Unable to hold iPhone 6 on an expressway. Don't buy
If you ever think of using a universal cell phone mount on a motorcycle handle bar, then you may have a different look and feel of the phone (provided you're lucky to recover it). While riding on Parkway on the left most lane, iPhone-6 came off lose from the X-grip holder. Fortunate to have dropped right on the left shoulder yellow line with its face down, it probably was run over several times by cars before it was recovered in approx 60 mins. Although the screen is shattered, it is operational and its body intact. Except for navigational device or GoPros that are anchored to handlebar, think twice before you mount something else on the handlebar.

meets my needs, easy to install.
this phone holder is versatile enough for what I needed and I would think for most.
it holds a 5s without a case, although I would feel a little nervous just cause it's an expensive item, but I ride with my older 4s mounted and it hasn't budged. my phone is in an ottercase so I feel like the grip of the rubber mounts against the rubber case is a little more secure, but I dont know that a phone without a case would slip much more. It feels like it has a grip on it and it's not going anywhere.

I haven't had any problem on fire roads and very light off road at 40 mph and street riding up to 100mph. The phone hasn't budged in either riding scenario.

People do mention the rubber grips can come off, but that wasn't my experience from normal use so far. You can put some gorilla glue in them and mount them, but I think it's not needed.

yes, I did have to buy 4 new rubber grips because one got lost, but that's because my dog jumped up on my motorcycle and removed all 4 of them and I only found 3 of them. I think one was mixed in with the trash can full of stuff that he shreaded.

I'd like to buy another mount for a go pro cam to mount else where on the motorcycle. This seems like a product worthy and I like to multiple mounting options offered.

btw, the 30 degress movement highlighted in the comments hasn't bothered me. Especially since sometimes I adjust the a little from side to side. good to have a way to stop that movement with some tie straps as submitted in the other review.
I would recommend this product and buy it for another motorcycle if I had one.

i almost want to buy another mount so I can move this to a protection bar on the side of the motorcycle so I can film video with my phone.

this is on my bmw650gs, btw. pics included. sorry one is out of focus. my eyes are failing me!

my first product on revzilla and shipped fast at no cost. when I called to inquire on the product the rep spoke of others in the office that used it and let me know it was a solid product. that was nice to hear from personal experience.

Ideal if you use your phone for GPS
I'm on a Ninja 300 and it took a bit of sanding to get the plastic U ring cushion to fit on the handlebar, but once I got it fitted I just screwed it all together and it hasn't budged. I've had it for a few months now and it's been reliable enough for me to put my iPhone 5s on it, with and without a case. A 6 Plus or like-size phone probably won't fit, so think about that if you have one or want to get one in the near future. I'm really glad I bought this thing because it allows me to easily view my phone for GPS purposes and it isn't huge or bulky and doesn't ram my tank when I turn the handlebars.

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

Super-grip, great product
I've always ridden with my phone in my pocket, which makes it difficult to navigate when you have to pull over, take your gloves off, and figure out what's going on.

Add this mount to your ride and the information is in your line of vision. Add a communicator to your helmet, and this mount's value increases exponentially. Changing pandora stations, answering making calls, adjusting GPS navigation, and watching Netflix (kidding), become so much easier. It completely changes the style of riding in that you're no longer unsure of which road to take, or trail if you're an off-roader.

I've crashed off-road a couple of times with my phone attached to the RAM mount. Surprisingly to me, the phone didn't budge. One of these crashes was off a ledge onto a rock, where the left handlebar slammed into the rocks below. So if you're questioning the grip, trust me when I say that it's going to take a unique situation to rip your phone off of this holder.

Very good product. Great for holding my IPhone 5. Tested it over a 1100 mile trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway and back on the highways with speeds between 70 and 80 mph with problems at all. Very easy to mount and versatile in positioning.

Does what it is supposed to
Buddy of mine has had this on his 06 gsxr750 for over a year. He went on a trip from nj and looped up to Canada, out to Vegas, down to Louisiana and than back home hitting some rough roads through national parks along the way. He had no issues and no worries of the phone falling out. So, I picked one up and mounted it on my zx10r. Installation is easy, seems very secure and easy to set to the exact position desired.

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.

Decent Product with a Few (fixable) Fatal Flaws
I just installed this phone holder today and have yet to use it. However, I have noticed some flaws that should not exist in something that costs this much.

-Mounting hardware is clumsily designed. U-bolt setup with the little plastic insert and standoffs is a little strange. Although it's very flexible in mounting configurations and seems very secure after installation.

-I've read the other reviews saying that the rubber pieces fall off.. they seem firmly attached so far but again this should not be an issue for something priced as it is.

-The most annoying thing for me so far: The clamping arms kind of "float" so that your phone can just rotate freely about 30 degrees. This is just bad design; some designer at RAM not really thinking things through. I've attached a photo of my fix... just a small zip-tie holding one arm to the screw post so that only one arm is free to move. This keeps the phone in one orientation and is installed under the round cap with 4 screws so that it is imperceptible on the outside. It also doesn't affect how securely the phone is held in place.

Overall it's not a bad product.

Yes your device will fly away but.....
Yes it will fly off with one good jolt. I also had to reposition the phone after a ruff patch of road.

Make sure your rubber grips are secure. They do slip off! I super glued them. They mention this in the instructions. Yes I read the instructions. :)

I might look into putting a stronger spring for the X grip. I used 2 elastics positioned under the phone to give it a tighter grip and I was unable to jolt my phone off . Horizontal or vertical position. But the elastic are a pain in the ( * ) when you want to remove your device.

This product would be even better if it had a pressure lever to prevent the X grip from moving once the device is positioned.
So there you go RAM, the info on what to do for version 2.0 and if you do decide to make the rev 2.0 with a pressure lever/button to prevent the X from moving please send me a FREE unit. :)

I use my phone for GPS and this mount holds my phone securely. It does have a tendency to tilt to one side or the other due to it's ability to fit different phones. That's the only con for me. Not a big deal, just have to reach up and straighten it back everyone once and a while.

This Ram Mount is awesome. I have it attached so that it's not protected by the wind screen on my KLR650 . I have used it with my iPhone attached to it for about a 1000 miles now. I rarely ride over 75 MPH. Any speed from 0-75 it doesn't even wiggle in the Ram Mount. Great product. Very happy with it. You will likely need to tighten it to the handle bars tighter than you might think to keep it from moving.

As a driver, I was pretty reliant on using a cell phone GPS for navigation. On a motorcycle, finding a suitable mount was extremely important to me. Since my entire life is reliant on my cell phone, having this mount (with a little stretchy plastic wrapped around the phone as a "backup") gave me a lot of confidence that my cell phone would not be lost, even at speeds upward of 85 mph.

BEST ANSWER: Without a doubt in my mind. Absolutely LOVE this particular mount; I have one on my Honda VFR 800, my Kawasaki KLR 650 and had one one my DRZ400SM until selling it recently....BUY IT!! You won't regret it one bit..

May I also suggest buying the SENA SMH10 headset for your helmet. The two of these products paired together makes for the most enjoyable riding I've ever done in my life!

The fitting section of the product description has all the iPhones listed except the iPhone 5S. Will this work with the 5S?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will. When i purchased the RAM Mount I had an Iphone 4 in a Otter Box. I now have a Iphone 5S in an Life Proof case. The Ram Holder works excellent.
Will this mount work with a Samsung s5 Active?
A S on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Samsung S5 Active is 5.72 x 2.89 x 0.35 in. This does not exceed the maximum width of 3.25in and is over 4 in height. This will hold the phone securely even if you added a case. I have one on both my Honda Interstate and Suzuki Bandit and switch my Iphone 6 between them with no problems.
Will this holder work with a Samsung s5 Active?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2015

Does this product block the phone's rear camera? Or can you take a click (of course when bike is stand still)?
Vikhyath K on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will depend in what phone you have or really where the camera is. Generally speaking it should not block your cameras view. I have an iphone and it does not block mine. I have taken photos with both the rear and front cameras. Only when my bike is in motion though because if it was otherwise i would just take the phone off the mount and snap a pic ??
will this work for i phone 6 with otter case?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Works for any type of cell phone, you can adjust to the size to hold any cell phone.
Will this work with a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 500R?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have mounted this on my 2010 Triumph Tiger and 2014 Triumph Explorer using the u-bolt. The u-bolt wraps around the handlebars very securely. I have traveled extensively with it and has worked really well.
Does this come with the U-bolt mount or only the clutch/brake mount (as shown in the picture)?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Both, the clutch mount shown is saddled to serve as the other half of the bar mount u-bolt. It can also be used to bolt on to flat surface as I did. Phone holder and mount work great.
