    Bar end mirror install

    Greetings
    I have a 1975 R75/6, am installing bar end mirrors. The right side grip is made by BMW and is thick with a nearly squared end. I cut a hole in it and added the bar end mirror BUT it acts like a throttle lock. I've moved it out some and every time I tighten it enough it won't slip it still presses to the grip. Would love some suggestions

    You may have to trim some of the rubber off of the end of the grip.

    That is one of the things I liked about the bar end mirror install. It would allow me to take my hand off the throttle without the instant de-celeration. Of course, I could always slam the throttle closed when necessary.

    I never said I didn't like the fact the throttle stays open. TY for the input
