Tighten mirrors?

I have a K75c with the handlebar mounted factory mirrors. Is there a way to adjust them so that I can increase friction? The left one always blows out of adjustment when riding over 60. I looked in the manual and the shop manual but I didn't see anything.

LOL, not sure about moving it to an RT.

I can't suggest much because I have a K1200GT, they tighten with an allen key, it's always the left one that becomes loose, this is because it's always trying to undo the thread. Does make you wonder why they don't put a reverse thread on that side, then I suppose we would have a thread titled...'how do you undo mirror, tried a 4ft extenion on key'.

Mine nip up easy with no problem, aside from putting your post at the top of the pile, I can't help you much here.

Where the mirror attaches to the stalk. There is a collar that looks like it should be able to tighten but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

The collar doesn't do a thing. About all you might try is putting a very small tie-wrap in the gap where the mirror rotates - fasten it tightly.

 

Other than that - it's new mirror time..
