The mirrors arrived today, and my first mistake was to take the complete mirror off of the bike.
The foot on the new mirror is a different angle, so use the old foot.
A single bolt, large hex head, needs removing, but this has been lock-tighted on so is a bit stiff.
Using the new bolt, and discarding the new foot, the mirrors fit perfectly.
Just waiting for the lock-tight to go off before trying them out.

Puzzled why you bought mirrors .

I bought these spacers from fleabay. Simple and easy to fit and do the job.

The mirrors were only £18.
My preference being, they are 1 piece so less chance of a part to come undone, or additional vibration.
I guess it's old habits as my work life has taught me to keep the number of connections to a minimum to reduce potential problems.

Ha thank you for that link, had them come over, installed and happy muddy piggy now. Never thought such a little distance makes for a good difference. Had to shorten the bolts a bit though. Saw that post of the guy making an equivalent out of plexiglass, neat idea there. But mine are black aluminium and on par with my ego  :mfrlol:

Thanks for the information, just to let the next new owner know I upgraded to a pair of CB1300 mirrors purchased from ebay, quick fitting 2 bolts on each and now I can see behind me.
Thanks
Mark

Hi Guys,
Just adding to this forum cause I have loose mirror swivel on my CBF-F Mk2. I've found the solution is to remove the upper washers and fit a mini thrust bearing to the upper hex-bolt side. This takes away the friction that causes the bolt to turn when folding the mirrors in and out. Thrust Bearing size: 8mm x 16mm x 5mm.
(Inner diameter, outer diameter, thickness)
This is a fix for any swivel problem on most bikes. Also cheap, about €3 - €4...
