Thread: RT handlebar phone mount?

    RT handlebar phone mount?

    Sorry if this has been done to death before, but searching didn't yield results. I'm thinking about a handlebar mount for a cell phone, Galaxy S9, if that matters, going on a '16 RT. Have you done this? and what recommendations do you have?. Thanks

    Have a look at the Similar Threads panel at the bottom of the page. Might help you get going.

    RT handlebar phone mount?

    Might look at Tackform. Had been using RAM mounts but recently switched. The Tackform mounts are smaller, all-aluminum and better quality IMHO.

    Photo is Tackform mount with iPhone X, about same size as Galaxy S9.

    May not be what youíre looking to do, but just picked up a Ram mount that attaches to the ring around the gas cap. By the time you attach the Ram to the mount, it places the phone higher and forward. Works well with my S9 on my RT.

    Thanks. I saw one similar to that on RevZilla, I think, said fit BMW and Kawasaki, but then only referenced some slightly older Beemers. I wasn't sure if it would fit mine, but that looks exactly like it.

    Yeah, funny thing, I used the search function and scrolled through dozens of pages, finally started this thread and as soon as I did, there were the things I was looking for at the bottom of the page. They were helpful, once revealed. It would have been nice if they'd showed up by using the search function.

    That is brilliant! I love RAM stuff. Do you happen to have the RAM part number for the gas tank mount pictured?

    I do. Itís B-411U. Amazon has it.

    The above part number is just for the gas tank mount, not the arm or grip.

    Thank you! Did you also need to get longer bolts for mounting?

    No, it came with some, but I used the ones I had been using for the tank bag mount.

    Please disregard. I see the mount comes with bolts included. For those interested, it includes:

    (QTY. 4), M5-0.8 x 40MM Socket Head Cap Screw
    (QTY. 3), M5-0.8 x 25MM Socket Head Cap Screw
    (QTY. 4), M5 Stainless Steel Flat Washer

    Did you use the 4, 40mm cap screws included?

    Didnít use any of them as I used the screws I had used for the tank bag mount that I took off.

    Have you looked at the accessories wall at your local dealer? I've seen aftermarket mounts at both Long Beach BMW and Irv Seaver's. What actually caught my eye was that a motor officer was buying one for his bike, and we chatted about that for a moment - they sync it to their system, then when they get a call to go somewhere, it pops up with a map and directions. Sorry I forget the brand at the moment (red & black card?)... I'm useless...
