GL1500 Mirror Screws are a Pain, Fixed Now

While pulling my bike apart for the 50th time since I have had it.
I noticed that the Phillip screws that hold the mirror on were getting kind of chewed up.

I have replaced the screws on Every Goldwing I have owned.

What you need are SIX M5-30 Cap head screws.
Or you can get the Button Head for low clearance.

M5 is the Size, 30 is the length.

Now you can use an Allen Head Wrench to take them out and tighten them.
And the Bondhaus Ball End Hex wrenches are a dream for this application.

You will thank yourself numerous times when you have to remove or remount your mirrors.

Plus the socket heads wont strip like the Phillip Heads do.

I too have cursed the screws over and over.
That is why I replace them with socket heads and using the Ball end Hex wrenches makes the job a pleasure.

I am always looking for little things like that.

Have a GREAT WEEK Guys.
