Sorry to hear you bought these piece of shit mirrors. Get a head start and pick up the JB Weld as I was told to do since the thin ass stems will never lock in as they should, however, there's always one in the bunch of us whom it works for. I JB Welded these crap ass mirrors and that was the only way to cement them. I even emailed that bootleg Kury company and they never responded - done with them too!

Good luck!

Larry

Don't know what your status is with this mod, but, here goes:
if you are using the adapter bolt that has a squared center nut, do this:
install that adapter tightly into the bottom of the stem.
Next, screw the metric end of the adapter into the top of the loose cap nut.
Now, screw in the adapter to the female threaded opening on the bike.

Adjust the mirror stem to where you need it and use that 'loose' nut to tighten.

You will want to use blue loctite on the SAE adapter end that threads into the stem.

The left mirror stem will sometimes come loose since it's a right-hand thread and there is a tendency for people and tree branches to bump into it...which loosens it.

good luck and I hope this helps.

((( hopefully not a stupid question))) I've noticed most are mentioning the Scythe 11 mirrors... I've seen them too, mine are the Scythe ones... I've seen them both... Could there be a difference? Plus these have the set screw, wouldn't that help the spinning? Or am I grasping at straws

ah yes, the set screw. Gather round ye fools who bought Kury crap--
take that screw...and tighten it to less than hand-tight--if you have blue loctite in the SAE end (aka upper end) of the adapter the set screw is useless. But, it will keep any little bits of moisture out of that area.

Don't rely on it. It will damage the adapter threads when you tighten it. I've purchased two sets of adapter bolts for my Kury's. I don't use that set screw for anything more than that--a hole filler.

<btw--I don't like Kury quality--but their support staff has treated me fairly--that's value you can't buy>

I was one of the ones that didn't have problems ..... until now. One... the stem on my right side one won't stay tight. 2..... the right side mirror itself keeps spinning loose.
possible causes: poor or stripped threads on the parts--over-zealous chroming of the threads.

I had that happen while installing my "old-guy" Magna's. If it's the right side you've got a thread or human issue; as in people keep bumping into that rt-side mirror. That side is the least likely side to become weakend since it should tighten each time something bumps or hits it.

Remove everything on that side: mirror from stem, stem, adapter and take a small flashlight and really give those threads a once-over.

If necessary, order another set of adapter bolts. In extreme cases: a new stem will be called for.

Now, let's re-install this sucker!

TOOLS needed: (your tool sizes may vary depending on adapter type)
5/16, 3/8 and 1/2" open-end wrenches
red Loctite (read the instructions. this is the really tough version of Loctite)
wire brush
goof-off (or similar oil removing product)

1. clean all threads with goof-off, inside and out with a small wire brush (or qu-tip for the inner threads) and carefully scrape off any chrome on the threads.
2. make sure the goof-off has evaporated thoroughly (that would be about 3 long gulps of lemonade for me)
3. put a drop or two of red Loctite on the SAE end of the adapter bolt and gently thread it into the stem. Once the adapter is threaded completely into the stem tighten the crap out of it with the 3/8" wrench.
4. Now, thread that locking nut onto the metric end, loosely, all the way up to the squared adapter bolt. (make sure the top end of this nut faces up)
5. gently thread the metric end of the adapter bolt into the OEM bracket hole. DO NOT USE LOCTITE HERE. If you ever want to replace that mirror, keep that hole clean. <chuckle> DO NOT TIGHTEN the metric end yet!
5. Put one drop of red loctite on the mirror bolt. (you said it was spinning, right? if yes, use the loctite--if no, do not use the loctite)
6. gently thread the mirror into the stem and tighten with the 5/16" wrench. Hold the stem while tightening.
7. Grab the stem and carefully turn and adjust it's position to suit your driving needs. If it screws all the way into the OEM bracket, that's fine. More than likely, it won't. You can tighten the stem at this point with the 1/2" wrench. Be prepard to retighten after step#8.
8. While holding the mirror in one hand and the stem in the other, adjust the mirror COUNTER CLOCKWISE or up and down until it reflects the area you want to see.
Do not spin it clockwise or you'll just be loosening it.
9. Once you've adjusted the stem and mirror to suit your needs take the 1/2" wrench and, if necessary,
re-tighten the nut downward (towards the OEM bracket) until it's tight.
10. the Loctite will need about 24 hours to cure--so, don't go out puddle jumping for a while.

If this doesn't fix your problem you're gonna need a complete new mirror set for the right side.

Sorry this is such a long post. Hope it has helped someone.
