Mirror Blanking Nuts

Mirror blanking nuts are accessories used to cover the holes left when motorcycle mirrors are removed. They provide a clean, finished look and protect the threads in the mounting holes from dirt, moisture, and corrosion. These are often used in situations where mirrors are removed for racing, track days, or aesthetic purposes.

Here are some steps and tips for selecting and installing mirror blanking nuts:

Selecting Mirror Blanking Nuts

  1. Check the Thread Size and Pitch: Motorcycles typically use specific thread sizes and pitches for mirror mounts. Common sizes include M10x1.25, M10x1.5, M8x1.25, etc. Verify your bike's requirements in the service manual or by checking existing mirror threads.

  2. Material: Choose a durable material such as stainless steel, aluminum, or plastic. Aluminum and stainless steel are preferred for their strength and corrosion resistance.

  3. Finish and Design: Consider the aesthetic finish (e.g., anodized, powder-coated, plain metal) to match your bike’s style. Some blanking nuts come with a low-profile or flush design for a sleek look.

  4. Brand and Compatibility: Some brands offer model-specific blanking nuts. Check if there are recommendations or specific parts for your motorcycle model.

Installing Mirror Blanking Nuts

  1. Remove Mirrors: Unscrew and remove the existing mirrors. This might require a wrench or a specific tool depending on your bike's setup.

  2. Clean the Threads: Ensure the mounting holes are clean and free of debris. Use a thread cleaner or compressed air if necessary.

  3. Install the Blanking Nuts: Screw the blanking nuts into the mirror mounts by hand to start the threads properly. Tighten them using a wrench or the appropriate tool, being careful not to over-tighten and strip the threads.

  4. Check for Secure Fit: Ensure the nuts are securely fitted and flush with the mounting surface. Double-check for any gaps or loose fittings.

  5. Regular Inspection: Periodically inspect the blanking nuts to ensure they remain tight and secure, especially after long rides or track sessions.

Additional Considerations

  • Functionality: Removing mirrors can impact your rear visibility, which is crucial for safety. Ensure you have alternative means to check behind you, like bar-end mirrors if required by local laws or for personal safety.

Using mirror blanking nuts is a straightforward process that can enhance the look of your motorcycle while protecting it from potential damage. Choose the right type for your bike and follow installation steps carefully to ensure a secure and aesthetic fit.
