According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) website, a motorcycle mirror should be clean, in good condition and glued to the motorcycle. If there is a problem with the motorcycle’s mirrors, repairs should be made to ensure the safety of the rider.
What you need: Insulating spanners, cleaning mirror, paper towel mirror, replacement mirrors, replacement glass, TRUNC epoxy insulators, screwdriver.
Inspect the motorcycle mirrors for damage or cracks. Broken motorcycle mirrors must be replaced to ensure safe operation of the machine. Shake each mirror to make sure it is properly attached. Use a wrench to tighten both mirrors. If the motorcycle’s mirrors are loose and vibrating, their visibility will be greatly reduced and blurred. The NHTSA website explains that mirrors are essential because they assist the rider when changing seatbacks and in the general operation of the motorcycle.
Remove the mirrors from the motorcycle with a wrench if vibration continues to be a problem or if a mirror needs to be completely replaced due to ram damage. The Dual Sport Plus website recommends installing the rubber damper in the mirror hole before installing the motorcycle mirrors. Always replace both mirrors if they are damaged to maintain a balanced line of sight. Look for a glass store to replace a cracked motorcycle mirror. Getting a custom glass cut will ensure a proper fit for the motorcycle mirror frame. Carefully remove the old glass with a screwdriver and attach the new glass to the spot using a strong epoxy adhesive. Clean the motorcycle’s mirrors using a glass rim bottle. Dry thoroughly and then wipe the mirrors with a paper towel. Sit on the motorcycle and manually tilt and adjust the mirrors to get the right field of view.
Warnings the mirrors and the spring motorcycle supports must always be checked every time the motorcycle is driven. Failure to see and make the necessary repairs can have dramatic consequences if the motorcycle is damaged by defective parts.
