RAM Mounts Universal Cell Phone Holder Kit
I bought this for my Honda CB 350F 73'. I was a bit hesitant at the begging on where and how to mount this as I don't have the stock handlebar. I however, ended up mounting it on the tube of the right front light.
Then again the mount isn't meant to be used like this but I did with a little mod. All I had to do was use pipe seal tape and finish it with one layer of duck tape. This way the mounting brackets would be tight enoug and even absorb some of the shock waves.
I'm using it with my iPhone 5 which has a lifeproof cover. It holds the phone beautifully. It works just the way I envisioned it.

Last mount you'll ever need. Absolutely the best mount on the market!
I love this mount. I have seen friends have to buy a new mount every time they upgrade their phone. That's nonsense. This thing will work for any phone for the foreseeable future. It is sturdy and reliable. I'm seriously tempted to replace my stock mirrors with Ram Mount mirrors because my phone/GPS has no vibration at all.
Revzilla also sells the X-Grip without the rest of the mounting if you already have RAM Mount attachment points or want a la carte options. The related products lookup won't let me add it to my review, but just search for the SKU number which is 869071

Brilliant kit, straight out of the box
Stable & secure and easy to attach - this kit does the job. And you don't have to worry about which components to buy, it comes with everything you need.
The only reason I'm giving a less than perfect rating is because the finish on the product was imperfect. It's a completely metal kit and in some places (around the ball joint) the black finish had worn off. The powder coating on the arm also had a few ruts in it. Overall nothing major but worth noting for those who want a more perfect attachment.

Great durable mount
Very solid mount. All metal. Holds my Galaxy Nexus with no worries. The arm makes mounting very versatile. I ended up mounting it upside down and then using the arm to bend back up to keep the phone under the windscreen.

Excellent product no substitution!
I finally broke down and bought this ram mount for my 2011 Harley Iron 883. I tried using a magnetic pouch for my gps and phone which was an okay solution but limited to mounting location and not good for visibility. Normally I do not cheap out but I gave a similar product a try that was made out of plastic but mounted to handle bars. It seem okay as far as gripping the device but the mount was not quite right on the handle bars and did not feel secure via the quick turn screw. Needless to say nothing beats all metal construction of the ram mount and bolts that are secure with very expensive electronics. Only thing I did do was purchased the shorter 1 and 3/4inc arm as the one it came with was a little long for my set up but on a bigger bike that might work great and not a ding on the quality product. Installation was a breeze as well.

Just what I wanted
Bolted this on top of the clutch master cylinder using the provided bolts. I did this because the brembo plate is drilled to hold choke lever.
Very pleased with how it holds my phone and is easily adjusted to view the phone as well.

Works well, but can come loose
Mounted it on the left handlebar of my 2009 R1200GS. Fits well using the U-bolt. The mount is very sturdy, does not vibrate at most engine speeds. Also, the grips really hold my iPhone and Otterbox Commuter very, very well. Surprising well. Only drawback is that the mount has worked its way loose twice due to the narrowing size of the GS's handlebars. Had to find a sweet spot and use some tape to provide a better grip/foundation for the mount. Quite satisfied.
