Default Vision Mirror adjustment

Hi Guys,

I can't angle my right mirror on my 2011 Vision low enough to see upcoming traffic on that side. The left side is fine, and the right mirror is standing proud of the surround at around the same angles as the left.

Are there any adjustments inside the fairing that can perhaps be made ?....It's a bit dangerous as it is....(I already have the 2" convex mirrors in the corners, but they aren't great.)

Pete

Regards, Pete

Mirrors go side to side and not up and down if any.
You can pull them out and see if you can get a movement out of them.

Thanks Johnny....I know what you mean by predominantly side to side, but regardless, they do go slightly up and down (and in my case, not too far down.) I'm 6'7", so if you were say, 6', you'd be looking even further up in the sky .......

When you say "pull them out", how exactly do you go about that ?

I know this is an old post, but I took mine out and sprayed silicone on the ball in the back and I got more movement out of mine. Well maybe not more, but an easier adjustment out of mine and because of that they would go up and down farther and in and out farther. I think the travel was always there it was so hard to make it move. The silicone spray really helped.

It sounds to me as if the OP's right mirror tab wasn't in the mounting slot in the fairing. Removing it, and reinserting the tab into the slot may have resolved his issue.

thanks Gunslinger, but incorrect. I tried everything (as did my dealer). Already checked that, many moons ago. I've found a perfect solution with one of the 2.5" rotatable, offset stick on mirrors..

Default Handlebar mirrors

I was having trouble seeing what was behind me too. I bought a set of regular handlebar mirrors and solved the problem. I now use the wing mirrors for better side view. Not a cheap fix but it gave me piece of mind being able to see better.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Add some mirrors that work the way they are supposed to... so that the rider can see whats behind and beside.

Thanks Howard........ I tried them, but I didn't like the look. As I mentioned in my recent post, the 2.5" rotating stickons in the top inside corner, angled out wide, with the main mirrors angled directly behind work brilliantly for me.....

Pete, when you say "rotating" do you mean that after they are stuck on the main mirror, the new mirror surfact will rotate. If so, are they angled so as they rotate, the view changes?
Have never seen this type, got a source?

Sounds like the way to go for me rather than another set of new mirrors mounted.
Thanks
