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