One of my mirror stems is a little loose where it attaches to the frame.

The parts catalog shows a "gasket" but no screws between the stem and the frame.

Does anyone have a service manual, or taken this apart, to see if there's a way to tighten the stem up, or it is just a "push the parts together fit". Seems unlikely it's just a "push the parts together fit" since the stem is pretty heavy. Does anyone know?

Actually, it looks like the stem doesn't attach to the frame, but to the fairing. I guess that's why the mirror vibrates so much.

But does anyone know if the stem can be tightened-up? Looks like there's a plastic flap on the inside of the stem near where it attaches to the fairing; perhaps behind that plastic flap is a way to tighten the stem at the attachment point to the fairing(?).

Anyone know?

As discussed extensively already, the mirror stalk does not attach to the fairing. It is attached by two screws to the front of the headstock.

Suggest you take your bike to the dealer and have them inspect and re-torque the screws as necessary.

Without taking anything off the bike, look at the sides of the clocks and you see two bolts on either side of the clocks. Those four bolts clamp the under clock cover to the headlight chassis and are tightened onto the mirror stems. It's a silly hassle to strip the mirrors so you can take mine and oldndumb's word for it because we have both stripped the front down to see if the mirror situation can be improved.
