Mirror trim removal
« on: May 18, 2016, 03:42:59 pm »
I Effed up.  Grabbed the bottle NEXT to the GooGone. Oops!  :233:
I was removing some left over adhesive from a safety/dealer sticker on the right mirror and the "other" stuff discolored the black plastic trim piece below the mirror.  My fault for not paying closer attention.  The interesting part is that the plastic trim piece along the outer edge must be a different grade of plastic because it was not damaged.

Oh well.  Amazingly, you can order that one piece of plastic separately.  I expected to have to buy an entire mirror assembly.  So..... before I get too involved with dis-assembly, will the entire fairing have to be removed?  I haven't really looked at what is involved yet, but figure I need to do it myself to pay penance.

Oh No! Is that contagious???  :150:  I was near a silver Trophy at the dealership.  I'd better alert them.  There may be an epidemic.   :008:

Surprisingly NOT expensive.  $30 may be a lot for one small piece of plastic, but better than buying a complete mirror assembly like I was expecting.

The other part that wasn't damaged is actually rubber. The way the parts fit together, it has to be quite flexible to be able to put together and take apart.

Hi kenw,

Mirror Trim removal is fairly straight forward...

RH Mirror ?

Flip it from the outside so it springs inwards toward the Tank, this exposes the Indicator Unit bolt
Disconnect Indicator Unit, undo bolt and remove Indicator.
This will expose the necessary fasteners you need to undo to remove item #14 by gently sliding it forward and then the fasteners for item #8 (the bit you're replacing) in the attached exploded view...

Re-assemble in reverse order..

Hope this helps

Thank You!
That is exactly what I needed. 
Maybe this won't be so painful after all.  Shouldn't say that yet.....

And, that other piece is CLEARLY rubber.
Sheesh!  So much for my keen powers of observation.
It's good to say something stupid, occasionally, just to keep you humble.
Now, where is that embarrassed emoji??
Thanks again.
Great forum!

Hi kenw, glad you can now get it sorted  :028: ,  let us know how the fix goes and `post ' a couple of photos if you get the chance that may assist others with the same problems in dismantling the mirrors   :821:
