Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Solved Mirror wobble woes...

Post by jsnape on Tue 06 Aug 2013, 12:16 pm

Hi all,

So my CB500 works shockingly well on the motorway apart from the mirrors, they jiggle around all over the shop + they are rusted and so need replacing anyway. There are quite a few options on ebay but I was hoping prior to purchase to get some sagely advice first as I'd prefer not to replace one wobbly pair with another!

If anyone can recommend or at least advise on what I should be looking for to avoid wobble I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Jon

I have used a few drops of threadlock on the mirror joint. It stops the mirror moving but doesn't prevent adjustment if necessary.

I fitted a pair off a Gilera DNA (I think),the scooter type thingy,anyway they are the same 10mm thread with longer stalks for a better view,they suffered a little distortion at around 70-80 so i got a old cycle innertube i had laying around and cut a couple of strips placing them under the 10 mm thread and on the thread where the actual mirror screws on to the stalk ,the rubber has completely isolated the vibrations and all is now perfectly clear .
I trimmed the rubber as best i could once fitted ,you can still see it a bit but i don't care,i go for practicality than looks.
