Gas Cap Mount
« on: August 25, 2015, 02:57:53 pm »
Does some have the part number for the mount that fastens to the gas cap.
The one I fine is part #ACM-HB462, it states that it fits all Hondas and BMW's.
Sold through KAPSCOMOTO on Amazon.ca
Thanks

Are you speaking of the mount to add a Ram mount for cell phone or GPS?

Just one more question.
It is all mounted but I would like to bend the mounting face towards me about 30*.
Has anyone bend this metal/Aluminum?
It seems fairly rigid and I was leery on applying to much force.
I would like to bend it just above the bottom slot where it has a horizontal cut already 1/2 way through.
Is it possible or will the metal fatigue and break?

If you bend it, the powdercoat will crack.

Instead of bending, why not substitute a single nut and bolt with washer arrangement for the thumbscrews? A nylon locknut would work well here. This will allow you to tilt up the bracket to an angle of your choice.

That is so simple, it hurts that I did not think of it.
I could not get past trying to incorporate the rubber washers, on the thumbscrews, for any vibration issues.
Thank you.
