Then get an actual ram bar mount for the mirror stem.

I did this and the Chinese mount works great with usb power.

This is what I put on the 2019 Ural Gear Up. The RAM Mount Universal Device Holder Kit which will work on your bike as well I would think. I would stick with RAM brand as the price is still pretty reasonable and you know you are getting quality.

I used this from interphone.com
Works great on those non-tubular handlebars
and it also holds your phone in a protective case so it's not exposed if it starts to rain.

Agree on the RAM mount for the mirror stalk. Add the RAM X-Grip safety tether. That's what I've used on several motorcycles and scooters, and is currently on the GTS.

You might want to replace the hand tighten knob with a bolt if your MP3 sits outside, or just remember to take the cradle off when you are away.

Print one of these and attach it to the top of your brake fluid reservoir.

Not a lot of exposed surfaces there.
Mirror stalk or brake reservoir cover seem the choice.
I did a Google search; "Ram Mount for motorcycle master cylinder".
Lots of options.

Recommend procuring and using tether if you go with medium size.

Check out the quad lock phone mount. The thing is freaking incredible. it will not come off it will not slide out it will not bounce off. Check it out this is the best phone I have ever seen. I would not mount my phone on a motorcycle before this.

New Style RAM Phone Holder
RAM has a new style holder for phones. More secure than the X-Mount I have used in the past, and doesn't put pressure on the side buttons. It's spring loaded at the top, and the side brackets adjust.

Quad Lock is the way to go. And if you have a popular phone, you buy a case with the phone side of the quad lock built in. Check it out, best I have even seen.

This is rock solid. First one I would put my $700 phone in. I don't get subsidized by a cell phone company. I am on Google Fi network and they don't offer phone discounts, but you get PURE Android without all the carrier Crap on the phone. And of course the Google Fi network

In the car, sitting in traffic, I get to see a few bicycles go past and I noticed that they seem to have a much better selection of phone and sat-nav mounts than you see listed for motorcycles.

Might be worth looking at bicycle shops to see if something fits or can be adapted.

The nice thing about the RAM mount is you can just pop your device in and go. No need for a special case or adapter. Mind you I have both types of devices but for versatility like RAM mount. I also have the BMW Garmin Motorrad GPS and on my other bikes RAM mount is the only way to do it.

Also with the other devices if you get a new phone you either need to buy another case or adapter especially if the size or form factor changes.

And when you drop you bike it comes out. Know people that it has happen to and why I will NOT use a ram phone mount.

And all you have to do is get a new piece of double sided tape to tape the adapter to your new phone.

And this company sells bicycle mounts too.
Quad Lock is the wave of the future for phone mounts.

Hereís an idea. Donít drop your bike. Iíve been off-roading and I mean serious stuff on the Ural and had no issue. A lot of people donít use the rubber part that goes over the corners of the device. Makes a big difference.

OK, good point

My phone posted a picture on it's own. That's OK we can use a little peace and tranquility around here. That's actually from the cottage we just got back from a week or so ago.

Re: New Style RAM Phone Holder
I like the new style RAM Phone holder, but does anyone know which would be better, mounting it to the mirror stem or will the brake cylinder plate fit on a 2019 MP3 500ie?

Will the mirror stem mount vibrate too much to make the cell phone screen virtually unreadable?

And will the RAM mount for the brake fluid reservoir fit on the MP3 500?( the one that is mounted on top).

Plus the new style RAM Phone holder is only about $16.50 on Amazon, much cheaper than some of these other alternatives.

I had a mirror mount on my GTS, and have a mount that attaches to the handlebar clamp bolts for my Silverwing. The mirror mount vibrated a lot. The handlebar clamp mount doesn't vibrate at all. I suspect you'd be happier with the brake reservoir mount as far as vibration is concerned.

This is what I used on my 2016 MP3/500 ABS and 2009 MP3/250 Mirror Stems.
The RAM products work, but the stem is to small for the RAM Mounts, you would have to improvise with a piece of tubing to get the thickness just right.

I have not had a problem with excessive vibration, in that I could read google maps, or select a different audio feed. I have had issues with the volume button accidentally being depressed all the way down, but now I know when that has happened and can fix it fast. I agree the brake fluid reservoir mount would be nice, but I couldnít get that to work without compromising reservoir integrity, which I am not willing to do.

Yeah, I was wondering if the RAM mount for the brake fluid reservoir would even fit on the 2019 MP3 500ie since it is so close to the padded part of the handlebars.
