Hey everyone, I am wondering if you can steer me in the direction of a spare part. I am looking to fix this left hand mirror mount that was broken before I bought it. I can still mount a mirror on the left, but it's tenuous at best.

Questions:
is a beginner DYI mechanic able to replace this part?
Where can I find this part?
Or is this not something I should worry about?

Scooterwest sells them. Yes you can figure it out. Just loosen the brake cable, remove a few pieces, unbolt the whole bracket and then start reassembly.

They don't list a part that fits my 2007 LX 150 but I emailed them. We'll see.

I believe that part is called the Perch. I also think they come with the brake lever as an assembly.

I bought one for around 30 bucks.

Found it. Part ordered. Super nervous about having to disconnect the brake cable on the back wheel, etc, but hopefully I can figure it out.

Honestly, if it wasn't for MV, I would not have even dared to tackle this myself. Thank you all in advance.

I think you'll only need to back the rear cable off (loosen it) but I don't think you need to take it all the way off. Even so, it's no big deal.

Hardest part for me is getting up off the floor!

The last half of this Scooterwest video shows how to do it.

Hahahaha. You crack me up.

Well, I also watched the video. Looks pretty straightforward other than the handlebar removal with the compressed air. I either have to find a neighbor who has a compressor or... any other suggestions?

You aren't really talking about removing the handlebar....just the rubber grip. Compressed air is one way but maybe you can just pull it off after loosening the end of it. Or buy a replacement grip that's not expensive and cut the original off.

I think I'll replace both grips and replace them with fresh ones. Thank you for your reply!!
