I have an 87 K100 RS with a Pichler (I believe PK2) fairing.
The mirrors point east and west and spin upon any riding.
Anyone have any experience in replacing said mirrors Question

G'Day Smith do you mean the mirrors spin in their housing or the ball socket the mount with wont keep them still? The latter is maybe a shim job but the first one would be difficult if they are convex or multi dimensional. I'm not fond of those mirrors that state the objects are close than they appear. mostly because they're too close to begin with. A pic would be nice. Keith

The Clever are adept at extricating themselves from situations that the wise would have avoided from the outset - QUOTE from david Hillel in Out of the Earth.

The mirrors were useless - I couldn't see directly behind me (but somewhere off to the left and right)
Then, Once positioned as best as I could, they would move while riding.
Fix,
I went with aftermarket mirrors for the Kawasaki sports bikes - they look very similar.
