The economical drink holder is designed to attach to the handlebar clamp screws with a chrome ABS mounting bracket. The drink holder swivels to prevent drinks from spilling and the holder folds-up when not in use. Holds a 12 ounce drink can with adjustable arms. Black. Fits the GL1500 and GL1800. Single.
I have one and had to modify with a small spring to keep the arms together enough to hold a can or bottle. Bottom hinge where it folds is not very sturdy either. Broke it off after one summer use. Would not purchase again. Plus, cheapest cup holder on the market.
The cup holder looks good, but functionally is not what I expected. The arms are not stiff enough and eventually lose their grasp of the cup or bottle, the bracket does not support the cup holder without a lot of vertical flexing.. Not super happy with this unit.
I like that it folds up and out of the way. There's not of space for a cup holder on an 1800. Now for the bad. It swings. If your cup is short, and I mean SHORT, you will not have a problem but an average height stainless could turn upside-down. The jaws that hold the cup open easily and open wide enough that your cup could fall out. I found I was concentrating on keeping my cup from falling out I was paying enough attention on the road. I am going to try to fix these serious design flaws. Maybe securing it so it doesn't swing and adhesive lined heat shrink to keep the jaws from opening.
Have owned for 1 year. Not for heavy use or for a wide variety of mugs. It does have a widely adjustable throat area at the top and it won't loosen during a ride but there is nothing to lock in the bottom of the mug--the bottom just sits on the slick platform. The item does swivel to allow for turning corners but if you want the item to return to its original upright position after the turn, it is limited to short to med height mugs with 10-12 oz of liquid in my opinion. It works but is not constructed well enough to hold heavy or taller mugs (it won't break but when it swivels, not only will it not return to its upright position but the next time you turn a corner, it will go further out of adjustment). My suggestion would be to get it if you seldom use a holder and you want your holder to fold away when not in use. Perfect for that type of user and looks nice when folded. Stabilizing hint--leave a short foam pop-can drink holder on the unit at all times (one that also has foam on the bottom) and then insert your mug into that. It will stop the mug from sweating, it will help it not to move sideways near the base when it swivels and it even stabilizes the mug near the adjustable throat area.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
