Have stock mirrors on a 2005 RG. The right mirror won't stay in place with the engine vibration. After adjusting, it always drifts down after a couple minutes of riding.

The connection between the stem and the mirror is a ball. I don't see anyway to tighten it down.

Any ideas before i start searching for a new mirror purchase?

Thanks!
Phil

Heat the mirror glass and remove it. You'll see the plate that holds the ball tight against housing, a couple raps between the ball and mounting spots with a hammer and blunt chisel will tighten ball up. Clear silicone will hold the mirror back in. Just did one for a friend's sportster.

I have the same problem with my 96 Fatboy. I finally spent $34.95 and bought a brand new new set from HD. In my case the hassle of trying to repair it over and over wasn't worth the effort.

check the back of the mirror there should be 2 screws there tighten those that pulls the plate tighter onto the ball to prevent movement

Get new mirrors, the stock ones are homely, and new ones aren that expensive.

Done that long go, buy the extended mirrors ( n0 more shoulder checks) and lightly crank on the acorn nut, less than a scrip for other extenters:D
