    Stripped mirror

    I've got a mirror and the threads are stripped. Any ideas on how to mount it back on?

    Are the threads stripped on the mirror? Or are the threads stripped for the mount?

    You can get a replacement mirror or mount relatively inexpensive ,bugger fixing them can get real aggravating when you mirrors are moving and buzzing on you out on the road

    I have a drill bit, tap and a thread repair I can send you if you pm me your address. It is standard RH thread, (not the LH thead that one side uses) it will work on either side if you decide to use aftermarket mirrors with standard right hand thread. Let me know if you want to give it a try.

    What a fiasco these mirrors are! The left, clutch side is standard right hand threads and I think metric 10 mm. The right / front brake side is reverse Left Hand threads and near impossible to find a tap to clean them up with. If you buy after market nicer mirrors chances are they will both be standard RH threads. Some after market mirrors come with an adapter to add that changes RH to LH threads but they are the weakest link and break real easy.

    While parked in the woods my kick stand sunk in soft ground and the bike went down on the left, shifter side. No damage at all because the hand guard/bark busters did their job. The right side mirror never hit anything but the BS aluminum LH to RH adapter broke right off leaving the mirror on the ground. I sure wish I could find an after market lever perch that had standard RH threads for the mirror and would also have the socket for the brake light switch.

    My idea, drill the mirror hole oversize and glue in and pin a standard 10 mm RH threaded nut that will accept after market mirrors. Helicoil thread repair does make LH thread repair insert but by the time you buy what you need it is much cheaper to just buy a new perch. JB weld is excellent glue for aluminum repairs.

    GaryL, you are also welcome to use my drill, tap and heli-coil if you want to convert it to RH threads. I will ship it to whomever asks for it first. I only ask that afterwards it gets sent to anyone else that may need it and then back to me. I am happy with the repair on mine. I used aftermarket foldable mirrors so that there is some level "give" if they take a hit.

    For sure the mount, probably both. It's kept at my cabin so I will double check next time I'm up there.
