    Procedure:
    1) Ordered a spare factory storage cap from Yamaha dealer

    2) Drilled a 5/16" hole in cap to fit (1" Ram Tough Ball with 5/16-24"x.625" screw) I also used 5/16" washers, rubber washers, nut & blue Locktight.
    3) Connect (1" Tough Ball) to 1 side of the (Ram Variable Swivel Arm 4")
    4) Connect other side of Swivel Arm to (Ram Mount 1" Ball with Custom GoPro Adapter)
    5) To hold cap, I rigged a metal L bracket which is bolted in with nut.

    Thats it! Very easy!

    Looks good and similar to mine.

    I have the instructions and parts needed for the mod in a project thread for 2012+ FX's. There are some other things you may be interested in, check out the thread:

    I use the storage cap also for a RAM mounted GoPro........I wanted different angles for the same footage...& specifically a mount for slow motion dolphin shots, also rear facing footage.....so came up with this......absolutely rock solid on a short RAM mount.....have not tried it out yet, but should do the trick
