I'm using my setup from the last bike which is two RAM Balls on each side of the upper triple tree clamp with the left side being a 3" arm that holds the Perfect Squeeze iPhone mount
HIGH RES VIEW of handlebars (HUGE)
On that topic, I'd love to utilize and replace one of the 4 triple tree bolts and put a RAM ball there. I just haven't done any research on the thread I need to buy from RAM to fit it.
Works on my bike...
Is there a risk of running two as far as keeping everything bolted down? I want to clean up my handlebars (lol) to have more empty space. Heck, can I just install 4 ram ball mounts?
I should just get that and own the fact that I'm a hoarder
I just realized I have the ball mounted to my Rox risers, not directly to the clamp so now I'm not 100% sure it's the correct size for you application... but the spacer is metal so you can tighten the bolt down pretty hard so I don't necessarily see an issue replacing two of them..
Thanks! We have the same risers. I ordered two.
Personally, I'm looking for a mount easy to put on and take off. In the US, I am keeping the phone in my pocket, but I found down in Mexico that the using the phone (and Google Maps) for navigation is much easier than the Nav V.
Hey Adam, I watched your Denali Soundbomb video, very informative. Question regarding the wiring harness. Did you use the Plug and Play harness or the Do it yourself harness as listed on Twisted Throttle's website?
I just used the plug & Play option and it is truly that easy. One could save a lot of money and just buy the horn and do everything themselves but the R1200GS Mount + Plug & Play addition add like $30 to the price but make the install a lot more stream-lined.
Awesome thanks a lot man. Sounds like its all well worth the money.
Body shop has had my rear luggage rack plastic for 6 weeks. I finally told them they’ve had long enough
Local tire shop has sat on my woody’s wheels + tires for 5 days.
Local mechanic was supposed to re-paint my trailer. I called today “totally forgot about it” I dropped it off in November
I can’t finish the build until the plastic pillion bit and the wheels are on the bike. Thus...we keep waiting. YOu’d think shops in the winter time would have plenty of time to do things. Guess I’m wrong. Powder coating (done now) took 4 weeks when he estimated 7 days. IDK what’s up with Winter work.
Good news is, I grabbed a bike dolly for bikes with center stands. I can now roll the K75RT or GS around the basement with ease. It’s going to make moving bikers around so much easier!
I’m hoping to make a ton of progress this weekend...like finish the GS if I can. We’ll see.
Glad to see this type of business practice is not just a "here" thing. On the other hand what are you going to do when either they're the only game in town or everybody is equally inept? Laughing with you, not at you old son....
Since I have some spare time, what's left to install on Rosie Red?
AltRider Lower Crash Bars
AltRider Skid Plate
Machine Art Moto X-Head
Woody's Re-trued / Re-Laced OEM Wheels
Mount & Cable Manage Clearwater Lights
Cable manage all sub-pillion electronics
Jesse Luggage Racks + Boxes
Touratech Frame Guards (requires some Dremel work due to AltRider rear brake reservoir)
Touratech Exhaust Flap Control Guard
Touratech Starter Guard
Touratech Final Drive Breather Kit
AltRider ABS Sensor Guard
Chinese Final Drive Guard (TT Rip-off)
Rear FD Slider
Frame End Caps from Pyramid Plastics
Extreme magnet drain plugs for Oil + Final Drive (these things are incredibly magnetic)
FD + Oil Change
RAM Mount Bolts for upper triple tree clamp
Headers + Exhaust
Still need to order:
Auxiliary lights guards
So we're far from done but everything on here except crash bars are all very easy to do like 30-60 minutes at most.
I need to clean my Mosko Moto bags, not sure how to do that, also clean all of my riding gear and then the GS can be moved somewhere else so I can do other projects.
We are VERY close!!!!
Winter is generally the time where folks are having things done to their bikes (example-you) ......shops are always slower during riding season.....at least that's been my experience.
I asked this to the powder coating shop and he said all of the HD guys show up March 1st demanding work done by April 1st and his winter is slow except some race-car work since it's off-season. but yeah, the logic is sound as far as downtime work. Luckily our winters are 6 months long.
I’m not sure there’s enough money for me to live where the winters are that long.
What were you having done to the rear luggage rack plastic?
On my Triple Black, I rattle-canned the rear rack piece but you can see the chipping even after 5 weeks:
I aimed to re-do it after 2018's riding season was up.
I've heard from people having a professional shop do it would yield better and longer lasting results. They'd strip the silver paint and re-paint the plastic.
