I believe that is a plastic plug - cosmetic only. Pry it off to expose the bolt.

Yep, that's just a plastic cap. Pop it off.

Did you know that mirrors is the widest part of your motorcicle? They are right at the height of side view mirrors of most cars. Extenders will make them even wider which will affect your filtering capability (provided you live in a country with narrow lanes and allowed to filter).

Or you can just fold them in when you filter or split like I do.
