Holds tight - very versatile
I purchased this product for a recent motorcycle trip where I rented a bike. I wanted a quick and strong way to mount my iPhone to the handle bars. Rode for 6 days and never had to make any adjustments. Great solution.

Very versatile RAM clamp
This clamp is a bit bulky but will provide endless possibilities for mounting your RAM Mount compatible items. You can clamp it to square, rectangular and round pipes and materials. Very sturdy construction and holds the items well in place.

The claw is the same size no matter what size clamp you get. The only difference is the circumference of the inside diameter.
Its too big! the other monts are easily removed though so... ill suck it up. It has solid functionality but even the small clamp is a freaking brick of a thing. very unnecessary for holding a cell phone or pretty much anything else you need on your bars. Its a bit of an eye sore.
What i will say is that for mounting goPro and other cameras its a gift from god! reduces shake due to rubberized ball. havent found anything better. I just take it off of the bike when not in use. few twists of the knob and off fast.

Solid, Typical RAM
Clamps on everything, have not lost it despite trepidations that it will disappear. No muss, no fuss, would buy another if I could afford an additional camera!

Mounts on my 1.5" odd shaped handle bars with no problem. It grips great where I can relax and not worry about it coming off.

Looks great but doesn't fit
Product is much bigger that pictures indicate, end result it is far too big and doesn't fit anyway on the handlebars of my 2017 Ultra Limited.
I am sure it works fine on bike without fairings but there is no way it will fit without blocking something out or hitting the tank.
Bit disappointed.

Not sure.
Had to order another style of bar mount from daddy, ball. Your mount was to big and bulky. The other parts work good. I would recommend the phone holder and other parts.

i chose this over the U shape model as i wanted something that could be removed easily if needed. installation and ride functionality with other RAM components i bought together yet to be determined.
DesertDragon on Oct 15, 2015
I have a Ram Mount on one of my motorcycles (u-bolt type) and it works well. I'm trying this one to avoid stressing a wiring harness. I chose it because it appears to be ideal for my needs. The great reviews clinched it for me.

I want to mount the phone holder onto the center handlebar mount on a 2015 HD Deluxe. The bracket holding the handlebars is 2.25 wide. Will the mounting bracket clamp open wide enough to fit this ?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the small and the widest path through the jaws is 1 3/8". Probably not, but there is also the Large beyond the medium . . . go the the RAM site for the dimensions. You may want to contact them for an absolute answer. Good Luck!
Will this work on a gold wing?
Jennifer M on Jul 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Can't speak to a Goldwing handle bar. Mine was an irregular shaped bar on a BMW K1600GTL and the claw grip worked great.
Which size should I get for a 2016 Tiger 800 XCx?
Mukhriz H on Nov 27, 2016
