My left mirror stem is loose and no matter what I do i cant seem to get it tightened in the right spot. When it does tighten it's about 45 degrees off from where its supposed to be. Is there a trick to the tightening? Thanks!

Well, are you holding the mirror stem where you want it when you tighten the nut?

Slacken off the locknut first, rotate the mirror to where you want it and hold it in that place (as Tickster says, above), then tighten the locknut and you should be good.

I had to use red locktite on my. Every time I adjusted the mirror it would swing free. And this is after I had the BMW service technician tighten it. Grrr

I wonder why BMW (and others) don't just use a silicon washer between the mirror stem and handlebar, to dampen some of the vibration? I'm probably missing something here, but it makes sense on the surface. My 310 R isn't terrible for a single cylinder, regarding mirror vibration, but it's definitely blurry at most RPM's, to some degree.
