When I bought my FJR I thought that the mirrors were far to tight on their mountings. If I am filtering I like looser mirrors so that if I clip a car mirror mine just folds back with no damage. I removed both mirrors, took away one of the washers and re arranged the others so that the mirrors are far easier to fold in - seems to work and if it should fall over far less chance of breaking the fixing.

I applied a layer of epoxy (Permatex) last night, it seems to be holding up pretty good. Wondering if i should put another layer on top today.

Sorry to hear about this. Were you actually sitting on the bike when you rolled it off center stand? If not, that certainly sounds like risky business...I always sit on it and give it a good push forward and it just rolls off easily...

This topic was covered thoroughly in this thread -> https://www.fjrowners.com/forums/9-f...ter-stand.html. PLEASE let's not go through that again.

The trouble is, when the bike falls down, the mirror is forced upwards, not forward or backwards.

I was sitting on the bike when rolled off, i lost footing when the forks bounced and went to the right side. The mirror was forced upwards when it came in contact with a shelf in the garage.

I am happy to report the epoxy is holding up good, i took a spin earlier this evening and no problem at all.

I took me a good amount of time to put the dashboard and battery panel back together. the center top 2 screw on the dash board is very difficult to screw back on. Is like it is not catching the threads. any ideas?
