How do I replace a stripped lock nut (for the mirror)? I tried to tighten my mirror and cranked it in the wrong direction and the lock nut that's attached to the frame is stripped. I can't find it on any forums or the Kawasaki OEM parts site.

The mirror assembly is a two piece setup.

An adapter threads into the mirror and then the mirror stem threads into that.

Try this tighten bottom portion down first and top portion is left handed thread, use two wrenches tightening top wrench left and bottom wrench right; probably not stripped.

Quick fix (temporary) longer bolt and external nut . Since you are ordering parts get some extenders, makes life easier
