I've got the bolt on 'ring' one I show at the top + the 2 bottom pic pieces on my FJR...Holds my phone pretty well. Great for navigation.

The FJR had a vestigial mirror mount boss...so I just threaded in a 12mm bolt and it works well. Probably should have painted it...

I used this mount on my bike. I know they sell mounts for newer phones. I sold the bike years ago. The mount held up awesome through many rides.. Bumpy and flat alike.

Uh...yeah. It sandwiches the triple tree plate between the nut below the plate...You NEED something there.

Just taking it off will not hurt anything if you are going to replace it with another fastener before you ride it again...Is that what you're asking?

I don't...did a quick Google search and only info on socket/wrench size for it. Doesn't seem that anyone lists the thread pitch...and it's a problem of semantics because the word 'thread' is so common on forums.

Keep in mind that MANY Suzuki bikes use the same cap nut so it may be worth the gamble to order one for a more common bike of the same vintage (like a GSXR) if you come across one. If it doesn't fit...you can always send it back.
