Thanks for that link Xring, I ordered one. I have a Ram x mount I switch between the car and the FJR. I was planning on ordering a reservoir mount to use it on the burg but I had to check this out. Btw, instructions for the ram mount say to superglue the rubbers onto the arms. Probably a wise move since this one includes two spare rubbers. There're been a few reports of phones/rubbers coming loose with the ram.

Its not the adapter that I was pointing out but the Powered Hub. The plastic stuff is junk and doesn't last.

The Hub also comes w/ a RAM mount and ball so you don't have to also buy that.

If you're referring to my link, it has 2 wires you run down and can tap into the cig plug in the glovebox. I like that the 2 wires have a 3rd outer shield over them both. The usb cover is not as tight as I'd like to keep water out. But Like I said I bought it for the mount. I will wire it up and see if it holds up ok though.

I'm still not exatly sure which part you are pointing out. But looking back it says their parts are made in the USA. That's probably a great thing. Downright impressive actually now a days. Not enough for me to pay 5 times the price, but I would pay double if there's a big difference.

You won't be disappointed. If you are, you're only out $20.

I just bought one of these has a stickyBase or Handle-Bar mount - you will need to feed it to the battery but it has its own - on/off

full disclosure its for my NC700 - but thought it worth a mention

BTW, running a charge cord from the glove box is not that bit a thing. I drilled a hole in the glove box just large enough to get the small end of the cord through (30 seconds), took the plastic off the handlebars (two or three minutes and, I believe only required removing a couple of the plastic rivets and unsnapping the plastics), snaked the cord out the back of the glove box and up to the hole where the steering goes through the dash then, along the handle bar to one side, leaving a few inches past where the handlebar plastics end (another few minutes), secured it to a few places to prevent snagging or chafing (another five or so minutes) and finally, replacing the handlebar covers. The only hole is in the top rear of the glove box where it will never show or be of any consequence.

The above was for a 650. On my 400, the only difference was I didn't have to drill a hole. Rather, I took the cord through the battery access hole, then secured the access cover.

Better to have scooted and got lost, than to never have scooted at all.
