disassembly of left rear mirror

Hello guys,



I am newcomer since I had bought Brutale 1090 RR 2010 one week ago.



My problem names front-left turn light that is integrated into the mirror (EU version of the mirror). It does not run properly. Problem is in the cable that leads to the LED turn light over the mirror tube or directly in the connection cable LED turn light plate. While I am twisting, pushing or pulling with cable in the outlet of mirror tube (by handlebar) it sometimes run properly.

Is there any way how to dismantle rearview mirror to in order to replace the cable or to fix the turn light connector or loose junction? Is it possible to pull out the glass by hand like on USA model? Or using any screw?



Thanks for help

Welcome aboard the MV Express.
The glass is held on with double sided tape. Good luck with separating it without breaking the glass.
Most replace the mirrors with aftermarket ones.

Understand. That means to force open. Any advise how to process? Use some special tool? Insert screwdriver under the edge of the glass and push down against the body of mirror?

Hope that i will be first and last electric problem of this baby.

Thanks

Ditch those things! Roll with bar ends and mount new signals on the headlight bracket! I did it and never looked back.

one suggestion I have been told is to freeze spray the glass in the area of the tape to aid in release. The tape strips are arranged in a 5cm square in the middle.

I was thinking a heat gun to warm the mirror and maybe help release it or let it stretch some. Pretty sure any prying on the glass will lead to a break. Good luck, but aftermarket mirrors DO provide far better visibility. There's a good chance working on it will lead to your solution

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Did you manage to remove the glass ?

My RH mirror pod is loose on the stem , i'm sure it just needs tightening up but understand you have de-bond the glass to get to the fixing .

Not a great design !
