Hi,

I currently have my Ram Mount mounted via the fork stem however I'm looking to install a steering damper that will require relocating the Ram Mount. From the Ram mount site, it's not clear which other bases would be compatible with the R6. Does anyone know or have experience with an alternative location for the Ram Mount? Thanks

I had a Scott steering damper installed on my old R6.

I actually had one of the ram balls mounted using one of the steering damper mounting bolts. Worked pretty well with with of their longer arm extensions and an iPhone 6 case.

Thanks for the reply. Based on what you said, is this the set up you had with your damper? - https://www.rammount.com/part/RAP-B-272-A-UN7U
Not sure I understand 100%. If you have any pictures of that setup, it would be appreciated.

Actually did you use this? - https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-367U

So I used that ball in the second link.

So you buy the ball, the arm and the phone holder (I have the large X-grip now for my Note 9 and it fits well - also make sure you always use the included rubber tether. I suggest you get this so you can use it with different phones) just make sure the x grip you buy comes with that same ball on the back. They make a few different ones.

Oh and that arm in the picture is the shorter one. I suggest getting the longer one. It gives you more adjustment.

Here is a crudely drawn picture of my bike setup before I fitted the ram mount. Unfortunately I don't have any other pictures.
