Put 2500 miles on this beast since February.

Riding along today, and thought that's weird I need to adjust my right side mirror. Reached up to adjust and the brake lever mirror everything moved. No immedate danger it can't move but so far with the cables and stuff in the way. Needless to say, having the brake lever move around isn't confidence inspiring while traveling at speed.

Pulled into a parking lot and whipped out the tool kit. Luckily the tool kit had the correct tool you know since there is only one tool included in the tool kit.

Guess, I shouldn't leave my helmet on the mirror when stopped, guessing that's the underlying cause of the issue. I had been meaning to adjust the lever, anyway just not today in a random grocery store parking lot.

Locktite to be applied before the next ride for insurance.

ozzy, you got some loose screws.. I would go around that bike and check most everything for tightness. the way I check is to first rotate ccw and see what degree of tite it really is. IF it is not tite, it will loosen up real easy real fast. Then go ahead and reset it back tite. IF it is tite and gives you plenty of resistance, either don't loosen it or if you do go ahead and retiten it back.. but just that your brake lever mount came loose on you, I wouldn't trust all other stuff as well.
