Hey folks, does anybody have any recommendations for the above. I'm looking for something so I can fit to the mount that came with a 2019 versys. I'm UK based.

Cheers

I use the phone case in combination with the micro stem mount from SP Connect. Mounted on the over the clocks sat nav mount from SW Motech. Very satisfied with it.

This is what I've been using: https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-138-PD4U

I prefer it to the normal X-Grip as I feel its less likely to fall out.

I think this is probably your best bet. You could use it in conjunction with the 2019 Sat- Nav mount. I bit expensive I know but your phone would be fairly secure

My apologies, but I just re-read the post and noticed that Kawasaki is now selling a Sat Nav mount for the bike which is what you were probably referring to.

The quick grip XL does require a RAM mounting system.  The exact model that I am using is here: https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-149Z-PD4U and I have it come off the right hand side of the handle bar.

I have the base plate for the item in my original post and if you provide the measurements for the holes for mount I can measure the bolt holes on the base plate and see if it fits the base-plate in the original link.

Be warned, that putting stuff where the sat-nav is located kinda gets in the way when you go to turn on / off the bike and is low on the bike for a GPS imo.  I've mounted my GPS to the left bar and my cell phone to the right.

If you can find a mount that accepts the RAM Mount diamond style ball mount, it will fit the Kawasaki/SW Motech mount.

I'm not sure if this place will ship to you, but this is what I have, only for my LG phone.

I use Quadlock for all my phone needs - they have mirror mounts (which I prefer) handlebar, fork stem, Ram Ball - and all sorts of others. They do a universal plate that will fit any phone with a flat rear surface. Take a look through their web site it is brilliant quality and so easy to fit / remove and holds well.

Look up ultimate addons for phone cases and mounts. Very reasonable and well made.
