I use the X-grip meant for 7-8 inch tablet. Although my Tab S2 is just on the likit to fit. https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-HOL-UN8BU
It has 1" ball mount and then there handle mounting bracket for the 12mm Honda bar from Ram as well as short arm between the two 1"/size B ball mounts.

Are the all the 4 pin adapter cables for OBD2 all the same?  I can find a 4 pin for Yamaha but nothing for Honda.  The cables look physically the same

Changed the tablet from Samsung Tab S2 8" to Lenovo M7 7" tablet. This fits a lot better. Now Lenovo tab will have motorcycle settings for display like big font size, full brightness, etc. Spotify works well with  a widget on the desktop and google maps navigation is good. Although Lenovo has worse resolution but as it is an IPS screen it is more visible in sunlight. It was cheap as well so not so big of an issue if it breaks.

I am a little bit confused...
I thought the 19 model has a 6 pin connector for obd2.
@Nevartu: How did you manage to use a 4pin adapter with it?

Does that M7 work ok? I almost bought one until I saw some reviews and they were very poor...the price has dropped so much on them that they can be had around mid 50 gbp....some places have dropped selling them.
The 7" does look better in there but the micro USB puts me off as it just is so weak.

I'm also curious about this.  I have the Fission ap and would love to read some data from the bike.  What adapter is required?

Correct.
13-18 models have red 4 pin standard Honda diagnostic connector, communicating with K-line protocol.
19+models use an entirely new ECU, they have a 6 pin connector, and communicate with OBD. Unfortunately I have no information on what OBD standard it uses, but I have the wiring diagram if someone wants to build a cable and wishes to try communicating with the ecu.
To the member who asked about the Yamaha 4 pin connector, sorry I have no clue, I work on Honda bikes only.

Do have a pic and the wiring diagram of the 6 pin connector that you could post up?  I haven't got my new bike yet and I'm sure I could come up with something to read the data.
