Ordered a mirror from motorworks. Thought they sold original BMW ones, but received one made by "BUMM" (from Germany).
My bike's off the road at the moment, so I can't check the mirror myself.
Has anyone here got experience with these motorworks mirrors? What's the vibration/movement like...
Yesterday whilst riding I had problems with both mirrors folding in at about 45-50 mph. Had I been travelling fast I could had understood this. The problem has been slowly getting worse ever since I have had the bike and I have done what the previous owner did and wrapped some PVC around under...
Does anyone know the thread size of the mirrors for the F650 GS 2002 model please? Plus I assume it's a right hand thread? :-)
The blind spot mirror things I got I just cannot remove so it's time for a new purchase of wide angle mirrors me things. Cheers Peeps.
Only that! This is the socket where the mirror stem fits onto the fitting on the handlebars. (Wow! That sentence is about as clear as mud!) The "fingers" on the socket have been amputated and the socket has given up to ghost. Stem and mirror are intact.
Help me out!

The offside mirror on my F650CS tends to slowly fold inwards ie towards the rider. Obviously it happens more at higher speeds (bearing in mind I am still getting used to this bike so "higher" = up to 60). This does not happen quickly ie over 10 mins or so, but is a nuisance and means taking a...
Hi All. I am trying to find a left hand wing mirror for my 2004 F650. Just had one nicked. Could anyone suggest a good resource to find one at the right price ? Second hand would do.
Thanks a mill
Just wondering if anyone has ever managed to do fix this...
I replaced the bottom pieces today.. (Joins mirror to Brake lever unit).. but in the process has to CUT one of them off... anyway.. long story short.. all the holding and cutting loosened the ball joint up in the mirror...
So I was coming in after a run out on my GS, yup putting it into the garage, was about to put it on the centre stand, plonk I was only on one of the pins and start losing control, best to drop it rather then struggle, pop the mirror on the right hand side has come off. :wall:

Took my (new to me) CS on the motorway for the first time this weekend, but the mirrors were useless at 70+mph.
The mirrors aren't original. They're some sort of chrome egg shaped things on shorter arms than the originals. They're in good condition and everything's done up tight. Does anyone...
I decided to test the strength of the mirror mounting on my CS this morning by knocking it against the back of a dustbin lorry. Turns out that the lorry was stronger, and the mounting bolt sheered off... :oops:
This is the part here:
I checked Motorworks and nearly fell off my...
Before I start experimenting.
Has anyone got any tips on stopping the mirror moving so easily at the joint behind the mirror disc.
It's recently started happening to one at speed - more tales from the heat ?
Grrrr - got back to bike last night for the commute home and some little ***** has smashed my right hand mirror :doh:
Question - can I replace just the mirror glass? or the whole round swivelling part? or do I have to replace the whole arm assembly too?
BMW manual seems to suggest the...
Having just snapped the right hand mirror off in the fitting (does BMW have to use Caramac instead of decent metal?). I'd be interested to know if you have any quick solutions for getting the remainder of the retaining nut thread out.
