Ram ball for center stem?
« on: September 11, 2018, 02:08:51 pm »
Can someone tell me where I can get a ram ball for the center stem on the fork? I thought motorcycle larry sold these, but I can't find it on their website.

I had trouble finding them a few months ago when assisting with another poster.  Motorcycle Larry was the only one I had seen, I think.

Several risers are available with RAM mount right on them.  Seems most everyone uses risers, so that is one solution if nothing else surfaces.  (It is what I use)

If you already have risers that do NOT have a RAM mount, you can tap it for one.

Yeah, I saw something similar to that but thought it was a bit strange and doesn't look particularly strong.  A Zumo is pretty heavy/big...

hmmmmmm
this sounds strangly like something I offered some input on just yesterday...

http://forum.cog-online.org/accessories-c14/need-help-gps-install-disaster/msg648537/#msg648537

they sell ball mounts also...

so if you have mega risers and wedges for your bars installed... you need a 'taller' stem (higher) stem mount... mmmm kayyyyyy???
I found this. Looks sturdy enough to mount my Garmin 595 on so I can get it in the center of the bars.

that won't do...

I don't really care for 'ball' mounts myself,  but if that's wanted, they are strong enough for any GPS, including my old 2610... but the shorter the stem, the stronger and least vibratory they are..

I like the control cap mounts because of that. Brings it closer to the eye also.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

They are actually strong and secure.
