I suggest the 243mm stock KTM Folding mirror with Bar mounts
if you do alot of dirt roads. Filling the handlebars with lead shot will absorb alot of the vibration.

Thank you....

I've alread got the dirt roads/"legal" part covered. What I was looking for was the absolute best view behind me. Do you lthink the longer mirrors would do that better to get around my shoulder or would I run into more vibration issues on the longer mirrors?

I ride an MZ 660 single ( with 50000K miles so far ) and I prefer the 280mm longer folding mirrors. Vibration isn't a problem for me....
I leave the elbow greased and a light snug and fold it on the move....
The convex mirrors are excellent. I like good mirrors and these are very good IMO. I don't think it's a big difference between 243 or 280mm.

We know that the mirrors don't add any vibration, they merely display it.

If somebody needs the mirror stalk and somebody else needs the folding mount...from crashing.
I'll match you guys up and everybody gets what they need : $15 each piece.

What do you think about these Henry?

It looks like there some sort of mirror cushion you can screw the mirrors into to take out vibration?

I'm thinking of getting your 280mm mirrors so I can see around my shoulders better than with the 243's. I was just concerned with the longer stalks it would magnify the vibration my bars already have. Do you see any problem in using that whitehorse dampener in conjunction with your mirrors?

Thanks

Rick

PS just noticed that 1st link didn't go straight to the "mirror vibration isolator" under KLR products ... maybe that 2nd one will.

I've been thinking about something like this, Linky, placed on the stalk (really could work with any mirror) to reduce vibration.

Looking at your stable of KTM pure singles (motors without balancer shafts)
I undertstand the vibration issue. I have no experience with the rubber isolators mounts. Not sure if the concept really works because the
rubber has to be stiff enough to support the mirrors at high speeds and yet soft enough to actually adsorb vibration. The factory didn't offer it, enough said....? The factory mounts the handlebars with rubber on the top triple instead.

You could try liquid bar snake (silicone caulk) or lead shot in the handlbars which does work...

Those Sims Vibration Lab things I linked to wouldn't be a mount, but would go over the actual mirror stalk to help absorb engine or road vibration as it travels toward the mirror. I've worked with them before on vibration issues of a baseball bat (not on their site). They actually work pretty well.

I don't have any issues with (visibility due to) vibration on the SXC or V-strom where I have your folding mirrors. In fact, the V-strom mirrors are amazingly stable unless I get into rough off-road, but then no amount of vibration reducing tricks would help. The other KTM's don't go on-road, so they don't get mirrors. Now if I get a 950/990 one o' these days I'll be ordering some more mirrors from you shortly after.

Limbsaver for motorcycles could be a new product.......
But I suspect it is for damping the very high vibration of a gun vs.
the very low vibration of a single cylinder motorcycle.
The mirror dampers below, I'm waiting for some rider reports.

It's amazing how far you could go into motorcycle science....

Hi, I sent you a pm a few days ago but haven't heard back. How do I purchase a set of mirrors? (can you PM me your paypal address or??) I think I want the shorter ones.

I am in Los Angeles, and I believe you are as well, could I possibly come pick them up this weekend or Monday?

KTM Mirror

Just got my set in from Moto Science. The Aceribis types cant compare to these. Finally I can ride on and off road and actually see behind me when I am on the street.
