Mirror question for 1985 GL1200 Aspencade
My 1200 recently took a nap as I was moving it and fell against the garage wall, breaking the right side mirror. The "socket" part of the ball and socket is toast, and I have ordered a new one off eBay.
My question is this: How do I get the existing ball into the socket? Does it just snap into place? Seems odd, since it must be a tight fit to avoid wobbling.
Edit: Maybe it comes with the ball and its shaft already in the socket. Couldn't see it from the eBay picture.
