    Without a rally tower, options for the installation of a phone or GPS to the stock KTM 690 Enduro R are rather limited. Absence of cockpit room leaves handlebars as the only viable option. In order to offer a reliable mounting solution, we have designed Upper handlebar clamp 38/40x90 AMPS.

    Milled out of a single piece of aluminum, Upper handlebar clamp fits majority of KTM and Husqvarna bikes with 38x90 or 40x90 bolt pattern. It can be mounted pointing both forward and backward and provides close to 30mm of back/forth adjustment. 

    AMPS bolt pattern is considered as industry standard, meaning it's used by most GPS and phone mounts. Threads for M4 bolts are formed, not cut, which improves their durability.

    Since I'm using QuadLock protective case for my Samsung Galaxy S22, it was an obvious choice to use their phone mount as well.

    This is the QuadLock hardware I use to attach the phone to the  Upper handlebar clamp 38/40x90 AMPS:

    1. QuadLock Flat rectangle 4-hole base and

    2. QuadLock Lever Head

    Using Weatherproof Wireless charger head is also possible, however, I find it a bit too bulky to be used as a handlebar mount.

    Flat rectangle 4-hole base uses the same bolt pattern as our Upper handlebar clamp, so 4 x M4x12 or M4x15 countersunk bolts are all it takes to fix it to the bike.

    QuadLock Lever Head is simply bolted to the base with one bolt.

    Once the Lever head is fixed to the Upper handlebar clamp, phone easily attaches to it.

    Mounted horizontally, the phone doesn't obstruct instrument cluster and, more importantly, warning lights.

    Phone can be charged by connecting cable to the USB plug on the left side. This is not ideal as, in long run, vibrations can damage USB port on the phone.

    This setup has a great advantage as the phone sits low, close to the handlebars. This means it's not exposed to branches and vibrations are kept at a minimum.

    Only drawback I've noticed lies in the fact that the angle of the phone can't be adjusted. However, it is easily readable both while standing and sitting so it's not that big of an issue.

    Phone can also be mounted in vertical orientation, but then it's blocking the instrument cluster.

    All in all, this is a simple, sturdy and reliable way of mounting the phone. Definitely worth checking out.
