I have the short black tackform on my dyna and knew I wanted one for my VL800 suzuki in chrome. It is rock solid and holds my phone perfectly not to mention the chrome matches the motif of the bike.
I get a lot of questions and compliments on both my tackform mounts. I tell everyone they should get one, they won't be disappointed
I have owned my 1996 Vulcan for over two and a half decades, and lots of life has taken place since that initial purchase. Met a girl, got married, road tripped across the country, had kids, parked the bike, got scolded by my then 10 year old daughter, fixed bike, and began to ride again. At this point, I came to realize how much I depended on my iPhone 7plus (yea it’s a dinosaur but it still works good) for navigation, music, etc. I was running Scala G9X headsets but didn’t have a good place to secure my phone.
I first saw their product on a buddies Harley and when I felt the quality, I had to have one! I went to the website to order the shorter version but it was sold out and my 2nd annual Daddy/Daughter road trip was coming up fast. So I ordered the taller version one and I’m so glad it worked out that way because it gave me the needed clearance for the tank mounted gauge bezel. When it arrived, I couldn’t open it and get it installed fast enough! Clear instructions and all necessary hardware made the installation a breeze. It actually took more time to decide exactly where I wanted it placed. The design makes it easy to place your phone right where you prefer and then you can lock it in place.
My bike isn’t anything special but I’ve kept it in excellent condition and I didn’t want to install a cheap looking phone mount right in the line of sight right amid all the chrome eye candy. Can I tell you that the Tackform Mount doesn’t take a back seat to any of my other bling. Names like Vance & Hines, Cobra, or Kuryakyn are found on my bike and Tackform doesn’t take a backseat to any of them in fit, finish, or functionality.
We just got back from our trip of Michigan and I was completely satisfied with my Tackform phone Mount. I had my daughter capture a pic of the Tackform holding my phone as we crossed the mighty Mackinac Bridge. In fact, I am so satisfied that when I buy a touring bike this fall, I’m buying another Tackform to place on it.
Well done Tackform!
Easy to install, Chrome looks great and very solid. My phone doesn't even think about moving once it's in the mount. Good value for the money can't go wrong.
I bought this for my Triumph Thunderbird LT. The handlebars measure 1.25" in diameter, but since they are curved in many places, they are also not perfectly round. So, there is a gap under the clamp, and the clamp doesn't close completely. Still, it is very secure. I have an old iPhone 7 with no case that I use as a GPS and it fits fine. I use the rubber safety but probably don't have to. I tried a Galaxy S10e with a thin case and it is also fine. My current iPhone XR, with an Otterbox Defender case, which I don't plan on using on the mount, is at the outermost limit of what will fit. Overall I like it very much.
