It works well with the heritage dash, same size bolts. If you look in my photos you can see my sunglasses hanging from the RAM ball.
I did have to use Loctite to stop it coming loose.

I have in fact been wanting that solution, but had not found the exact parts to do it. I’ll consider that a kick to the backside wink

I’ll forego the clock for now. Love the look of it but already have one on the digital display so seems a bit superfluous.

The clock is simply stuck on with velcro: https://time4bikes.com/British-Made-VerSa-Darkside-Billet-Casing-with-Black-Clock

I forget who suggested it, but the bolt-in dash clock holder is

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clip-for-1-Stopwatch/123865766407 - I think I needed to use a longer bolt though!

I use the following clock to fit. Really its a watch face but does the job!
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Premium-...sert-movement-for-52mm-hole/292617518167

The analog clock I find useful as the tonneau makes the digital miniclock difficult to read (and really I need to be watching the road not studying some tiny dash display!).

But why buy the RAM ball with the female socket and then have to cut a bolt when you can buy the RAM version with a bolt?

Bear in mind that the above advice is for a mount to fit Garmins. The Alternative Parts List has a source for the smaller threaded ball to fit TomToms. I cut the head off a 6" bolt which we substituted for the LH lower dashboard fixing screw. We secured it with a 15mm long nut and screwed the ball onto the other end. Simple.

Here’s the Ram type ball I used on Amazon.

It comes with M6 longer bolts, but is not Ram branded.

I remember there is a M6 version. But it's just 6mm long. The screws of our dashboards are 20 mm (standard) or 35 mm (heritage). That's why I did not used the M6x6mm RAM ball. As this ball will be holding a large smartphone and under heavy vibrations, a long thread with locktite is IMHO needed. With 6 mm thread insert, I bet this ball will get loose permanently.

On mine the RAM ball had a through hole and came with 3 different length M6 bolts - the longest of which was good for the standard dash.

The RAM parts list is a bit of a minefield!

I love the look of a wooden steering wheels but i also like the feel of the softer standard wheel.
So my first attempt was to dress it up with the center hub. So far I like the look. Much better than looking at three screw heads.
