To have adequate clearance of clutch reservoir to mount a Ram X-Grip phone holder , what length of extension from Ram is recommended here? I was thinking 3" inch like the one in the attached photo, but hard to tell in FJR photos. I don't own an FJR just yet so unable to measure myself. Thanks in advance.

Don't know about your RAM x-grip holder but the top of the ball screwed into the socket on the clutch side is already above the clutch reservoir.

You can also get a RAM offset mount instead of the ball that screws into the threaded hole. Held to the reservoir hole with an appropriate bolt. I used to have one like the one on the right.

If you want one on the other side, you can get one that is designed to mount over the brake reservoir. Never tried one but it should work.

I have this RAM mount plate that goes over the clutch reservoir. I use it with a 2" extension (shorter than the one you show) and a tablet mount for Kindle or iPad size devices. Plenty of clutch clearance and plenty of instrumentation visibility even with a tablet mounted.
