Mirror rattle

Is there supposed to be a lot of slack in the mirror swivel bases? I have 3/4" free play front to back and 1/2" up and down on the right side. The vibration at idle is kinda annoying

The cut out in the Gen 2 cowl is oblong (see fishe). Sounds like your two mirror bolts have loosened on the capture plate. I notice there are no nuts below the plate so it must be threaded.

I'm not a Gen 2 owner but I'm guessing there is access to the tops of those bolts for removal/tightening maybe under the rubber boot.

The mirrors has 2 studs with 2 10mm nuts. To get access, remove the inner fairing panel.

Already did all that, I think the movement is coming from the swivel mechanism

The mirror pivot has loosened up. If you have access to a press, you can fix it. Otherwise, just buy the Emgo brand replacement mirror for ~$25-30.

I have 2 sets of near mint OEM mirrors for sale in the classifieds if you are interested.

Does anyone know if that little access cover pops off or is it glued in place

I’ve had this problem.

Remove mirror from bike, pop plastic cap over pivot off, find a rod that fits in the hole and secure in vise, this is your anvil. On the other side use a hammer and drift to swege the rivet tighter.

There is a post here somewhere with pics, but I could not find it today.

I do have that 20 ton press sitting in the corner of my shed just collecting dust...

Press is overkill. A couple solid whacks and you are all good

I have one that is a little loose as well, and have access to brake press. Is there an easy way to pop that cap off without buggering it up?

tiny blade screwdriver and it pops right off. 3 long tabs hold it in place.






And bench vice is all that is needed. I tried using the 20t press, but the setup kept popping out.
