Hard to beat RAM products: well made, reasonably priced (for that quality), hundreds of options, and even Vic uses them. Their home page is http://www.rammount.com/
, and the X-Grip page is http://www.rammount.com/products/app...xgrip_overview
; I don't have an X-Grip, but a lot of folks use them, or similar RAM-compatible products from other companies, especially for phones.
For the base area, Vic sells a replacement lower clamp that you can put on the clutch or brake side, and then add RAM ball(s) to. Those parts are http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en...mp/pid-2877372
. I have these, use them occasionally, and no problem with them... except that they may hold devices closer to you than you'd like.
For a very classy looking, strong, well-made, and reasonably priced base for anywhere on your handlebars, I can also recommend a device from Mounting Innovations ( http://mountinginnovations.com/
) that was pointed out to me on this or the other forum a year or so ago. That's their B-231U clamp, in chrome or black; see http://mountinginnovations.com/RAM%2...AM%20Bases.htm
(a little down the page) and http://mountinginnovations.com/RAM%2...ome/Chrome.htm
Once you get bases like those, you can get extensions ("double socket arms" in RAM-speak) from RAM in assorted lengths (3", 6", etc.), and then mount some holder. I have a RAM holder specifically made for a Garmin Nuvi 200 series GPS, and another one for my particular iPhone. They make hundreds of these things.
So, I agree with the others who say to stick with RAM products, except that at the very base -- the ball holder -- you have some other options for cleaner mounts. Here are a couple pics (and the fact that I have an XCT, and not XR, is irrelevant for this discussion, IMHO):
