Ram Mount
« on: June 16, 2015, 04:54:16 pm »
What mount do you use to attach it to your bike?
As you know Ram mounts are like lego that you get to choose the different parts.
Our handle bars are funky rectangle shaped. What clamping system do you all recommend?

I used the unused mirror mount holes and found a cap screw at my local hardware store to affix a pair of these:

I didn't take the time to look for a picture.  If you need a picture, let me know.

There's also another one that uses the brake or clutch lever mounts. You should see it on the Ram Mount site. That's the one I'm using.

Similar to the other mount, I have two (one in each mirror post)

There is no such thing as too much ammo, unless you are on fire or trying to swim.

The question is where DONT I mount something!?



fun aside, I HIGHLY suggest the top of the dash. You can take off the inner cover and make it secure, strong, and decent looking. When its there, it's not attached to a rigid part of the bike. The stuff on the handle bars will liquefy all your electronics with the buzz. I sometimes keep my ipod on the left hand side, but now generally keep it in my tank bag hooked up to a portable battery.

I just mounted my Ram ball below the ignition key....I got some 1/8" Aluminum bar stock and epoxied it in on the back (had to make a clearance hole for head stay nut)....it took any flex out of the mounting surface.

I mounted mine on the mirror post. It's a 10mm x 1.25 pitch thread that I had a hard time finding at the hardware store. In fact I couldn't find one. So I  took a broken mirror from my KLR that I cut down to just the base nut, touched up with some Rustoleum and mounted the RAM ball. Works great, and now I feel better about not throwing away useless motorcycle parts.

I have been using this mount in the fixed version for a couple years now to hold my Iphone.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Adjustable-Motorcycle-Gas-Tank-Mount-Camera-Phone-GPS-Bracket-For-Kawasaki-/321800102748?fits=Make%3AKawasaki&hash=item4aecc7e35c&vxp=mtr

 It is configured with a ram double ball mount(the same one used on the brake and clutch clamps) with spacers bolted to the mount, a long ram extension, and a Technick(sp) mount to hold my Lifeproof case. Mounted to the tank reduces the vibes and makes the phone easy to read. No room on dash with a Zumo, Nuvi, and Spot. Sorry, no pic.

HTH,

Bet if you tried really hard, you could add another mount somewhere.
