    Great mount Craig. Only thing to watch is the little screw. It vibrated loose and noticed it just before I lost it. A bit of loctite should fix that.
    Very happy customer.

    Thanks W

    You are the second person to have this happen, though a low percentage it is a problem I will endevour to solve. There seems to be inconsistancy with the screws WRT sizing. Frustrating!

    The spring is strong enough that your radio should not fall out under normal circumstances. The screw is a locking mechanism mainly to prevent theft when you pop into a pub or go pay the fuel bill.

    Be careful with loctite, as you might lock it up permanently.

    Thank you for the feed back

    As it stands, no!
    But......
    do you have a MB-93 belt clip?
    If yes take some photos and sizes of the pip on the radio and I will let you know if it can work.
    I can honestly say I don't think the mount will work as is. But maybe some minor mods and could have a Icom model.

    I will see if I can find one to look at in the local area.

    Watch this space.

    So....
    I have had my first 2 non deliveries with Aus post regular mail :cry:cry

    Unfortunately I will only be using express post from now on. So no more $10 regular shipping, only $12 express post shipping.

    Sorry guys, circumstances beyond my control.

    Does the 12v charger stay attached by itself? It looks like it would fall off after a few bumps? I ride primarily offroad/firetrails so I think I will need to zip tie it on if I get one of these 12v units.

    Thanks for the photos and kind words Griffo.
    Looks good!


    I'm hoping to get some feedback from the APC riders.
    It would be nice to know how it held up in some extreme riding conditions.

    Bought 2 for myself and a mate to mount our radios for the APC rally. I'm happy to give this product a 5 Star rating. I had an off and the radio spun in the cradle but stayed on. My mate had a big off and radio and brackets stayed in place. Same cant be said for his handlebar

    That looks expensive! :eek1

    Thanks for crash testing the mount Moptop. :wink:
    Any damage to the mount when the radio did a 360°?

    Craig, my first one has now done the equivalent of 2 APC rallys and it has stood up fine to everything thrown at it.

    I am currently at Cape York and rode tele track with a couple of offs and the radio mount has performed without a problem, a great piece of kit
