My GPS is huge and fits behind the Sport Touring Windshield. The OEM windshield is roughly 4.5" + smaller. I'm pretty sure the mount would work, but the iphone would be exposed to the weather. Worse case, you could also put a ziplock bag over it, when it rains; however, the wind would probably reek havoc on the bag. My windshield also does just that ..... shields the GPS from the wind.

The GPS snaps onto this:



Which is connected to this:



Which then connects to the 3 1/2" arm -> dumbell -> 1 3/4" arm -> 9 mm mirror bolt mount

EDIT: I decided to check out the RAM (the manufacturer) home page. I found this note on the GA22 mount page:

"Notice:
THIS MOUNT IS NOT INTENDED FOR HIGH VIBRATION APPLICATIONS SUCH AS MOTORCYCLE OR OFF ROAD USE. FOR HEAVY DUTY APPLICATIONS APPLY PVC PLUMBING GLUE TO RAM-HOL-GA22 ADAPTOR PRIOR TO ASSEMBLY. NOTE: ONCE GLUED THE MOUNT WILL BE PERMANENT."

If I went the glue route, I would then have to get a new ball mount for my Jeep, in order to use the GPS!
Yes, that first one SUCKS for a motorcycle. It will just wiggle and fall off. I wish they would have had that warning when I first bought it, last year.

Here's another cool gps mount idea from Ram Mount. Just a simple threaded ball. Pop off the mirror plug by the clutch side lever and you can now put the ball in. Very clean and cheap too.

You can put one on the brake side also. The levers have the threaded sockets for other bikes that utilize the same levers but don't have plastics for the mirrors, so they go there instead.

I have one coming my way, will be cool to try it out.

I just did the same thing for my TomTom, using Headshrink's part list. I think it came out great!

There's just enough room. I cheaped out and got the single long ram arm and it just tucks under the windshield. I can push it a little further back and that would likely be far enough to protect it from a light rain, but I don't use it when it's wet since I try not to ride in the rain as much as possible. The double arm setup is probably the most adjustable, but the single one works just fine. the biggest downside is that the iPhone won't fit in the cradle with a case on it. I have both 3GS and iPhone 4 cradles, the 3GS cradle is closer with the iPhone 4 and case I've got and would likely fit with some mods to the cradle, i'm just not that adventurous.

excuse the crappy pics, i just took these with my iPhone, and it was too cold out to be bothered getting the good camera out

I get warm fuzzies when I see people building on my "Erector-RAM" idea.

I don't have pictures but I have an 09 ninja 250 with a hotbodies windshield so I used these RAM mount parts:

Manufacturer: RAM Mount Model: RAP-B-200-12U
http://www.expressmounts.com/ram-mou...b-200-12u.html

Model: RAM Mount Mini Motorcycle Mount Base 9mm Hole RAM-B-272U
Part No: RAM-B-272U (also RAM-B-272)
http://www.expressmounts.com/ram-mou...am-b-272u.html

I've noticed a lot of people not using the swivel arm. It works great and it makes it look a lot cleaner.

i did something similar. ram mounts work great. plus being somewhat tucked under windscreen reduces buffeting.

to the left mirror mount. use a longer bolt to make sure you properly engage mirror. don't forget blue loctite(med strength)

here is with a nextbit robin. it’s better with a iphone se but harder to see. the robin does covers some of the gauges.
ram shock pad. since nextbit died a quick death due to razzer buying em out, i didn’t feel bad about gluing the pad directly to the case.
