Question Quadlock Fork stem

Hi,

Just looked at Quadlock again and I saw they now have a Fork Stem Mount. Now the FJR has a closed cap. Now I am wondering if I can get away with drilling a hole in the cap. Or do you still recommend a different mounting?

Gr. Robert

Yes, you can drill and tap a hole in the stem cap. A threaded hole in the cap is pretty common here.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

There used to be a tech-something mount which replaced the stem nut and provided a RAM ball.

well, the part that attaches to the bike, won't attach to the bike, so other than that,
if you drill and tap the stem nut, its only a few threads tops, so the expanding part is out, and won't work, the arm looks nice, but won't fit a ram ball, so thats out.

i think this is what most people use

I got the quadlock round handlebar mount, and there was just barely enough room to mount it between the throttle and front brake mount. It's sleak and required no extension arm or ram balls, or drilling.

I see quadlock released a qi wireless charger enabled base now. FYI
Of course, I bought one without it before new one came out, but I'm still happy with it.

Just received the Fork Stem Mount. Which I will probably send back. In the meantime ordered the Handlebar Mount. As far as I can see it is 16mm wide and I have just 12mm of round bit of handlebar. Will see how to solve this later.
Probably for the weekend I have a nice project to see which one I can install. If need be with a bit of adjustment. Will keep you posted.

It comes with different spacers for different size bars. It's a nice kit.
