How To: Install a Rushmore Road Glide Mount

Rushmore Road Glide Mount

In this ‘How To’ we are going to walk you through the installation the Iron Aces Rushmore Road Glide Mount for ’15 & newer Harley-Davidson Road Glide models.  Similar to how we installed the Street Glide Mount in a previous ‘How To‘ entry, the Rushmore Road Glide Mount is installed using automotive-grade, 3M VHB(Very High Bond) Adhesive. While the adhesive bond formed between the 3M VHB Adhesive and the instrument bezel is an effective way to install the Rushmore Road Glide Mount, it will ONLY provide a lifetime of use when the instructions have been followed step-by-step…we cannot stress this enough, please follow the instructions word-for-word!!

** IMPORTANT **
Iron Aces Speed Shop is not responsible for the operation of the Rushmore Road Glide Mount or its compliance with highway regulatory and safety standards. Please use common sense and do not operate either device while riding your motorcycle. Doing so is at your own risk.

Tools Required

  • Blue Loctite
  • Allen Wrench – 2mm, 3mm & 7mm
  • Phillips Screwdriver

Included in the package with your Rushmore Road Glide Mount are the following installation hardware. This hardware is used to build your Rushmore Road Glide Mount as well as connect virtually any device cradle to it.

Rushmore Road Glide Mount

In Steps 1 thru 3, we will be assembling our Rushmore Road Glide Mount.  As indicated below, this will consist of three pieces 1) the Iron Aces Mount 2) the Rotating Cam 3) the Iron Aces Mount Base.

Rushmore Road Glide Mount

Step 1

Place two nylon lock nuts (nylon end facing out) into the mounting boss channel, prior to attaching the Iron Aces Mount to the Rotating Cam.

Step 2

Using a 2mm allen wrench, assemble the Iron Aces Mount to the Rotating Cam using the supplied cam-to-mount screws. Tighten snuggly.

** IMPORTANT **
Use Blue Loctite on the Iron Aces Mount-to-Rotating Cam screw threads prior to installation to prevent loosening.

Step 3

Using a 3mm allen wrench, assemble the Iron Aces Mount and rotating cam to the Iron Aces Mount base with the supplied base-to-cam screws.

** IMPORTANT **
Do not tighten the base-to-cam screws fully until after the Iron Aces Mount base has been mounted properly to the instrument bezel. The base has a small amount of flex, therefore the fitment will be affected if the base is tightened snuggly.

Step 4

Using the supplied alcohol prep pad, thoroughly clean the instrument bezel surface where the Rushmore Road Glide Mount will be installed.

** IMPORTANT **
Allow the surface to thoroughly dry before moving on to Step 5.

Step 5

Once the instrument bezel has been cleaned using the alcohol prep pad and given ample time to dry, apply a thin, uniform coating of the supplied 3M 94 Primer to the instrument bezel where the Rushmore Road Glide Mount will be installed. Allow the 3m 94 Primer coating to thoroughly dry for at least five minutes before moving to Step 6.

** IMPORTANT **
To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry and applied at room temperature.

Step 6a

Remove the VHB protective film from the bottom of the base and loosely align the Rushmore Road Glide Mount to the instrument bezel. Take extra time for proper center alignment.

** HELPFUL TIP **
The Iron Aces Mount base is profiled to match the profile of the instrument bezel. Use center hole of the Rushmore Road Glide Mount logo for proper centering.

Step 6b

Proper forward alignment will be achieved with the base sits 1/8″ from the front of the instrument bezel.

Step 6c

Proper rear alignment will be achieved with the base sits 1/8″ from the rear of the instrument bezel. Once proper alignment is achieved, press firmly on the Rushmore Road Glide Mount for 30 seconds.

** IMPORTANT **
Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure develops better adhesive contact and helps improve bond strength.

After application, the bond strength will increase as adhesive flows onto the surface. At room temperature, approximately 50% of the ultimate strength will be achieved after 20 minutes; 90% after 24 hours and 100% bond strength is achieved after 72 hours.

Step 7

After the VHB has had 72 hours of cure time, remove the base-to-cam screws. Apply Blue Loctite to the screw threads to prevent loosening, then tighten snuggly.
