F3 Iphone Fuel Cap Mount

Hey guys,

I occasionally (once a year) do some short touring with my F3 in Cape Town.

I would like to mount some sort of Iphone bracket so that I can worry less about the navigation and more on the ride.

Looking at a fuel tank cap mount as I believe it will stay out the way. Also double up as a Gopro mount for track days...

Gas Tank Mounting Base ? Small ? RAM-B-410 ? Morrison Motorcycle Mounts & More

Anyone use something like this and what was your experience? I like the fact that I can remove it quickly if I so wish.

Any better alternatives? I have a steering damper so the the steering yoke mount might be awkward.

Seems like a good mount, however you need to look down alot.
I got a mount around the front fork, under the triple tree clamp.

The phone is basically infront,yet underneath the dashboard. So you dont have to look away that far from the road infront of you.

Would be helpful If I posted some itemlinks

This is the mount that goes around the triple tree:
TECHMOUNT TECHMOUNT EURO MOUNT 50MM 4-70050X 571-1015
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TECHMOUNT....c100290.m3507

This is the phone holder:
TECHMOUNT TECH 4G GRIPPER BLACK 4-TECH-GRIPPER
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brand-New....c100290.m3507

You screw the Tech Gripper onto the mount.
And the springs of the gripper are strong. But dont know if strenght is good enough for a naked bike without front fairing.


If requested I can make some photos on how it is mounted to Mileena and upload it

I agree with BGS....I feel like you would be looking down a bit too much for my liking.

I would also consider a mount that attaches to the clutch or brake lever mount.

That's impossible on the OEM clamp. Or you need to losen and move up the clutch lever holder a little to the left, but not sure if that is such a great idea.
+You need to look out if it doesnt affect full steering lock againt front cowl.

Or use zipties to clamp something down to the triple clamp.

Here is where we diverge in opinion: There are extensions made by companies like RAM Mount that go straight up and mount with extended bolts to any standard metric bolting system. Some of these extensions are articulated so that any operating interference can be relieved.

I am certain I Could come up with the pieces necessary to mount an Iphone or equivalent to the clip-on.

I find that standard go pro suction mounts work fine.

Re sat nav, I don't feel the need to look at a screen and have the device (be it phone or sat nav) in my pocket and then listen to the instructions with headphones.

Thanks for the links! Please do send some photos! I do like the tripe tee one, wonder how sturdy it is though? I assume you put on the left fork. Any risk of binding when turning?

I dont need to ride with a GPS often and dont plan to keep looking at it, more of a just in case when not sure. Regardless it should still be relatively easy and safe to use, shouldn't have to pull over to get a good look or risk crashing my bike.

With regards to looking down on the fuel tank mount, will come down to the geometry. Looks like the phone is quite far forward and up so might not be too bad (or could be bad, cant tell).

Anyone tried the tank one?

No risk on damaging front fork, or hit the front cowl with steering lock.
Perfectly safe. You need to find a good position for the tech gripper but you can adjust the techmount itself aswell.

tomorrow ill upload some pictures under this comment
Dont have any on phone right now, and dark outside.

First picture shows how the techmount is mounted around the front fork and underneath the trimple clamp.
Second (is upside down) but it shows how the mount is placed so that it goes behind the clamp and the tech gripper is securely mounted and twisted on aswell.

I also made 2 POV shots, just to show you how far you need to look down for the techmount, and gastank mount.

With my Iphone 6 mounted upright or sideways, it doesnt affect full steering lock and doesnt touch any bodywork.
Clutchcable makes no contact or doesnt get stuck when steering.

Perfectly safe. I'd recommend for small GPS routes And since its behind the front cowl you have no worries of your phone blowing away. (I went to 155km/h, cant go harder bqs of power restriction, dont know how it reacts with 220-250km/h)
