Dropped her

Was washing the bike and went to put it away with wet hands and dropped it. The metal part where the mirror bolts on to snapped and it all looks like Ike one piece that comes from where my finger is pointing. Can someone tell me what it's called so I can buy a new one?

Fairing stay. It's pretty common for them to break in a crash or tip over where the mirrors connect. I've broken way too many of them.

Ahh thank you! Are they relatively easy to put back on?

Re: Dropped her

The front headlight fairings and assembly all need to come off. But yeah pretty straight forward, just removing screws and a couple of electrical connectors. Reverse the process to put back on.
