I use an X grip as well, for my Droid Turbo. Got a RAM ball on a flat mount that the left mirror bolt goes through. I also use the X on my other bike, a Kawasaki Concours 1400. The ram ball mount is attached to the back side of the clutch assy. I prefer the X on my left, so that my throttle hand stays on the throttle. Gonna get another of the mirror bolt mounts for my newest bike, a DRZ400.
I like the X just fine, but if others think it's junk, I really want to know why. Often it's smart to listen.
