Anyone in Charlotte-metro ??

Hey y'all, just picked up my new '05 919 yesterday (spent an hour filling out paperwork, got up to take my bike home and it's pouring down rain.... ) Took it to work today, it came with Yoshimura pipes on it from the dealer. I'm glad I found this place, I'll probably have some questions a little later (fender eliminator, FI questions, etc. ) First one is: I've got the stock mirrors (for now), I cannot get the adjustment nut loose at all. Is it righty tighty lefty loosy or am I turning it the wrong way? Anyone else have this problem?

Welcome, Nice choice of bikes. If I am thinking right, yes it should be standard right hand threads. Post any questions ya got in the Naked section and the experts will chime in.

Welcome aboard! justintyme is right about the threads on the mirrors, if I recall correctly. I had to reset mine after a little lowside, but that's the only time I had to mess with them, so I could be wrong.

OEM mirrors

Careful out there boys and girls, Honda threw a curve at you with the stock mirrors.

The threads are left handed meaning the opposite is true.
Lefty tighty righty loosy. The 1" adapter that threads into the clutch and break assemblies are normal right hand threads.

Welcome aboard...

Since I don't have my bike with me at work maybe Mike can answer this since he doesn't have anything better to do. I know that standard (read American) bolts, nuts, etc. that are left handed threads usually have a groove cut around the circumference of the said device. Does the Honda have this?
