Loosen the top nut by turning it clockwise as you look down on it and swivel to stalk where you want it. Then tighten the nut in the other direction. You may need to hold the bottom part in place for the final tightening as it can loosen if you turn the top nut too hard.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Duh!, Thanks very much for that, just bought a new 650, and was trying to adjust the mirrors and couldn't work out why it wouldn't loosen, the mirror came off the bar mount ok, as that was RH thread, but no idea that the adjuster was LH, thought I'd leave it in case I stripped it. Thanks again very much.

The information in the thread above about the threads for the right piece in the first picture is incorrect. This is the piece that screws into your mirror stalks mounted on your handlebars.

The thread is M10 x 1.125. Not M10 x 1.5 It is a normal right hand thread.

M10 x 1.5 is very common and can be found in most hardware stores. M10 x 1.25 is less common, but still available. Use of M10 x 1.5 bolts will damage the female threads in mirror stalks.

I don't know of any mirrors that use an M10 x 1.5 thread so if your replacing your mirrors the point may be moot.

M10 X 1.125 ? I think you mean M10 X 1.25 correct?

It's still there. Are you possibly at a work computer? Sometimes IT sets them up to deny access.
