I just got my bike back from the movers: was stationed in Hawaii and moved back to AZ. They had to take the stock mirrors off to crate...I got the left one on no problem (righty tighty) but the right side by the throttle wouldn't go in. After numerous attempts and hours online thinking it was stripped out my wife went out and did it as a counter thread. If you need to take your mirrors off, the right side is counter threaded (my wife hasn't let it go all night). Remarks complete.
