    Ok i brought the tear drop mirrors from triumph a few years back and from the beginning when doing high speed one of them would move and now after new pipes and ramair and tune both do it on hard acceleration. Its just the mirror not the stem.
    Anyone have the same?
    Any recommendations on what mirrors would be better?
    Like the style but fustrating when riding.

    Vmax Mirrors from Fast Eddy's work well, they screw onto the existing stem. or a dab of clear epoxy on the mirrors where the stem enters should stop it.

    BF642902-42C7-4F35-8AEB-95AEE407ACED.jpeg Road runner rocket I had a pair of triumph tear drop mirrors on my bike and had the same problem. A quick temporary solution it to adjust the mirror where you want it then put some glue on the ball at the end of the stem where it goes into the mirror. I replaced my mirrors with a set of Arlen ness tear drops. They have two screws where you can tighten the mirror to the stem and it will not move.

    Adjust then to exactly where you want then put a spot of super glue on the pivot point.

    Adjust them where you want them and loctite the ball and socket.
