Good to know! I thought the new '12 NTX addressed the aux light mount cracking issue by relocating the lights to new dedicated mounts, but it sounds like you have a '12 and they are still cracking??? The brackets they're mounted on look really beefy....I'm amazed they would crack.

Re. the mirrors, I already replaced my stock mirrors with the ones for the Sport and put the indicators back where they belong....in the fairing. The Sport mirrors are rock solid, so I don't anticipate any failures with them. The whole mirror/euro signal "kit" is around $100 from MPH in Houston.
