Pick up one from the accesories display @ the dealers, you change the lower half of the left side controls clamp on the bars and it uses a threaded ball that the holder clamps to, took me about 7 minutes from 'let's see about this' to 'hey! it'll hold a pretty big cold drink cup'. Don't know what your passenger would do with their drink-but they pretty much do have both hands free all the time.
You'll need a metric allen wrench set.

Kruzer Kaddy.


Yea, I had that on my past bikes. There seems to be no application for the Vision, am I missing something?

I thought that the Bar Clamp that came with my KK was ugly and mounting on the control cylinders was too in-my-face. I used the piece of flat stock they give you and drilled and tapped my handle bar about halfway to the tree, on the outside. Works great.

Every morning I ride into work with a large 32 oz cup of java (plastic starbucks clear cup). I use the Victory holder with the ram ball on the left side. Works great. The key is the have the mount sticking straight up with a little lean to the back. This way the cup will lean up against the arm and sway around. The holder has 2 hooks which I take a large rubber band to hold in place until I get to work. If i want to drink while riding it requires a smaller cup with out the rubber band holding it in place. Smaller cup the wind will not effect it in the holder.

So you guys that have a Ram Ball mounted toward the outside of the clutch and brake reservoirs must have a different housing than I do. There is no hole tapped on my 2008 Vision Premium Tour.

that's true, you can do your own though as some has done, or buy newer ones with the holes.

I use the reliable Co-Pilot Caddy. She doesn't have much other stuff to do, and she is welcome to sip from my cup while she holds it for me. When I need a sip, she passes me the straw.
BONUS: Auto refills whenever I stop - best Drinkholder EVER !

Rear passenger cupholder = Victory armrests... they have the cupholder under the right arm that swings out.

I just drilled and tapped a hole on the forward side on the left side of the solid handlebars of my 2009 and then screwed the mounting bolt in for the Kruzer Kaddy and mounted the cup holder right onto that.

+1 Don, even though I also have a bar mounted cup holder on my bike as well. There's a bonus with your passenger cup holder to boot. Since she's back there the top of her leg makes a great arm rest for the rider when he needs to rest one or the other.

There are other benefits to the "rear passenger cup holder", but we'll leave that to everybody's imagination. ;-)

A former 'passenger' friend of mine used to wrap one or both legs around my waist so her calf made a dandy arm rest too.

I actually used one of those Aluminum Drink Bottles that are so popular these days. I cut it off, smoothed the cut edge, drilled some holes in the bottom for drainage (rain and spills), and I mounted it with a rubber guarded electrical cable strap with a machine screw, lock-nut, and nylon bushing. I placed it between the clutch reservoir and the handlebars. It's sprayed Gloss Black. Since I waited till I could find a wide bottle to use, it takes up to a 32 oz cup in it. I've been riding with it for about 5000 miles with not slippage, spillage, or other mishaps. Total cost to make $4.00 and about an hour to build for those of us who are semi-handy. If anyone is interested, I can post some pictures.

So after much pondering I decided to go with the Ram Ball set up. It is not very pretty but damn it works great.

G187 Welcome to the forum. We are able to put a standard coffee mug in ours, by this I mean the standard size mug that typically has logos and pictures on them that we give as a gift. Also it will work very well with the standard 32oz Styrofoam soft drink cup that most convenience/gas stations have at the soda dispenser. The 32oz fits snug and still balances well, not tippy. 

PS One other thing that's great about the Ram mount is that it's quick and easy to remove the cup holder and the ball mount can be used for any other accessory holder that Ram makes, cell phone, gps, mp3 player, map holder..............pistol holster.......  LAPTOP!.......... just kidding ;-)   They are somewhat universal in this way.

I wanted to install a cup holder on my bike so I could put a to-go cup from say a fast food place. The ram Ball cup holder will hold a very large cup in that sense. I put 44 oz. Sam's Club styro cups in it yesterday will no issue.

Looks like you have it mounted into the mirror bolt hole on the front brake master cylinder. Did it come with that mounting, or was it special.

I believe with the 2010's and later the threaded hols for mirror mounting are factory. It is very easy to drill and tap the holes yourself if your bike doesn't have them. Ram offers the 1 inch ball mounts with both metric and standard threads. The ball mount sold by victory is metric, I believe 10mmx1.25.
