Thanks for the reply. I did all that. My conclusion is, the bike was dropped enough that someone needed to have the mirror out of the channel for it to be installed back on the bike. I don't think it could have come that far out of place without breaking. There is no way it could have moved that much and not stripped out the screw hole.
I called the dealer, he said you need to slam the mirror on a flat surface to remove the glass, then loosen the screws to get it back in the channel. He also said it was about a 50% chance it would break. I attempted to pop it off from the back with my finger and a piece of wood, but just didn't seem to want to come off. Could not risk having to buy a mirror too.
Looking at it and balancing the too risk factor of breaking the glass, I put it back on the way it was. Without shimming any of the lugs, this side lined up pretty good. Had I fixed the shroud, I don't think it would have been fixed today.
The other side which took the 1/4" of washers, has a small piece missing on the top of the mirror housing, so it looks like it took a good whack.
Lubed the lugs, got both mirrors on. A bit muffed that the tethers were missing. The previous owner had enough problems with the mirrors coming off he knows he installed them.......
So, can live with the mirror the way it is.
I do want to get the under mirror aux light mts, so will have to see what difference that is going to make. Don't expect to get that done any time soon.
