I drilled and tapped a hole through the vent opening on my mirrors and put a screw in them. They will never fall off again unless in a wreck and then they will break off but if they get hit hard enough to come off, they would have been damaged in the fall anyways so I don't worry about that.
As for the preload adjuster, they periodically need service where you take off the hose on the adjuster, pop the internal plunger back down with a thin screw driver or coat hanger wire and then refill it with jack oil. No one knows where the oil goes but it is not uncommon to have it not do anything because of the oil missing from it. You can tell by turning it in from the lowest setting and if it has to go in a long way before you start getting resistance, it is empty so refill it. I think Kirk has a video with that in it but not sure if it is dedicated or in a tips and tricks video from him. I will look for it and add it if I can find it.
EDIT at 14:07 is where the preload refill and check starts.
The preload adjuster was stuck and the plastic knob was just turning on the stuck screw.
Got it loose, managed to loose and then find the spring and ball. Proceeded to push the plunger in and refilled.
The adjuster then worked. I think my trip back will be easier and less scraping. The bike was barely two inches off the ground.
The high beam had a Cyclops LED. Much too blue. Itís been raining so everything turned to a blueish haze.
Installed a H11 (with some modding) bulb with yellow light. Much better.
Managed to remember how to adjust the low beam height.
The mirrors are for now secured with zip ties.
Time to do some GSing tomorrow on my LT.
Also had a flat tire. One of the speed bumps had a rebar coming out and punctured the tire. The damage was pretty large on the outside, but only a smallish hole in the inside.
Before I noticed I ran about 5 miles with no air.
The tire was over 80C. Very hot. But no apparent damage. Not like I had or have a choice to buy another tire. Plugged the tire with the ďwornĒ plugs.
Got to a car tire shop and they patched it from the inside.
Really hope it makes it back.
All good it seems.
