I’m obviously being very stupid here but I’ve just purchased pair of alternative mirrors for my 2017 650XT off Amazon which have ‘Standard RH M10 threads’ and which according to the literature fit Suzuki motorbikes.
However, the last picture posted here has completely confused me.....
It appears to show the black mirror arm with the plastic cover, a sliding nut, a tapered brass fitting on the end of the arm (held in place with a rivet), all of which screws into a ‘fitting’ which I assume has a tapered core to accept the arm. As you tighten this, the tapers lock together in whatever position is required.
BUT, the thread on the end of this fitting looks VERY small, certainly not M10 (if you can agree with the scale): more like M6!!
Has anyone with a 2017 650 recently replaced their mirrors and can confirm this?
I don’t want to disassemble everything and risk scratching the finish if they’re not going to fit.
