Ram mount - mounting points help!

Hey guys, picking up my new 2018 next week, had an r3 before and mounted a ram ball mount in about the same location as shown in the pic. Since I donít have the new bike yet, I can only go by the parts diagram which shows nothing there!, and the black caps Iíve seen covering these holes in person. Wondering if there are screws in these holes already, and if so, is it ok to replace with longer one to secure ram mount on top? Are these holes even threaded? Thanks!

Those holes in the top triple is where the clip-ons are bolted in.

Thanks!, I suspected this, Iím guessing some would advice not to mess with these bolts.....definitely most ideal for the parts I already have though, and placement. Donít want to buy the gas tank mount or the expanding rubber mount that many have trouble with.

Would this not get in the way of a tuck though? Like the mount!

Re: Ram mount - mounting points help!

I donít think it would be a big deal to use that place to mount it. If youíre using a longer bolt and torquing it correctly. Aftermarket clip-ons donít use that bolt at all.

That bolt is mainly for proper bar alignment.

It does a little, but it will come off for track days or racing.

Why not? They are not a super critical bolt. You can remove and put a longer one in to accomodate your mount. Some steering dampers piggy back off those holes. You must have a <38" chest if the stock bar position works for you. I always have to clock mine out a few inches to almost straight.

Thanks to you and everyone! Honestly I gave the bolt more credit because it is keeping the clip on in alignment right? Otherwise, we’re relying solely on the clamping force of the other bolt to keep the grip from pivoting under force, right?

You also make a good point about the width of them! Honestly I haven’t even ridden it yet, but when I have sat on it I did feel the grips were fairly close together, but didn’t even consider the possibility or option of rotating them to spread them apart, is this a fairly common thing to do? Obviously the angle of them will change along with widening them...
