a Madstad adjustable shield. you can place it at many different angles as well as adjust it up or down. With it in the position you see it worked best for me as very little wind turbulence was felt. This was probably the best shield I have ever used, the price seemed to be pretty good to me too. You can check it out here: http://www.madstad.com/

Could go the cheap frugal way, and put a magnet in a foam can insulator, slap it on the tank, and Shazzam, cup holder.

That's brilliant!

This is the one I use too, works really good though the taller water bottles aren't 'bottom heavy' until you take a sip or two.

It works so good that I put extra ram balls on my VStrom and XT225 so I can use the drink holder on them as well. On the XT I only use it when it is in touring mode (when the windshield is installed) otherwise it might look silly  ;D

There's an alternative to a cup holder that we use on longer trips. Put a Platypus, or a Camelback nside a tank bag. When you're thirsty, simply pull the tube out and drink. Works with a cull-face helmet also.

My drink holder sits on the back, tells me when I go too fast, and even cooks me dinner sometimes.

I love the ingenuity and working with what you got sittin' around.

About the only thing I'd do differently is set it on the gas cap, or put some clear plastic on the top of the tank to protect from scratches (those magnets have a terrible tendency to pickup metal shavings).

Bicycle handlebar mounted bottle cage on the left, had to loosen the brake perch and move it over a bit and dremel off the little nub out clamps have for some strange reason.

In the center, a bicycle "cup" holder. I say "cup" because it conical, to hold, well, a cup.

on the clutch reservoir I have a regular cup holder you buy in a gas station for $1, the kind you put on your car window. Drill two holes, use two zipties and voila. Cupholder. They hold snapple bottles perfectly.

I just bought this one off of Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009TI5B3U  I plan to mount it on the windshield above the instrument panel somewhere so that I can still see the dials. I'm hoping to mount it far enough down that the dash will add some support in case the suction cup doesn't quite cut it, but I will see how that works out. At this point, if it will hold a 12 oz. cup of coffee on the way to work I will consider myself lucky.

I got the Cutequeen cup holder in today and mounted it on the windshield just above the dash so that it actually rests on the dash for support. The down side is that it will partially block my speedo and my tach. I'm pretty sure I can work around that when I have a cup in it. The cool thing is that when I don't have a cup there I can hit a button on it and fold it up out of the way. I only expect to have a cup in it in the mornings on my way in to work so I think this will work out. Not much traffic or speed limits at 5:30 A.M. here. ;)
