hi wingers

my stock gl1200 '84 came
with 'mirrors on sticks'.
they're really ugly.
these were for the uk market.
i've now found a pair of honda oem
fairing mirrors. one is nos, the other
light use!

q) i was advised that i need
special honda bolts, i've found
2 on ebay. how many of these
bolts are required in each mirror
please, 1 or 2?

q2) are these mirrors adjustable?
when i opened the nos one, it was
stiff? i expected the mirror to move,
like the four+ wheel vehicle mirrors!
mine is very stiff, wouldn't move?

many thanks wingers!

Angel :)

There are two per mirror, one a bit longer they the other. The mirrors are very stiff to move.

The mirror itself does not move but the whole case/frame that houses the mirror moves and I think it would be very hard to move if it was not mounted on the bike.

That's correct. There is only one ball that moves on those and it is directly below the square frame housing the mirror. Be glad it moves hard. The problem with these is that they loosen up eventually and move when you go over harder bumps.

Yep, 2 bolts. The threading should be the same length but the shaft from the threads to the bolt head are of different lengths. You should be able to look at the inset where the bolts go and see why that makes sense.

There is also a mounting plate inside the fairing that these mount to. If yours is from the UK market with a different mirror as you indicated, are you sure the mounting plate is there? Should be directly behind the front speaker area.

MG9 ....

the allen bolt (placed by previous owner) is one of the mounting places and the screw on the other raised portion.

The third screw is actually holding the mirror bracket in place when the mirrors are removed

I don't know what the bracket is that is held on with the hexagon bolt, it is not on the diagram.

You could use any metric bolt that would fit, 50 mm long one with a 17mm spacer 12mm OD and one with 25mm spacer 12mm OD, center drilled to the dia of the bolt
