RAM Stem Mount Install Question

Anyone done the stem mount option? The rubber expansion plug is designed to fit stem I.D. up to 1.25". Slip it in, find the interference point and cut to fit so that allen bolt tightening holds it like a bar end weight.

My '08 CBR stem is <1", but the expansion plug drops clear thru to the shoulder of the plug which is larger than the stem and does not taper in like a wine cork. What gives?

Of course, like all great projects I need to ride it tomorrow morning.

Like all good projects it resulted in some cutting, some shaving, some measuring ..... repeat. Lopped the conical section of the expansion plug off and then started whittling the barrell section until it fit the stem with the help of the 'ol rubber mallet. The Zumo 450 stayed nice and tight over the weekend and across some pretty rough Forest Service backroads.
