It is in most Walmarts, so you can test the fit.
Holds my phone with its outer case very firmly, has never popped out or loosened up in the past two years.
Only $14... pleases the cheap bastard in me.
I'm curious about that crossbar -- did you fabricate it? Any details or more photos?

Yep, made it... I think I mentioned it once before on here somewhere...

Just welded some tube between two brackets I cut out... plagiarized the idea from one I saw on ebay.


Painted it and bolted it on with some SS hardware...

If'n I do it, I gunna git a wippin .... OK! I do it!!!

Thanks! But that was a little thing, not that hard really.

But then I like metal... and it usually likes me back!

And I get bored late at night at work...


Pass the time with little projects...

That's a perfect rack! Would you make one to sell. If yes, how much?

I use a Tech-Mount for my iPhone 6. It grips on the sides and and does not interfere with the volume buttons. It provides a pretty firm grip and I have never had a problem:



Then to mount it to the the bike I use a Tech-mount pin mount. This style may not work on the Versys, however, Tech Mount offers many other mounting options.

Here's the Otter belt holder that I use on the bike............just above the instrument cluster. I made a metal cross bar that the holder clips onto.
