    Broken mirror removal?

    Hey all,

    Just picked up my bike today.  Mirror is cracked on the left side.  Dealer didn’t notice (maybe it happened on my way home??) but said to get a mirror and he would cover costs.   

    I have ordered one (I could only find a used one on EBay) - is it easy to replace?  I haven’t started to look at how it comes out or how to replace it yet.

    Thanks

    It's not "difficult", but is quite involved as the Instrument Panel fascia has to be removed to access
    the 3 locknuts securing the mirror assembly - the complete Mirror Unit has to be replaced unless
    you can find a Company that will make a custom stick on mirror, from a template of the original.

    This Topic describes : HOW TO : Remove the Instrument Panel !

    Cheers  :821:

    With a little patience and the necessary tools, you can replace them without having to disassemble any of the fairings or instrument panel.
    I have disassembled them about three times and the only thing I have used is a 10-11 fixed wrench and a magnetized extension (in case a nut falls out) and with the magnet I can pick it up.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Hermys shows the left hand mirror assembly, part #T2060071 at $95.26 and free shipping.  They are a good source for parts in the US.

    I did a web searched for "auto mirror replacements", or words to that effect.  Found a company in North London,  close to the Ace Café,  handy for me but a little too far for you.  Though they do mail order, but you have to draw your own template and apply your own glue.    I rode there and the guy used a bit of grease paper to draw the outline of my mirror glass, cut a new mirror, applied some adhesive to the back and stuck it over my broken glass.  it was a perfect fit, still easy to adjust and has stayed stuck for 20k+ miles.   Cost me £10.   You would not be able to tell it form the original mirror.

    Excellent idea!  I have a few custom glass/mirror guys not too far.  Will check them out when weather gets nicer.

    Thanks!
