I have a 2006 X2 and lost the know for my tower mirror. I don't want to spend a lot of money for a knob and I'm assuming that's the case if I get one from a dealer. Anyone have any better suggestions??

Someone that upgaded here should have an old one, I had 4 but have no idea what happened to then. I'll check the garage.

Stu, I could sure use a spare if you find those units in the garage... wife already dropped ours in the water this year (in the marina, so I was able to retrieve it).

Keep an eye on the mirror pins too. Finally got the bushiings glued in so they wouldn't fall out and darn near lost one of the pins this weekend.
In a pinch a bolt from the hdwr store would work.

After losing my mirror knob bolt on my first outing, I searched high and low to find them.

I am not sure of the correct size yet, but I am onto something here. Various manufacturers have these available.

I ordered one last year from Midwest mastercraft. It was $37.95.

I lost one of those bushings. It was about $5.00 for the $0.15 part at the dealer. I knew they were loose but my wife remove the mirror while over water. Made it known that top of ramp is the place to be doing that stuff. Glued in with silicon before the next trip out.

Lowes or Home Depot should have a similar thumb screw.

I lost my mirror thumb screw and bushing this weekend. Am I stuck with a dealer purchse, or has someone found a source for these?

I have an 06 X-9 and am also in need of the bushings for my tower mirror. I actually lost mine while sitting in the driveway and folding down my tower to put the boat in the garage after a day at the lake. Of course it was dark outside and the bushings fell out and I never noticed until the next morning when I put the tower back up to go out and now it is a problem getting the mirror not to rattle. Any help to locate these bushings other than at the dealer would be greatly appreciated. I am in the Nashville area if that helps at all.......

I can make some more of the bushings. I made some for mine when the first outing I lost them both in the lake. I can get some made this week. Just let me know who needs them. I'm also planning on making some of the screws because they're so stupidly expensive for a spare. I'll let you know when I get those done. Probably be Thursday.

If it's the thumb screw for the quick disconnect; a wakeboard binding thumb screw is the same size.

Corey that is awesome. I had to buy a knob and bushings from the dealer. I bought some extra, but you can never have too many. I would buy a know from u out too. I know I am going to drop it again some day.
