Blown Out Specular Pass in Renderman

So I’ve been working on a scene and all my lights are functioning properly with all my objects, aside from the reflective part of my mirror texture and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.

I’ve turned light linking off on the mirror part of the texture to all my lights and it still doesn’t seem to help.

I’m using a PxrDisney legacy material and even with the specular as low as 0.1 it still produces a blown out specular pass.

Will post here if I end up figuring out what’s causing this!
