    I just installed some Arlen Ness mirrors. And while they look very nice, the ball joint is somewhat loose and the mirrors move under normal bike vibration. Anyone have any tricks for making the ball and socket joint "stickier"?

    I was considering dribbling a bit of thin superglue in the socket and move the mirror as the glue dries to add a thin coat of glue to the ball/socket. Anyone have a better idea??

    Is there any screws on either side of the ball socket?

    Thanks Steve! That turns out to be the trick. I didn't realize it was a nut.

    From one nut to another nut! :bigsmiley20:

    Sometimes you feel like a nut.....sometimes you don't!
