How do i adjust 2016 GSX S1000F mirrors

They keep moving with the wind. There are 2 nuts at the base but can't get the sweet spot where the mirrors lock in 1 position.

I had the same problem. I tightened the top nut against the mirror as firm as I could get it, then loosened the bottom nut. Move mirrors to desired position, then cranked the bottom nut as tight as possible. It took a couple tries to get them right.

I had to use thread lock on the main mirror threads....constantly wanted to unscrew after a few days..it was the only way I could prevent it from eventually loosening off.

Just spit on the threads. It's a Suzuki, they'll soon rust in place

I've experienced the opposite issue when I got the bike.
Those nuts are so tight that on one side I decided that who ever tightened them had longer spanners than me and when a 18" shifter won't break it apart, it's time to stop.
The mirror glass gimbal joints are also so hard to move too.
I 've found twisting them counter clockwise first, then in or out to get the glass to look up or down is the only way or I feel the mirror glass will break with the twisting force.
I can bump into the mirror with a arm or elbow, and nothing moves.
