RAM mount bolt unmatched thread

Greetings, Tried installing RAM-B-367-UN10U iphone mount but the bolt threading is long and loose on my 2020 fjr. Can any one advise a fix? Does anyone know the right bolt size that I may order online? Please advise. Thanks

Grind or cut a piece off the end of it.

This is the RAM ball with the hole in it for a bolt.... check the threads and length of the bolts they gave you... threads as calboy says...

Calboy: You are so on the money. I wish I had seen this post before I drove all the way to Home depot and bought an M10 bolt to test out the right size. And yes!! M10 1.25 is indeed the right size. I have ordered it through Amazon. Hope to have it by Friday.

Now the waiting begins.

Thanks again....

Thanks for the response.. but I guess the pic was not very clear.. The problem is that it came with an M8 bolt hence loose. Now that I have ordered a M10... I should be good to go...

The RAM mount with the hole in is M8. You cannot fit a M10 bolt through a M8 hole to make it work. The threaded hole by the clutch reservoir is a M10 (metric 10). 1.25 pitch.

Get the part I gave you the number for and you'll have a perfect fit.

The new M10 fit like a glove. Thanks for all the help.
