Anyone know how to take apart this mirror? Its for a superbike (older model). I've got the orange turn signal glass off (one screw), but I need to get the reflector out, and I'm not sure if its held in w/ screws or if the mirror itself is held in with screws. Anyone ever take one of these apart?

From taking apart other mirrors I know that you get to the guts by pulling the mirror glass off, which in most cases is held on by plastic clips.

Well, I know the answer now. You don't take these mirrors apart - without sacrificing the glass. The screws to remove the reflector and bulb assembly are under the mirror which is glued in place with heavy black rubber/silicon.

20/20 now..... But maybe using a heat gun--- hot enough to soften the silicone but cool enough not to damage the glass/reflective backing or plastic housing?

Be patience --------- go easy and it may work now that you know what is holding it on. Silicone will soften with heat. How much???

Good luck on the rest of it.....

they are nice mirrors. The part that attaches to the windscreen is metal and they are well made.
