Ninja 250 mirrors

My left mirror keeps moving and is being pushed back against the windshield every time I go more than 40-50mph. Is there a way to tighten the mirror so it stays in place better or do I gotta buy a new mirror. I didn't see any exposed screws to tighten so I'm not sure. Any ideas are appreciated. Btw, try to keep the "get a faster bike" comments to a minimum, I like my little 250 :P

Are you talking about the ball where the mirror pivots on the stalk? I don't think you can really do much about it. I'm not even sure if you can get to it without breaking the glass. maybe you can spray some type of heavy duty adhesive on the ball and let it penetrate.

There are a few pivot points, need to clarify which one is moving. Pics would be best if you can.

Not the ball joint, the stem bends at the point that attaches to the mounting piece

There is a peice of rubber that is stick on the end of the nut/bolt that attaches the mirror stalk to your front fairing. For one of the sides, you may have to take your windscreen off to access the allen head. Anyway, you can tighten it and if it's still loose, you can add a washer/shim to make it tighter.

I bought 08+ mirrors for my 650r and they are interchangeable. I take mine off and put them back on all the time for trackdays.
