Cell phone mount

Any suggestions or ideas (Photo) being at it impossible to mount them to the handlebars themselves.

I use a ram mount with the ball on the LOWER bolt hole on the handle bars. USE THE LOWER BOLT!!! I made a mistake and used the upper bolt and squished the wire underneath that I didn't see and shorted out my bike. Use the lower hole!

They are ridiculously overpriced in my opinion, but they work very well. I tried several others and ended up with the ram. So...save the money that I threw away on cheap others and go ram from the start.

Ram mount's way to go! I use them to hold video camera on my race-bike. Even after high-side crash, camera's still secure and rolling!!!'

As a follow-up to my suggestion...

Because they are quite popular, and ridiculously overpriced, they are also a popular item to steal. With the quick adjustment knob installed, it only takes seconds to remove a mount and arm. They sell an adjustment setup "lock" that takes a "Key" to turn it.

I replaced the quick adjustment knob with a regular nut on the items that I leave permanently on the bike. Not only is my phone mount using the ram ball setup, but my TomTom Rider 550 GPS (happily recommend despite it's few quirks) has a ram mount system mount. These items stay on my bike, so I use a regular nut instead of the quick adjuster. I have them just loose enough that I can move them with a bit of resistance to adjust for sun washout if needed, but tight enough so that they don't move while riding. They will sometimes move if I hit a large bump, but not under normal circumstances.

Here are the ram mount "securing" items...

Like I said...a simple nut works for me. If they want to steal it, I make them work a little harder for it, without spending $70

Also, check other stores or ram mount directly. Seems that some amazon sellers have sustained head injuries where the current prices are set. The locking knob is $72 on amazon currently....$29.49 direct from Ram.

I got the Quad Lock setup and I am real glad I did it sticks to the back of my phone's case and is super secure even on dirt roads and pot holes
the handle bar attachment thing is robust and i have no fear of it braking because of a bump .... they also have a unit that will charge your phone
without plugging it in or one that you can plug into like normal
I saw the Ram mounts and thought they would not handle bad bumps or dirt roads and trails and I wanted something that wasn't going to brake...
and so far I can say that I got what I wanted ! fast and easy to put on or take off... for me it's the way to go.... I'll take it off the ninja and put it on the RX4
as that is what it was intended for in the first place.
their expensive.... but very secure ! my 200 dollar phone isn't going to be destroyed when it's on the bike I'm fairly certain ! if I had a $600 dollar phone I would leave it home instead of taking it with me LOL
but with the Quad lock phone holder there is no need it's as secure as it gets !

.....
Bob.......

Thank you for this advice. I installed my today and I'm sure I would have used the lower bolt. I would have also probably tried to put it on the left side. The right lower bolt was perfect.
