So Ive got the bike prepped for a nice weekend trip to the mountains. All serviced and ready to roll.. However the left mirror has always been loose. Then the young lad just touched it and it swung away..No prob.. Ill tighten...
Of course the PO probably thought the same thing... Allen head stripped.. OK Just a wee bit of snugness is all I need.. Well... You know the rest..
Snapped bolt - Yes I used a vice grip. Just needed it to hold tight.
Pulled the stock, tapped out the rest of the errant thread and put in new Metric bolt and nut.. Looks horrible and works the same..
Time for new mirrors (go Stock or something slick) I am not really sold with bar ends as I dont really like adding things that can snag..
If I get a used stock mirror, does the small collet in the lever hole need renewing? Its a small tin like sleeve..
Anyway, Ive got 5 days to sort this or go old school.... And twist my head left a lot!
