Mounting kits for a Garmin 340LM

Post by BBT600 »

Please see the attached photos of a RAM type ball/bolt for mounting my Garmin. This method uses one of the RT handlebar bolt holes, and uses a bolt with a RAM ball on the end for mounting a satnav type device. Could anyone provide a link to where I can buy one.
Also, the handlebars are secured by 4 bolts, but instead of using allen headed bolt, they use a kind of star headed bolt. Please see attached image 2164. What is the correct term for this type of bolt and what size are used on the RT bars?.  I have a similar type drive, but largest I have is stamped as T30. This isn`t big enough to fit this size of bolt head.

RealOEM says, M8 x 30mm, if there is any doubt, remove one & measure it before ordering the ram mount.
