phone holder
« on: September 20, 2017, 09:29:22 AM »

Hi all ,
Anybody here got any recommendations for a good phone holder ?
I always use it for a sat nav so need something to stick it to the bike .
Thanks ,
Paul

A smoking hot passenger.  8)

..or four strong magnets in a ziploc sandwich bag. Put the magnets inside the sandwich bag, one at each corner. Stick bag to the tank and put your phone in it.

Extra style points for adding a 12V accessory socket under your seat and running power up to your phone.

I'm just an auto sparky so I'll get someone else to do that for me  ::)

An excellent idea. Tasks as complex as that should not be trusted to a simpleton ;)

That and besides, if you did take it to a shop, it would be a n apprentice that does the job because no one seems to give a shit about a Hyo. It's as if the text on the side of a fuel tank alone is justification for doing a sub par job.

Agreed 100% .
It's called "snobbery" .
I am happy with the bike and that's all that really counts .
My original question still stands . I just wanted to know if anyone had bought one and fitted it , that's all .
If it is too hard to answer without a sarcastic reply , I am obviously in the wrong place asking the wrong question . That is a form a snobbery just like the attitude to our bikes.

I wasn't being sarcastic at all. It's a genuine recommendation.

I've never bought a phone mount before so I have no other recommendation.

I have used the sandwich bag method I described to excellent effect. Even in the pouring rain! Seriously consider it as it works brilliantly.

Anyone else got anything they would recommend?

Apologies ,
I thought you were taking the piss with the sandwich bag . That's the way it sounded  :-[
I will say it would be a difficult using the phone in a sandwich bag , stuck to the tank with magnets as a Sat Nav though  ;D
