Center nut with Ram ball

I am looking for a center nut with a Ram ball on it. Anyone have one they want to sell or know the name of the company that sells them?

Sounds like the name of an "adult toy". LOL

I believe Yamaha has something like that you can order. It replaces the standard stem nut. Also look at Techmount.

MCL (Motorcycle Larry) has them available for a little over $20.

Motorcycle Larry has one. It is thicker than OEM where the RAM ball mounts.

If you get that, and I have one, you will find a deep 36mm socket very handy for removing the nut in future.

The reason is that it is hard to remove the ball without taking the handlebars off, especially if you have risers fitted. A regular depth socket won't go over the ball, but a deep socket will. They are about $10 on Amazon.

As advised by Steve (above) - you can pickup a 36mm IMPACT SOCKET. They are single-hex, and have enough "play" to allow a couple of layers of painters tape on the nut so it doesn't get marked by the socket.
