What a great idea. As soon as I fugure out what is going to work on my Ducati, I will order a set The biggest benefit for me is that I could easily remove them when I go to track days

I was just checking these out on your site and wanna make sure of something. This is the page I am looking at:

http://www.doubletakemirror.com/build/components

The "mirror" is the plastic arm and mirror itself, correct??

What is the "reflector"?? Something goes on the back side??

In other words, I do not wanna pay $25 for a piece of plastic, and not have a mirror attached to it. I am hoping the "reflector" is not the "mirror", and more importantly, not something I have to buy extra, really making the mirror $35.

If it is indeed $25 for the mirror, then expect another customer. Its a good concept. If its $35 for the mirror, because I am required to by the "reflector"...which is really the "mirror"...then its just poor marketing and I shall not be a customer.

Try looking at your specific bike page...suzuki right?

http://www.doubletakemirror.com/build/suzuki

The mirror is the arm + reflector glass for $25.00.


The components page lists the reflector glass separately for $10 as a replacement if yours should happen to break.

Hope this helps.

As Region Riley explained, the mirror includes the reflector by default.

The goal of making the glass piece available separately is to do consumers a favor, by making the reflector available in the event it got broken somehow. The arm is guaranteed forever, but if you whack it hard enough, I'm sure it is possible to break the glass (although I haven't done so yet). Making the glass available separately would avoid you having to buy another $25 mirror in that event, when all you needed was the glass insert.

Sorry for the confusion!

Reflector

Just to let you know that despite also being named Riley I didn't figure it out like Region Riley did. I thought that the reflector was also some sort of add on. Maybe calling it a replacement part or some such would clarify for the rest of us.
Ordered two sets earlier today despite my ignorance!

OK, very good. I did not put two and two together and realize that the " reflector( replacement mirror)" was something you could buy if you broke one...as a replacement......another good idea. ( maybe a webpage change is in order)

I am on my third mirror and still not 100% satisfied...add that to the fact that I have spare Ram mounts from various GPS mounts I have purchased, buying one of these is a no brainer.....so I shall be a customer...with in the next two weeks.

Thanks for clearing that up and responding quickly.

The aluminum RAM arms are more robust. The plastic arms are more likely to break. Both will work, though, but I'm going with the aluminum ones since I've had better luck with those for other applications.

I went with "Replacement Reflector" because the whole assembly is called a mirror... does that seem clear?

2002 F650GS mount?

Great looking product Ned.

Anyone know the thread spec to replace the '02 F650GS mirror boss clamp with a ram mount? I know it is 10mm but wondering on 1.25 or 1.5 threading.

Perfect. Once it was cleared up, and I paid my bills last night, I went ahead and ordered. Can't wait for it to get here now.
