Phone Mount Question

I was wondering if anyone has mounted a phone holder on their bars and somehow ran a charging cable out the backside of the jukebox compartment up the forks and up the handlebars to the phone. Obviously there would have to be enough “slack” in the cable coming out of the fairing to allow the forks to go from lock to lock. I would just like to have my phone on my bars but also have it charging and playing my music via the USB. Thanks in advance. I just recently joined and I’m loving this forum!

Regards,
Matt

PS: I searched but didn’t find anything that answered my question

I have used holders from https://www.proclipusa.com/ for years. There is a hardwired option, that I mount under the seat, run the cable up under the tank dash to the gauge cluster and to the bars, they have a bar mount, and it charges the phone while docked in the cradle. They are pricey, but they work.

I put on a Ciro phone mount that charges the phone. The only problem is I don't have a 3-inch charging cable that plugs in and has a Note 8 charger in the end. Anyone know of a site that sells 2-3 inch charging cables?

Saw one last week, the guy ran the charging cable inside the bars, and exited out at the left hand control. Had an iomount for his iphone, and a black charging cable. If I run into him again, I'll get some pics and ask what he used.

Thanks for the info so far guys! Ideally I’ll run a charging / Lightning cable out the back of the jukebox compartment and up the bars to the mount.

My Samsung phone has a high speed charger and I didn't want to lose that capability by plugging into the stock Harley cable. So I tapped the power wires behind the 12 volt socket and put a 12V socket behind the fairing. Then I plugged the Samsung fast charger into it and taped it up securely so it doesn't come lose. Then I ran a cord out the fairing under the riser to my clutch cable up to my bar mount. Now I can quickly recover my charge to 100% after heavy usage even while using the phone for GPS and streaming. The stock Harley cord barely maintained the current battery level, forget about charging it if I'm using it.
