Slipping mirrors
« on: June 22, 2013, 09:29:37 PM »
Hi guys, I like the standard mirrors and they work fine but every time I hit a pot hole (ouch) or go on a long ride, the right mirror slips and changes position. Any ideas how to tighten them...would this be a warranty issue? It's only 2 weeks old!

I think it depends where it's moving

There are 2 obvious nuts on the mirror stem that should be tight.

The mirror still rotates on it's stem, but only with a reasonable amount of force, it shouldn't move on its own.

Yeah mine slipped too but after a closer look I found I was only tightening at the main nut. There is another spot above it I think that you have to do first. I sorted it all out when attaching my mirror extenders and now its all good. You might need to drop in to your local workshop and play dumb and get them to do it. The booklet that came with it tells you bugger all.
