  • Rattling in mirror

    Why is there a rattling in my right mirror? Sounds like a handful of rocks in the mirror vibrating real good at 45mph. 06 roadstar

    Most likely its the the glass vibrating in the mirror shell. Are they Oem Mirrors? Mine were doing that as well. I ditched them for some aftermarket ones.

      You can pump a little bit of silicone caulk inside and wipe the excess off the outside.

        Two choices...Purchase new mirrors or drill and fill. I drilled about 1/4" hole near the stem and injected liquid nails. Silicone would work well. I will try that on my next rattler.

          Third choice would be ear plugs.

        There is a weight glued in there to quell the vibration. They get loose over time and rattle.

        Do the silicone injection mentioned.

          I knew there was something in there but I didn't know it was a vibration damper. I wonder if anyone here has installed aftermarket mirrors and experienced increased vibration in the mirrors. Thanks for the information.

        So if there's a wait in there floating around you should try to secure it somehow I guess preferably outboard? with a silicone injection I guess there's no sense filling the entire mirrors?

          How much weight should you inject? Fill it up, how else can you be sure you fixed the rattle.

        I agree, a good silicone injection! Click image for larger version  Name:	images.jpg Views:	1 Size:	7.3 KB ID:	123133
