Side mirrors

Is there any way to tighten them up? One of mine is loose and at high speeds it turns all the way in making it useless.

I'm not familiar with that exact mirror, but they usually have hidden screws to tighten the hinges.

oooh gotcha,

not sure, ill see what i can check on my gsxr design and see if theres anything, the gsxr has lights in it so you can get access to the internals of the mirror, not sure on yours since the mirror is perm attached, its possibly a new part swap item.

That's a new one to me. Good info.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
