Nevermind. I didn't realize that the mount had an orientation.
once I turned the mount around everything made sense.

Wow1 #2 goes so much faster than #1!

They are on, but I am too tired to try them out. It is 2:30 in the afternoon as I type this and I have been up since 5PM yesterday...
But it's my weekend!
So they will get tested tomorrow for sure. It's supposed to be warm (80s/30s) and sunny!

the (well/recessed hole part) goes on the bottom, with the (well-recessed hole) part facing up..this just like your oem mirror stem base..it hides the bolt head flush or slightly recessed...It was more trouble than it was worth to me to try to save the bolts...easier to snap the fragile head off and just buy 2 new ones..Ace Hardware..97cents apiece
......glad to hear you had better luck than me getting them free...like the bar end screws..I have heard different people say it was easy to break loose and some say near impossible..may depend on the dose of loctite the worker on the production line decided to give your bolt or screw at that particular time.

My only complaint so far is vibration revving up thru gears and at interstate speeds..but not enough that you still cant see whats coming up behind you...I will take that bit of vibration for the awesome line of sight I have behind me now anyday

I DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING I READ AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT I SEE

I could not have gotten those screws loose without your prior warning.
Heat, patience and grit-tipped tool in a 1/2" breaker bar made it possible.

Thanks again!

I was speaking of the OEM mount that goes against the fairing.
I thought it did not matter which way it went, but it is definitely made to only go one way (if you want your mirrors positioned properly, anyway!).

ahhhh..yes...that would throw the mirror way off kilter by turning THAT mount the wrong way...I only took one mirror off at a time so I was able to glance over at the other one to be sure of the mount orientation just prior to bolting everything back on

So I had my first test ride with them yesterday. They are GREAT! Definitely a keeper.

Yes, the mirrors vibrate more, but it is mostly at slower speeds. On my way out of my neighborhood I was wondering if I would keep them, but on the interstate they are wonderful! NO blind spot behind me!

I must be blind. I've looked everywhere, and I can't see a link to the exact seller posted anywhere. Can you help a blind man see?
