The weakest point on the GL1100 (in my mind at least) has always been the mirrors. I usually only get 2-3 years out of a set of mirrors before they start getting too loose. I've tried Loc-Tite, sealant, shortening the screw, and JB Weld.

I've just JB Welded my mirrors, which normally adds at least a year or two to their use, but I know that the first time someone (including me) bumps into them and breaks them loose again I'll have to replace them right away. Plus now they aren't adjustable anymore.

Does anyone know a better way to extend the life of the 1100 mirrors?

It's where they are slipping on the ball. There is a screw and spring setup that is supposed to keep them tight but adjustable, but after a while they're only one for two. After I JB Weld them they're one for two the other way.

After asking the question I found the following thread from just last month: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums...8-how-do-i-fix-old-floppy-gl1100-mirrors.html

This seems to be a common question with the only permanent solution being to remove the fairing mirrors and replace with handlebar mirrors. This looks a little odd to me but that is probably just a matter of getting used to them.
