Phone Mount

Hi Everyone,

Just picked my V4S up this past Thursday, and I've been busy putting in some break in miles, and I have to say I absolutely love the bike so far. As for a phone mount, I've seen ads for the quad lock, which looks quite good, but as far as i can see, there's no place to mount it.

Has anyone found a viable solution for a cell phone mount? I've run a search, but it looks like no one has talked about this yet. The problem with the quad lock as far as I can see, is that we don't have any free space on our clip ons, and the mirror mount option won't work, since our mirrors stems aren't cylindrical (I'm planning on swapping out my stock mirrors anyway).

Please let me know if anyone has any good options, thanks very much in advance!

Congrats on the new Speciale and welcome to the forum. Unfortunately the only options that really exist on the market atm are universal, so fitment is going to be hit or miss.

Revzilla claims this will work on the bike.

I ordered one along with a magnetic mount (I use rubber-coated magnets to put the same radar detector on all of my bikes, however the V4 Speciale appears not to have a steel tank).

I'll let you know if I can find a place to mount it!

I think wrist cases are worth looking into if you might need that type of convenience.

****, I actually want to find a way to put that quad lock onto the bike, seems to be the best mounting system (for the actual phone that is), but mounting that to the bike is definitely a challenge.

On the left clipon, thereís a little bit of free space, Iíve measure it at about 13-14mm, the standard bar mount quad lock requires 16mm.

Anyone else with any ideas? If the fork stem mount that jdkerner linked above works, thatíll actually work with the ball adapter from quad lock. I really wanna stay away from a wrist case haha

I tried several and ended up with this one

The ram stem mount was to bulky for me. I wanted a very low profile.

The standard RAM fork stem mount won't work w/ the rubber stopper piece, but you can use a dry wall screw in its place and it will hold probably better than using the rubber piece. That's how I ended up doing it; I thought the RAM magnet mount would be sufficient for my radar detector but a bump would knock it off so I currently use rubber bands to hold it down in place and stays put no matter the road or speed (180+mph). I plan on finding thin metal pieces I can use in place of the rubber band so I can just dock/undock easier.

This is the original setup, but I switched to the 1/2" arm so it's smaller as this one was blocking my view of the tac. Also I have a phone cover taped to the radar detector and my phone I lock in place when riding so it looks like a phone mount to the unsuspecting eye. I'll upload photos of the new setup soon.

It might be a good idea to put some locking grease (locktite?) just to ensure it'll hold up to the vibrations over time if not already included, especially in an adequate amount. $2 for a tube of that grease can go a long way.

The RAM stem mount works, but not well. The fork stem is not a deep cylinder, just a ring; there is less for the rubber to grab and my radar detector wobbles. I need another fix.

Does this fit on the V4? Not sure which bike you show in the photos.
