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.
