Well this didnt last long.
Tested on the UBDR
Is that the old one or the new one ? Have you called or emailed Hondo Garage about it ?
Does seem like the thing to do before this kind of sour grapes. I have an issue with a Hondo Garage product right now. Emailed them this weekend. No expectation that I won't hear from them sooner than later.
I'm running the new one personally and have abused it a lot (seen in the video below) and it's rock solid. hasn't failed yet
Yea its new. Well It was bought with the new Juiced Squeeze. Currently on a 6k mile trip with it. Hondo will be contacted but thats not going do much right now.
Hey, its a 1st world problem for sure. But it was worth showing in this thread. The wires broke very early in the trip and when your relying on it for navigation, its a issue.
Don't throw it away they will want it for failure analysis.
I can’t comment at this point as to the cause but obviously that’s not supposed to happen. It should go without saying that we will replace or refund that for you but for now, since you’re on a trip you have a couple of options. The buzz kill is only needed on revvy single cylinder bikes. So if you’re on a multi-cylinder machine or on something more sedate like a klr then you can mount the perfect squeeze to your bars with the hardware you have(just removing the buzz kill parts) and your phone should be fine. Phone cameras get damaged by the engine vibration, not the terrain. The other option is we can ship you another one somewhere along your route. My guess it’s a combination of weight and mounting angle but without getting some details and doing some tests it’s hard to say what caused that.
Thank you Hondo
Ill PM you.
Great customer service!
And not at all surprisingly, I had an email reply this morning from Hondo with a perfectly acceptable resolution to my issue. Excellent customer service. Thanks Hondo Garage!
I had a simple question earlier in the thread about a simple set of instructions on how to assemble various products from your range. I have the perfect squeeze bar and clamp bundle and the buzz-kill vibration isolator. There are some videos on your website, but I may have missed something instructing the buyer how to assemble the various products. Thanks
For the bar clamps we have this video:
We don't have one for the Buzz Kill but it basically bolts in-between the perfect squeeze and the dovetail plate for the clamps. Use the holes that align with the centerline of the mount. This photo shows how it's done:
Also useful to know is how to set the grip tension:
Thank you. It's a great product and I don't want it to fly off down the street.
ty a lanyard to it.
Got my squeeze a few days ago. At $85 I was a little hesitant to buy but, I'm glad I did. Definitely a high quality piece of equipment.
Once it's in the squeeze my phone's not going anywhere. The lanyard on my phone is to eliminate dropping it putting it or taking out the mount when ma hands are cold wet and numb.
I use a strand pulled out of a length of 550 chord.
Battery drain a problem? Does it come with an in line switch to power off??
It will drain a battery eventually. You’d need to wire in a switch or to an ignition switched circuit.
I’ve killed my iPhone XR camera twice on with my F800gs due to vibrations at highway speeds in an X-grip. Would the buzzkill and perfect grip keep this from happening?
Yes, I use it on a thruxton, rc390, r12rtp, big twin and st1300 with no camera issues at all. The rc390 killed my camera in 43 miles in an x grip.
I need another perfect squeeze for the Hardley.
I'll get a buzz kill for it as it's not quite as smooth as the Super Tenere.
Will the Juice Squeeze keep a phone charged if you're running Waze?
