Fork Stem - Sportsbike Mounting Attachment Explained.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is "i have a sportsbike bike how do i mount my iPhone". As sportsbikes / sports tourers don't have the standard round handlebars and in most cases they have very little space.
Having a mounting point on a sportsbike gives you a lot of possibilities from mounting an action camera to record your track day to recording you touring Europe. You can use the fork stem attachment to mount dedicated motorcycle GPS or to mount your Smartphone or even a radar detector.
First thing is to locate the fork stem, on some motorcycles there will be a plastic cap covering the fork stem, this obviously needs to be removed. Once you have access to the fork stem you need to measure the diameter of the fork stem, please also check the the fork stem does not get narrower further down, its not very often but on some bikes this is the case.

Fork Stem Attachment
First thing is to locate the fork stem, on some motorcycles there will be a plastic cap, insert the attachment and use an Allen key to tighten the attachment. Each turn of the Allen key will make the two pieces of the attachment expand outward.
