I'm about to put on Muth Mirrors and I have Hand Wings on. I'm sure someone has this setup. I was just wondering if you need to put on thread lock with the mirrors. My Hand wings always needed to be tightened after a days ride.:cool:

I would highly recommend keeping lock-tite as far from the plastic on any bike as you can.

Not necessary to use thread lock on those nuts. Just tighten them good you should have no issue.

I know what you mean, it seemed like I had to keep tightening the long barreled nut to the point I was afraid I would strip it out!
What I ended up doing was going to the hardware store and buying 2 star lock washers, (sorry dont know the exact size?)
Anyway I just took the barrel nut into the hardware store with me to size them.
Put one at the top of the first washer and the other on the other side of the washer, now when I move the wings the barrel nut stay's put. :thumbup:

Muth Mirrors

I had the Tulsa Hand wings installed before I installed the Muth Mirrors.
The Screws were to short to start to thread. Went to the Hardware store and Bought new screws a 1/4 in longer and no problems.

Baker mirror wings work fine. No threadlock needed.
