    OK, just received my mirrors from Pashnit. Of course I went to put them on like the little kid in a candy store. I can not loosen the allen bolt to move and adjust the pivot arm at the base. I can move the mirror on the ball just fine but unless I want to look at myself... I need to swing them away a bit. I put enough pressure on each of these to almost break my tool. I assume these were put together with wet paint at the factory. I would not dare mount and try to break the bolt as it would pop my nose fairing. I just put a towel in my bench vice and I'm saying my multi allen wrench tool was about to break. I pulled the little rubber at the top thinking maybe.... but nope... that is just the other end or bottom of the allen bolt. What is the possibility these are reverse threads? Need to know if anyone with these had this issue. No answer at Pashnit or I would ask Tim.

    I kept the stock mirrors but added one inch Delrin spacers that help immensely. They came with longer bolts.

    yep K2 gsxr 1000 mirrors are great especially with the spacer like mentioned above . My local dealer sold me OEM K2 for $62 bucks each . not cheap , but better than the msrp by a good bit .

    I got gsxr1k mirrors from Pashnit years back.
    They were perfect, not cheap junk.
    Maybe you just got a bad set.
    He sells quality parts.

    If you break your $3 Allen wrench set who cares. Great excuse to go buy a nice t handle set.

    Well, I hope that PASHNIT will respond and maybe get another one on the way. However, I would as I had thought this was a factory part. I don't think you would want one that has an issue? I certainly will give them time to respond to my email and if they replace it I'll sell them to you.

    Go till it breaks there is nothing else that can be done. It breaks something or breaks loose. Pashnit should take care you either way.

    I took Mathewrussll52 advice and went Full Tilt Boogie on them. I soaked in PB Blaster over night. I just put the one in the vice wrapped in towel. I put my body weight against the pivot arm and she gave. Had to touch up just a little place with black but good to go. My God that was a pain. I have severe Anxiety issues and would prefer things to go smooth but it's just wasn't to be. However, it's over and they look great on BLUESA. Very nice upgrade.

    They look nice but as short as they are, all I'd see would be my elbows.

    I've looked at the Turbo setup for this down in Texas and it's about $7000. I'd love it but that is a bit steep. The TERMI is putting down 751HP and 682TQ at 6700 elevation. Very good for Colorado.
