Just downloaded Harry's LapTimer app. Just wondering - for you guys with phones mounted to your bike - what methods or products are you using to securely mount your phone?

I was looking at MotoD's product, but looking for something a little less costly. Thanks.

Sena head set, put the phone in my jacket pocket. You get turn by turn instructions...

+1 for tech mount. Currently using mine as a radar detector stand! Extreme black velcro holds great and doesn't vibrate the shit out of your phone. I tried those really strong clear locking strips that come on the back of those EZ pass toll road units but the vibration from bile kept vibrating my phone so bad it would think the sim fell out and I'd have to restart it.

All, thanks for the responses. I ended up going with a super cheap solution: $3.99 Black 3M velcro (Command Strip-like) on top of the fairing stay and the other piece on the back of my thin iPhone case. It fits perfectly and is super-solid and doesn't look too out of place when the phone isn't mounted. I'll reinforce it with two thin pieces of elastic tied around the top and bottom of the phone just in case. Again, this will only be used on the track, not for everyday use.

On a different note, with no warning, ran out of fuel on the 101 yesterday. Pushed the bike about a half mile to the closest gas station. Put a thermistor on order today. Hopefully that clears up that issue. Cheers!

Not the straightest, but gets the job done:

Don't know where I bought these two fork clamp plates...

I use a Ram Mount, built in the USA (so very difficult to get parts here in CH without paying stupid shipping fees), but it works a treat.

It's mounted on the steering damper using the supplied curves bolt which matches exactly (by chance) the diameter of the damper :)

It holds well, and is not so tight as to damage the damper. The guys at the shop liked it a lot.

I also have a cheap (but waterproof) USB port that I found on eBay. About 5$.

The advantage is that it's positionable, and allows use as a gps / dash cam or for taking time lapse video of rides too :)

For Harry's lap timer, I block the camera on the iPhone to record black video and then use a gopro to record nice footage. Then you can overlay the black using chromakey in a video editor to get all the details, such as corner names etc, but on the nice video feed.

Don't get an odb2 reader for Harry's lap timer as the duc doesn't support the protocol fully (it's blocked on purpose) and you don't get rpm or speed details as expected. I think it may be possible if you flash the ecu, but I haven't tried that yet as I'm a bit too scared to do so at the moment.

SVRE46, that is a nice setup. Can you tell me where it attaches to the bike? I'm not seeing it clearly. Is it in the stem nut? If so, how? Perhaps theres a part number or you can link me to that item on Amazon.

FWIW, my $4 velcro job held up very well all day during a track day at Buttonwillow, but I'm interested to see other options. The Harry's app is pretty simple to use as a simple lap timer; I'll just need to play with the other features to take full advantage of it.

Thanks again, guys.

If you tap a hole in the steering nut, does that hinder performance or anything? I have all those pieces from my GSXR, just need the ball for the steering nut to complete it.
It does not hurt anything. There is already a hole in there. All you are doing is adding threads. Just be careful when threading the hole is shallow.
