So I ordered a new OEM bracket for my clutch side mirror and bracket, but I can get this piece apart. Does it even come off?? If so, how do? Sorry if I seem inept...it's been a long week..

I couldn't find anything on the service manual, but did you check if that side is reverse thread? (go to the tightening direction to loosen)

Yea, I can't even get it to turn in either direction. It's super torqued in there. It is definitely threaded in there. I can seem to get a good grip on it with tools without hurting the finish.

Can you put back on the old bracket and use that as leverage to break it loose? If not, I would wait a little longer until someone who has swapped out their handle bar so they can chime in.

yea, thats how I was originally getting it to turn. I added the old handlebar back into the bracket for leverage. Maybe this is a sign to convert to bar end mirrors. haha

Yep I thought so too. But none of my ratchet sizes fit over the end of the "bolt like object"

You want to take the mirror base off the clutch perch? There is a lock nut, use a 17mm open end wrench to loosen it, the mount will come right off then.

The clutch side mirror mount has normal threads, on the brake side the threads are reversed, as marked by the little grove in the lock nut, clockwise loosens that side.

Oh, I thought you were referring to the silver part in the other picture. Yea I will try to use a wrench again. Only concern is ripping the black finish off the metal.

This sounds like a correct answer. I do have a 17mm open wrench, I will give this a go. Thanks!

You were right. I was being dumb. Loosen up the middle bolt thing with 17mm wrench, then the main piece easily unscrews by hand.
