RAM Motorcycle Mounts for Places Other than the Handlebar

Today, we are writing for those wanting to put a device on their motorcycle but not on their handlebar.  This request is more common than you might think.  Many motorcycles do not have a standard round handlebar.  In some cases you simply may not have sufficient space on your handlebar.

Fortunately our buddies at RAM Mount have provided plenty of options.  The most common non handlebar mount is the base for the brake or clutch reservoir.  Commonly used on Harley Davidson and Honda models like the Goldwing, the RAM-B-174 models work quite well and comes with replacement bolts for your motorcycle that are long enough to accommodate the old bolts plus the additional depth from the mounting post.

The next most popular option is the mirror frame.  RAM makes two mounting bases for this purpose.  The RAM-B-252U uses an 11mm hole.  The RAM-B-272U uses a 9mm hole.  Just add screws and washers and these fit the mirror frame on your bike.

Seems like we sell a lot of fork stem mounts to the UK.  Not terribly sure which models they use these for but they sure are popular across the pond.  The RAM-B-342U mounting base works with stems as small as 12mm.  The RAM-B-367U is a highly versatile mounting kit that includes a set of M8 bolts and is also very popular.  Lastly, there are mounting bases that attach to your reservoir cover.  The RAM-B-345U and RAM-B-346U are similar but have a ball in a different location.

Think about using some of these bases the next time you wish to add a device to your motorcycle.  Feel free to write us if you need fitting advice.

RAM X-GRIP III Universal Clamping Cradle for Tablets

Got a tablet with a case and want to use a RAM Mount?  Tough to do until now.  RAM recently released the RAM-HOL-UN9U.  This uniquely engineered X-Grip III cradle to fit almost all larger tablets with or without a cradle or skin.  While it isn’t the cheapest cradle ever released, it certainly is among one of the best made.  A series of spring loaded expandable supports easily separate to accommodate your tablet with or without a skin or case.  These fit the Apple iPad, iPad 2 and the new iPad 3.  These also fit many other larger popular tablets including the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The back of the cradle uses the RAM round adapter RAM-B-202U (you can use the diamond adapter too but we prefer the extra attaching holes on the round adapter).  This can be coupled with many RAM Mounts including the seat bolt, suction cup, flat surface and many others.

Like almost all RAM Mounts, these come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.
