Pair with the following links to achieve my setup.
First, the u-bolt mounting base clamps to the handlebars. I put some electrical tape over the bars to keep them from getting scratched up and also create a higher friction surface to keep the clamp from spinning on the bars. It came with a nice adapter to fit either 1" or 7/8" bars. Next you need a double socket arm which has a socket joint on each end to grab onto the ball on the u-bolt and the ball on the phone grip. Then you attach the x-grip to the other end of the double socket arm and you are good to go.
The 2 ball and socket joints give it really good articulation so it can be adjusted in any direction and the knob allows you to easily tighten it down snugly without tools. I was a little worried about my phone flying off the mount at high speeds but it proved to be very stable. However, for a little piece of mind, I created a small tether out of some string to attach the phone to the mount in the event that it came loose while under way. Fortunately, this was just me being overly cautious because I never saw it move at all during any of my rides.
An aside: One of the RAM products with which I have some experience is wholly inadequate for many applications in my opinion. Especially high temperature applications. Please read my review of the RAM 14" Long Extension Pole with (2 qty) 1" Diameter Ball Ends, and Double Socket Arm for a full description of its deficiencies if one is considering purchasing it. In the right situation and with some additional precautions, it is workable, but it all depends upon the application in which it is to be installed.
Motorcycle: Honda CBR500R
AFter 3 months of use the mount revealed some major design flaws:
1) the tightening knob will come off the bolt and the assembly halfs and pieces will fall apart. This happens often.
2) when the above happens and you happen not to recover the washers that fell off, you cannot tighten again unless you found and reinstalled the washers that sit between the knob and the body. The washers are required to tighten.
A simple fix would have been to keep the knob from unscrewing all the way.

I think, composite arms are a bit more slippery than aluminum ones, I have to tighten this one more than a metal one I also have to get the same grip. But it works. Read morePublished 7 days ago by P. Karpenko
