Default cell phone on dash

Wonder if anyone has tried using the double sided tapes with the foam center, I would like to mount my cell phone case on the inside of the windshield, would the tape hold up, any specific types work best.

Use the super velcro instead. That way you can pull it off if needed.

That two sided foam tape will likely break down in the sun pretty fast.

Thanks for the tip, where can Super Velcro be purchased.

Won't it be at the wrong angle?

I have a fuse box and horn controller up under each side of the fairing, and I can't find anything that will keep them stuck for more than a few days.

YMMV but be aware, if you get it wrong your phone is going to be screwed. I lost my phone from a waterproof case clamped to the handlebars. I didn't lock it in properly and had to eat $700. I have another case now that holds the phone just fine (but I have it on a leash just in case)

If you really want it there look at the Madstadt windshield bracket and a suitable RAM mount. That's where I have my GPS and it's rock solid.

There are all kinds of inexpensive, universal cell phone / GPS mounts on eBay, that I would consider to be simpler and safer than Velcro. Something like this one would do Coleman - HHM - Radio/GPS/Cell Phone ATV Mount

Amazon is good for that sort of thing too. Might be a few more bucks, but the shipping and return policy is rock solid.
