  1. I got a new Quadlock mount for the phone, and a RAM mount for the top triple stem hole. That pairs up with the Sena SMH10-10 that I just got for the helmet, along with the special baseplate that will allow me to use my custom molded in-ear Westone-2's with the Sena. :) Looking forward to my October trip to the NC / VA / WV mountains when I can listen to music and take calls while on the bike, free of wires!!

    Trip to Denver

    Hi guys — I’m coming out to Denver (where I lived nearly 15 years ago) for business and then staying for a few extra days to see friends and maybe do some riding. I’ll be in town from the 25th through the 30th. Anyone in Denver willing to loan or rent me their bike for a couple of days or know of any reasonably priced motorcycle rental outfits? I’ve been a member of the forum for many years, been riding for over 20 years. I’m already familiar with Colorado Motorcycle Adventures.....Thanks!!

    VARIABLE9’s V4 VFR VICTORY

    BINGO -- that's the spot. It's actually more under the side panel, as you can see from the image, but obviously you have to remove the seat to get to it. Not sure if yours will be there or not, but that's where it belongs!! :)

    VARIABLE9’s V4 VFR VICTORY

    No, Variable. I understood your question, and was trying to tell you the specific location where the spanner handle is stored. I’ll have to take a pic of my 6th gen tomorrow and post it. There IS a specific location where the handle is stored, and it’s not in or with the rest of the tool kit.....

    There's a dedicated little spot that it goes in under the seat, I believe on the left side. Held in by something akin to very large o-ring rubber band typ thing. Check your bike. . . .might still be there!!

    Gsxr Mirrors On 6th Gen

    That's the ticket right there, Greg. Those will be sweet, and I may even be interested in upgrading my originals to this version. Looking forward to seeing the updates in the near future and the photos of the mock-ups. -Nate

    Like Marooncobra said above. The belleville washers are on the underside of the OEM GSXR mount. The stacking order from top to bottom is: top of riveted 'bolt' (machined end) mirror stalk mount 4 belleville washers 1 flat washer bottom of riveted 'bolt' (this is the actual riveted end) Photos of dis-assembly below.

    Bingo -- those are the washers. And yes, there are four of them in the GSXR OEM mount. I took some apart last night and will post some photos later.

    Nope. . . NOT lock washers. I'm pretty familiar with my hardware terminology. :) These 'spring washers' are things that I have never seen before. . . still trying to locate my 'new' (not dis-assembled) GSXR mirrors. Then I can tell you precisely where they were located in the assembly.

    Believe it or not, sadly, I DO have the original parts from the first set of GSXR mirrors I pulled apart!! I looked at them this morning. The spring washers are black; they look like a regular flat washer at first, but if you look closely, they are actually slightly conical -- if you set them on a flat surface, the center of the washer is about 1/64" higher than the edge. I believe that there were 4 in the OEM assembly, but I'm not sure where they were located relative to the OEM 'rivit' that attached the stalk to the base. When my left mirror broke, I managed to find another set or GSXR OEM mirrors on EBay that I have laying around somewhere. I'll try to find them, drill them apart, and take photos, or let you know where the spring washers were originally. Then you can do as you wish with the new batch of adapter mounts. . . .who knows. It might not even be feasible to incorporate them. But I think it would be great if you could.

    Take apart the OEM GSXR mirrors. You will find the spring washers that I am talking about. The detents aren't the spring washers. They just provide the engagement for the mount and the arm (obviously). I must not be explaining the assembly of the OEM mirrors very well. . . . Anyway, just my suggestions for some potential improvements . . .if no one else is having any problems with the adapters, then maybe it was just my issue.
