Save the camera on your phone from damaging vibrations from your motorcycle! Modern phones with vibration canceling cameras will eventually have the camera mechanism fail if subjected to high frequency/power vibrations that normally come through the handlebars.
This plate mounts to the chassis on the top of the tank using the stock mounting points on the Tracer 900 and Tracer 900 GT (MY2019-20) and isolates the high frequency vibrations from the phone (resulting in lower frequency camera friendly bounces than sharp jolts) and looks nice as well. The plate has 4 holes at the front for a RAM AMPS square ball mount
The plate is printed in high strength and UV resistant Carbon Fiber Nylon (PA6), and has been tested over the last year in various conditions for thousands of miles. This material is far more durable, and appropriate than ABS or other 3D printed filaments for hot environment use, and does not get excessively brittle in cold weather.
There are 2 mounting options for this:
- 2 Bolt option – no modification option – this is the main mounting plate attaching to the 2 exposed bolts at the front of the fuel tank on the bike. The perks of this, is there is zero modification to the bike, but the downside is there is more bounce/ and movement from the whole setup. 3M VHB tape can help secure the front to the plastic tank collar to add more stability.
- 4 Bolt option w/ custom spacer – This is the recommended install. This requires 2 5mm holes drilled into the plastic collar that goes around the cockpit/bars, and the placement of a small specially designed washer/spacer under that plastic fairing. This install makes the plate incredibly rigid and stable while still isolating vibrations from the bike very well.
The kit includes provisions to mount both ways.
