To clarify, when you say socket are you referring to the socket that fits on the new nut they ship as the solution?  I have that one.  I was asking about the size of the Hex socket needed to remove the original nut that gets replaced.  Is that also 26 mm?  Thanks for the info.

I put an inside caliper on the OEM hex bolt and measured 12 mm.  It will take a 26 mm standard socket to install the new bolt the the Ram mount attaches to.  I answered my own question!   :16: Hope this helps someone else. 
I was thinking the same thing! Thanks for measuring it out, 4Bikes!!

Glad I could help. March of 2013 seems so long ago. The ram mount at that location IMHO is a great if not perfect spot to mount a GPS. It works with the tank bag too.

Make sure you get the 26mm and the huge allen head for that mount... it's on there TIGHT too. other than that it works well.

You will come out A LOT cheaper going this route:

it simply goes in where the plastic plug is and expands. there's a youtube video for the install, it's not hard at all.


started with the ram squishy stem one, wobbled, spun, didn't work great, and was a huge pita removing and re installing.
the motorcycle lary one is much better,

It's a great product.  Write him and ask him to make more and to make them with a 27mm hex, a more easily obtained socket.
