While installing the Hella FF50's

It seems to vibrate quite a bit while the engine is running - stopped or while riding. I was assuming that the mirror head might have gotten loose. Last night I popped off the mirror and noticed that the retainer clips in the mirrors seem to not be holding on tight to the 3 posts. This is causing a shake in the entire mirror body and is annoying while riding. For now, I put a piece of foam between the mirror and the mounting to keep the mirror from shaking.
Is there a way to tighten those clips?
Look closely at the FRONT clip area, very likely that the plastic is broken on the front edge. That is a weak point in the plastic, and many of us have repaired that by drilling small holes on either side of the split, "lacing" it back up with strong thread or monofiliment then coating it with a thin layer of epoxy.
