Scrambler Mirrors – how to mount on your levers

Here you’ll be shown how to mount the Purpose Built Moto scrambler mirrors on your lever pivot bolts, either under or above your handlebars. 

What you’ll need:

  • Purpose Built Moto Scrambler Mirrors + provided hardware
  • 8mm + 10mm spanners
  • Thread Locker (med strength)
  • 6mm drill + battery drill (motorcycle dependant)

This process is dead simple, and achievable on nearly any motorcycle
Lets get started.

1. Check your levers and disassemble the mirror assembly
Firstly check your mirror pivot bolts, they should be M6. Remove the lever pivot bolts and replace with the M6 bolt provided in your mirror kit. Remove the mirror body off the mirror arm. 

Note: some motorcycles will have an 8mm pivot spacer, or enlarged section of the factory bolt. In this case the spacer will need to be drilled out to 6mm to have the new Scrambler mirror bolt pass through it. 

2. Install the new M6 mirror mount bolt.

Install the new bolt and tighten on the lever thread. Place some thread glue on the thread and spin on your M6 locknut provided in the kit. Depending on your lever type you can use 1, or 2 lock nuts. That’s up to you.

3. Fit the Mirror Arm. 

With the lock nut in place, wind the mirror arm into place. Use the lock nut to lock the mirror arm into position with your 10mm spanner. 

4. Fit mirror body

Using some thread flue, tighten the M6 bolt through the mirror body into the mirror arm. Here you can eyeball about where your mirror needs to sit. Final adjustment can be done on the next step.

5. Mirror adjustment

Once you’ve installed mirrors on both sides sit on the bike and check the adjustment. Here you can use the lever pivot lock nut, the M6 bolt between the mirror body and mirror arm or the pivot adjuster on the mirror itself. Once set in place, lock off and tighten all your fasteners.

6. Clearance check

With your bike on the ground, carefully check mirror clearance with your tank from full lock left, to full lock right. This is especially important with mounting your Scrambler Mirrors under the handlebars. If there is a clearance problem, you can adjust your mirrors again, flip them to on top of the handlebars, or grab our Bar end mounting kit and install that for a bar end mount option.
