Mirror pods

Postby HughMcQ » Tue May 21, 2019 9:51 pm

There seems to be a bit of a design fault with these. When washing the bike (and presumably if left in the rain) water collects in the inside corner of the mirror pod so you have a nice puddle of water inside the pod. I have to resort to blowing out the water with an air compressor or pet dryer. BMW should have designed it with a drain hole.....

If you think a drain hole is a good idea, why don't you add one and let us know if it works.

That would mean drilling in to my lovely pristine mirror pod....I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem and whether they had come up with a less invasive solution.

A small hole at the bottom of the mirror pod would be hard to notice.
