How do you tighten the bar end weights

I have stock bars (until I get some Tharbars) and put on some eBay bar end mirrors mounted on the outside of the bar end weights. I don't want to take out the bar end weights, but at speeds of 80mph+ the bar end weight rotates due to the wind. Is there any way to tighten the weight down to prevent this?

I had a similar problem with mine. One thing you can do is get some black rvt silicone and apply it to the end of the inner bar weight after taking it out. Put it back in to cure for 24 hours and that should hold. At least it did for me. Rather frustrating though lol.

Good buy on the Tharbars though. You'll love em!
