Vito, if you will post this question in the "Technical forum" it will be exposed to many more folks who may be able to answer . Sadly not everyone looks into the new members introductions.

If I remember correctly, someone had shared his experience to remove the mirror in this forum, he was saying he had used hot water but not given more details.

Here is that post.

"Jeg har fundet lĝsningen. Kogende vand, og tospise bords knive Har lige et gammelt originalt sidespejl liggende, som kunne bruges til dette eksperiment."

"I have found the solution. Boiling water, and two-piece table knives Just have an old original side mirror that could be used for this experiment."

Like many others I don't think I have ever taken one apart. It does seem the glass is glued on as the last step judging by the pictures I found at eBay. The nut for the ball stud seems to be under the glass so I bet it needs to be removed in that oreder. I also agree that some type of heat would help soften the glue. See attached.

I bought a pair of mirriors and I am going to try a couple of things on how too get that mirrior off. I want too put turn signals in mine so you dont see them till they lite up. I bought the mirriors cheap so I dont mess up my mirriors on my bike.

Its almost too bad I am going too do it too these two mirriors as they are in great shape with the chrome on the back side of them. They are Dark Blue and I think they came off a 1992or 1993.

Red, from these pictures I understand that the mirror glass is press-fit, no glue is used, so I think the plastic around the glass needs to be softened to pull out the glass.

Guess you are right Erd. How have you been?
Good find John. I thought I saw something at one time in my travels, but couldn't find it for the life of me.
