I just received my 6300. I am using a West Mountain Radio Clr Speech speaker. I am only getting one side of the audio. It has a mono plug. Would the proper thing to do be to put a mono to stereo adapter on the plug? Would this cause any technical problems?

Yes, the speaker jack requirements list a powered stereo PC speaker.  If you're hearing audio, then the Clear Speech speaker must have an internal amp.  You probably should just use a stereo plug wired for one side only (left or right), but not one that shorts the output together unless someone from Flex says you can safely do that.  Your mono plug is shorting one side to the common (ground?) when you plug it in, so I wouldn't do that!
