I bought a Cuppini wing mirror for my T5, but after I'd been told it would fit a squaretail, they said i also needed an additional cranked bracket, which I bought.

So i come to fit it, and it doesn't work..

Found this photo on another sellers site and realise I haven't got the hex spacers (or they may be stand off screws??)

should these have come with the mirror after i told them it was for a Mk1, if not, anyone know what I need to buy?

thanks in anticipation

those spacers look like coupler-nuts. Basicly just very tall nuts. You can find these at most hardware stores. Or order from McMastercarr. Or, you could use longer bolts and some type of tube spacer, that slips over the long bolts, inbetween the bracket and headset. Or stack up a bunch of washers haha

Thanks for the reply

For some reason Piaggio didn't put threaded female inside the headset to bolt in to, so the tube spacer sounds the best idea so i can cut it to the exact length needed to clamp it in place
