HELP. Something Stuck in Stem Hole Thing!

EDIT: SOLVED! I put a steel wire through the small rubber hole, then tied the bottom wire around a small hook screw: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pro...537b6_1000.jpg

Then I got a cue tip that I dipped in olive oil & lubricated the inside of the HOLE. Afterwards, I got the top wire, which I will be pulling, & wrapped it around a steel rod which I was gonna use to pull the rubber thing up. It took a good 2 minutes but it popped out!!

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR SUGGESTIONS, IT WAS GROUP EFFORT! & LIKE ALWAYS, THIS FORUM HAS HELPED ME TIME & TIME AGAIN thank you so much!!

I was installing my ram mount. I've done it before successfully but this time, the world is sending me a message that I shouldn't ever touch anything on this bike because each time I do, something goes wrong.

I pushed in the ram mount rubber thing into the stem hole thing(I have no clue what that's called) and I was tightening it and I thought it wasn't tight enough so I was going to make some adjustments but I accidentally loosened it too much that it came apart inside the hole the rubber thing is stuck inside the hole. I'm terrified because I don't even know what that hole is supposed to do.

Long story short:

There's a rubber thing stuck in the hole. I pushed it down a little further out of anger with a steel rod thingy. What should I do? Should I push it down further but will it come out the other end? ..is that even possible? PLEASE HELP WHAT DO I DO?

Image attached below of THE HOLE.

You need a steel hook thingie, get in there and excise the demon. Or super long needle nose pliers.

If rubber piece has a hole, use a hook made from wire hanger for instance to pull it out.

There's no room in there to use pliers or even a steel hook thing

Could pushing it down all the way work instead? There was a nut below the rubber piece that just fell through onto the ground. I wanted to ask before doing anything further.

You will need to move the brake line to free the hole on the bottom to push the rubber down and out.

That black rubber thing is what's stuck in the hole.

Sorry for asking more questions but where's the brake line & how do I move it?

You should be able to hook that. If not the brake line is right below the hole on the bottom of the stem. Remove front fender, you will see a plastic cover, remove it. Next, move the brake line T connector. That will expose the stem hole.

You can push it down through the other end. But you need to look under the triple, there is a trim piece you might need to remove to let rubber piece freely fall. I had to do this when I used a triple front stand.

So I pushed a small wire through to see where it exactly comes out through, I can see that there is something that kind of restricts it to fall through like you said. I guess there's no other way but to push it through.

Just a thought, since it's a small rubber piece....if left there, would it be a bad thing?
