Mike in Louisiana writes about the 2008 KLR650 's :


"All is OK!" The 2008 and newer KLR's does have 8mm left handed threads on their mirror stems, this is threaded into a rubber bushed adapter that then threads into the control mounts with a 10mm right handed thread. I removed the rubber bushed adapter and was able to screw your KTM folding mirrors into the 10mm control mount with no problems.

If for some reason I decided that I still needed to use the rubber bushed adapter I would need to purchase still another addapter to go from a 8m male to an 10mm female that would allow me to screw your mirrors onto the KLR adapter. I don't think I will have to go that route... I like the current installation.

You might consider putting on your page, "for 2008 and newer KLR's," the rubber bushed adapter will have to be removed.

PS: I did take your suggestion and used blue locktite on the threads and did not over tighten. I also used it on the screw in the pivot joint and only tighenting it enough to make it steady but still allowing for vertical adjustment.

Hey Henri, I just got back from 10 days in Baja, and the mirrors were fantastic. Droped the bike like 6 times, broke a lever, but the mirrors were 0 problem at all. My riding buddy broke both of his Honda mirrors. He bought some emergency Emgo Mirrors in San Diego, so expect a call from him soon

Dropped it six times....that's almost too much testing.

Henri - I just broke my mirror on a ride thru the snow. The mirror and metal shaft are ok, its the plastic piece right above the "rotating circle" that broke. Can I buy just that part or do I need to get a whole mirror?

Thanks

Rick

PS The mirrors have been awesome! The best view I've had of approaching traffic!

Put them back together with some $5.00 epoxy! I took a bit of time to make sure there was no epoxy in the "teeth" on the wheel that would make it harder to fold out of the way. Works great now!

A few ??........

These Ducati morrors would fit my new BMW X Challenge......Yes?


Ducati Folding Mirrors 225-325mm Adj. Stems - Pair

$98.00





Also, a buddy of mine mounted bar end mirrors on his BMW F800ST and they vibrated like a bugger. We drilled a small hole in the housing and filled them with #7 lead bird shot.......So stable now you could shave in them!


I fill all my handle bars with #7 bird shot. Amazing difference with vibrations. Highly recommended!
