2012 KLR 650 Mirror adjustment

Hi All

I am doing something majorly wrong. I am having great trouble adjusting the wing mirrors on my 2012 KLR. I can not seem to be able to set the mirrors as I either unturn the locking nut or the thread that goes in to the locking nut. And my mirrors are now just swinging around.

Any advice would be great.

There has to be some thread above the post that the mirror screws into then the jam nut is run on those threads against the post.

I had the same problem. You have to work with that jam nut. It makes no sense to build em that way

It does not make any sense at all, but will keep trying.

Cheers
