Hi

My mirrors keep moving while riding and I have to keep readjusting. Is it possible to tighten or stiffen them to stop this?
Thanks
Ian

Do you mean the ball joints at the mirror head?
If so then this was a problem years ago with cheap replacements for the X9 and IIRC the cure was to dribble a glue of some kind into the ball, work it about then set it in the correct position. The glue didn't actually fix the mirror permanently solid but acted like a shim to make the ball joint stiffer. Superglue may have been the choice, but back then it didn't stick plastics very well, but today's variety is better so maybe something more like a clear contact adhesive like Bostik or even PVA might do the trick.

I had terrible problems with my XEVO mirrors, in the end I got a couple of replacements from ebay, I have just checked and it looks like you can still get a new set (Black) for £60 the pair.
