need help adjusting these

OK, I know I'm not usually this stupid but I can't figure out how to get the shortened configuration like shown in the pic below. I have totally taken these apart and I'm stumped. Currently I have the long rod in which places the mirrors too far outboard - I want the shortened version (bottom configuration in 2nd pic). Do I just remove the long rod and try to directly attach the mirror to the elbow? If so, I can't figure out which pieces to use. Or, am I missing the shorter rod - if there is one???

I am using the standard thread, 10mm fitting on my DRZ.

Thanks!

The folding mirror on the GS1200 or HP2 is a good match.
I believe in the folding mirror concept...and the 280mm stems.
Btw, I had these which come with the compatible 10mm stalk ...
and I ran out...

235-325mm adjustable stem and Folding

never mind...

I finally figured out the problem - it's amazing what a little coffee will do for the brain. The problem was that the mirror I was trying to adjust fitted really tight and I was afraid to push the mirror further on the stalk. I just greased it and voila - the mirror slides further down on the stalk like it's supposed to.

Now I've got to go outside and take some pics.

Jingjing, just call, next time.....

I enjoy seeing new motorcyle pictures and so do many of us.
Do post some..especially with those mirrors, there are maybe 15 pairs
in circulation. Let me know if you like them....or hate them.
I 'll work something out for you.

All the best,

Brady....do you want to try the bar mounts ? this way if you don't
over tighten the mirror clamp, it will turn a little and deflect some of the impact force ?

But it was Sunday...

No one answers their phone on Sunday! Besides, even if you did, I'd feel guilty taking you away from family and all. I of course was in the garage trying to figure out the mirrors. I tried them half-way in on this morning's commute. With the oblong shape, it looks like I can use them all the way in. So I'll let you know after tomorrow's ride.

I did find out that with the mirrors all the way out, mine vibrated a bit at 60-70 mph. But I am on a vibey thumper so I don't know if this would be the case for others. Besides, due to the shape of the mirror, it looks like I'll be using them with the mirrors as close to the elbow as possible. The shape really offers great coverage to the rear without having to resort to huge mirrors.

I'll let you know tomorrow how this experiment works out!

I don't think rubber isolator mounts work very well...they come from
here http://www.dual-star.com/

Technically, The vibration has no where to go in such a small rubber isolator.
It is better to fill the handlebars with lead shot.

All the best,
Henri

I am going to Italy for my annual visit and there are some new rachet base adjustable mirrors for 2009. Press down and turn the mirror out of the way mirrors. I buy what I would use myself...

Convex mirrors are excellent to my eyes....
Folding 280mm mirror can angled forward and tilted back for an excellent rear view. If you don't mind a 100mm lollipop, this is a great functional mirror with lots of positions......

"So the folding/extending mirrors seem neat, but how does the size of the reflective portion compare to the Aprilia/Moto Guzzi handlebar mirrors? And is the mirror head itself a simple friction fit, meaning no tools are needed to adjust it? (I know adjusting the stem angle and length requires a tool, rightly so, but I mean the mirror itself.) Does it move out of place and require readjustment? I ride on the highway often at 100 mph indicated.
"[/quote]

henri do these miorrors shown above come with bar mounts? i dont like the fact that the mirrors conect to the brake/clutch perch on the 09 690r. one bad fall and the whole master cyclinder will need to be replaced.

how much for a pair of the ones on the ktm above?

thanks

ps: anyone use on a ktm the mirror/handuard combo unit shown on the 09 hypermotard? it is a handguard, folding mirror and turn signal in one

KTM Ultimate folding mirrors 225-325 stem adjustable with perch mount are
$98. If want them with bar mounts add $10. Bar mounts which are not too tight will turn a little on the handlebars during an impact will save breaking the mirrors. On tall heavier bikes bar mounts are the way to go...

I bought a set of the Ducati folding mirrors from Henri. Ordered on a Monday and had them on Wednesday AM........"What took them so long...."..

I was going to use them on my new BMW X Challenge, but they looked so neat I put them on my Moto Guzzi instead. The MG had bar end mirrors which might look cool, but are a pain in the ars to use..........

Thanks Henri







Now I'll need to order another set for the XCH.........

Yes, I dislike bar end mirrors too. They are not as safe....because you have to take your eyes further off the road.

Maybe you would like to try the Monster Alloy mirrors on the Guzzi...
