Red face 2012 FJR Mirror Re-Install

Hello folks,

I took my mirrors off to store my FJR in my basement and now I am getting it ready for the riding season. I go to put the mirrors back on and guess what I can't remember how to reverse the process. I have 6 washers and nut and no matter how I do it the won't work as before. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

If you look at the washers closely you will see they are concaved/spring washers. IIRC you need to stack them half one way and the other the opposite, which creates the tension at the mirror base..I hope this makes sense.

There is no better therapy than a ride.

Need clarification, please!

I just moved from California to Tennessee and the movers removed my right mirror and did not reinstall it properly. Petey says to stack them a certain way. This could be a really dumb question, but: how do I stack them exactly? 3 curved up on top of 3 curved down? I want to make sure before I tighten it down, because the movers nearly stripped the nut. Thanks for the help!

First thing you have to do is

Make sure the 3 little ball bearings are still in place. Also make sure you have the metal plate that goes in there.

Removing the mirror as you guys describe allows the detent balls to fall out. No matter how you arrange the Belleville washers underneath, your mirror will never stay in place without the detent balls. Unfortunately I cannot refer you to a parts diagram as I have never found one that shows the detent balls nd plate.

Now to the question at hand. When installing the Belleville washers, the first one goes on concave down. The next one goes on concave up. The two of them together will form a UFO shape. See? Then assemble the next two just like that and install. Repeat two more times. That's it!

why did you take them off? They can fold forwards so they don't stick out at all.

Ugh! Don't get me started. The movers took it off without asking me. I didn't find out until we unloaded the bike in Tennessee. All they had to do was ask me, and I would've shown them how to safely move the mirror forward.

Thanks, rbentnail! That's what I needed to know!

Old thread but glad I found it. I dropped my bike in the yard DUH broke my right hand mirror off at the end. When I removed the acorn nut all those washes fell out. I read my FSM and looked at the diagram on Parts Shark where I ordered two new matching 2008 AE mirrors and they don't show the washers, 3 ball bearings and shoulder bolt. I followed Rbentnails instructions this morning ( glad the ball bearings stayed in the plate)............my repaired mirror works again.

Thanks

Me too Russ, it was getting frustrating after several times of installing those 8 washers. There is nothing about washers in FSM or the parts diagram I could find on Parts Shark where I ordered new mirrors from Sat.
