Purchase a RAM mount for my GPS (should be coming mid-week), so I took a look to see if I could easily remove the black rubber/plastic cap that covers the fork stem.

Long story short, It doesn't sem to want to budge, and I don't want to scrape anything if I don't have to (figure a flathead screwdriver could do some damage).

Anyhow, figured I would post to see how others got theirs out, hopefully with zero damage.

Thanks in advance

Wrap a small piece of electrical tape around the blade of the screwdriver, use both hands to control the screwdriver and you should be able to get it off without doing any damage.

I have a couple small flat blade screwdrivers that I set up with a piece of heat shrink tubing over the blade, which I use for exactly what you're doing.

-I pried it out with it a plastic trim removal tool. I reckon you could punch it out from the bottom with a long bladed screwdriver or something similar.

It's hollow the whole way through? Hmm, that doesn't sound like that bad of an option if it is.

Remove the steering stem nut and pop it out. 39 mm socket if I remember correctly.
Doesn't the nut hold anything in place? (as in, isn't it supporting something?) If not, then what's its function in the first place?
