I doubt you will buy one on it's own. Kuryakyn make a nice set with a fold away cup holder. Alternatively you can buy add on cup holders for your arm rests. I think Butler make them.

Save your money and get the 'Butler cup' they are the only cup holders that work the way the rest of them should.

I have been through almost all of them, and the Butler Cups are great, plus their customer service is outstanding too.

I have the Kuryakyn armrests. The problem with them is that unless your passenger keeps his or her hand on the drink bottle/cup, going over a bump will see it fly out of the holder.

After searching and not really liking anything I found (plus they are outrageous on the pricing), I went to my local bicycle shop and purchased one of these for $10.

I am making a bracket (metal cost $10) to attach to the armrest under the pad. I will post pics when I get it done.

Just wondering if you have this project completed? Would love to see some pics of your passenger cup mount.

LOL, these are the some ones I had on my 110O and the same one's I just installed on the 1200.

They hold the drinks securely. look good, and if something happens, they're cheap and easy to replace.

Here is the end result. I am gonna redo the metal that the holder is mounted onto. This was actually a "quick" fix and I just haven't gotten around to doing it the way I want yet.

I like the holder itself...you can make minor adjustments to fit the size bottle by bending the holder to fit. The reason it sits so much lower than the armrest is that it was intended for the taller Smart Water bottles. The top of those fit just under the top of the armrest.

Although designed for the 1800, these works great on the 1500 too.
