Tighten Mirrors

Recommended Posts

scat2me

Is there a special tool to tighten the stock mirrors ?  I removed the top cap and there is a 10 mm nut . I can't find a thin wall socket that will fit inside to tighten it.   Area in red is loose. Nut is under cap 17

You shouldn't need a socket to tighten the mirrors - a spanner should be used on the hexagonal mirror base. 

One of the mirrors is reverse thread too.
