Do you guys use the hex spacer that goes with the factory mirror? I tried to install my drag specialty mirrors last night, and I used those spacer along with my Kury adapter. It works fine, but the thread going into the mirror base are rather short when I use the factory spacer, but it provided me with the proper height for viewing...

Just wondering if you guys use it when you go aftermarket on the mirrors.

Also, seems like the mirror base ball joint isn't very strong, I wonder how that can be remedied. Any suggestions?

Save everything with your stock mirrors in case you have to use them again. Other than that you dont need it...

you shouldn't need anything from the stock mirror, but from what i remember most if not all have had to adjust the lever bracket to adjust the mirror up, so what you have to do is loosen the lever bracket and tilt levers down a little <until it's adjusted for you> and then retighten them, i would also suggest some loctite on the threads for the mirror so that you are not riding down the road and the mirror starts spinning on you.
