Can someone give me a step by step for dummy's guide on how to remove the stock mirrors on a bonneville se?



I tried loosening the two allen screws and trying to twist off the mirror but that didn't work. I'm now thinking of removing the nut ("A" in picture). But I think I rather save myself some potential grief and ask for your help.

That is a little mean-spirited, TerryK. Everyone who monkeys with motorcycles has to start somewhere. To someone unfamiliar with things mechanical, it is a foreign land. When a stranger asks where is the bathroom, you don't tell him to go home. You tell him where is the bathroom.

^ And a good place to start is with mirrors, accessories, etc. In no time the OP will be adjusting the valves. :)

I say, go for it!
But, you may want to make friends with someone that has tools and a bit more knowledge.

I try to do as much work on my bikes as I can and I've learned alot tackling some tough jobs. However, I also know my limitations and won't hesitate to ask for help or take it to a tuner/professional when warranted.

A is correct. Those hex bolts take the whole assembly off. Just move that black piece up and loosen the nut.

Terry, I sure hope you never need something on this board. You should expect no help and a lot of snide answers. Of course, the rest of us are much nicer, so you probably won't. But that's what you deserve.
