    I need a reply to the PM to know where to send 'em!

    Nowwhat, send me your address too (PM).

    The mold process is fairly precise, so I'm at a loss for why the variation... maybe within the RAM arm? :dunno

    This kind of response is what separates Ned's company from so many others. He hears the customer's issue and is trying to solve the problem. Bravo!!!!!! :clap

    The standard ball stud base fits both Honda and L/S (Clutch) of the Yamaha.

    On the R/S of a Yamaha, you need either our Yamaha Adapter, or on most models (including the WR250R) there is actually an adapter screwed onto the bottom of the stock mirror.

    Thanks for the reply Ned. I got one of the guys at work sold on them now, so he is putting them on all his bikes. He liked the way I mounted mine to the stock mirror perches and wanted to do the same. :clap

    It's pretty awesome seeing the level of support provided for these mirrors within this thread. I stumbled across this product before seeing this and was on the fence in terms of placing an order.

    I am going to now get my order in this evening when I get home. Good stuff.

    Do you have them mounted to a RAM ball in a stock perch?? or do you have a U bolt type RAM set up?

    I ask cause I had an issue with mine moving, at one point, but it was not the mirror or arm moving, it was the ball mount in perch spinning(loose). Some red loctite and no more issues.

    Yes, stock perches, but they aren't spinning, I used blue loctite.
    Good point though,

    Do you run a plastic 'clamp' or the metal version? Plastic ball or the metal ball? I am looking at getting some mirrors for my pig. Waiting to see how this turns out. Ned, do you recommend the all plastic ram mount or the metal, especially when vibration is an occurring event?

    Just mounted a set on my 2013 690 and they work great, and hold up under a lot of pounding dirt roads...

    I switched to the short Polycarbonate Ram arms quite a while back, due to weight and compactness.
    They are indeed light and bite the rubber coated ball real well. If you try the longer Plastic arm you'll probably break it, I found that it doesn't take the tightening torque as well as the shorty.
    I think the slightly textured Poly arms bite the ball better than the Painted/powdercoated Aluminum does, plus you can rough up the inside of them a bit if you like.
    I also notch them a bit to give me more range of movement, for certain applications.

    Some pics of the mirrors out on adventure...

    :thumbupmine stay where i put them, get out of the way when asked to or required to by physics, no appreciable difference in vibration over stock mirrors for me. well thought out, well made, and sold by nice people (great service from Natalie at Doubletake).

    a few from the last trip:

    Hey Ned,
    Do you have deals going on these right now? I need 4 set ups and it's a bit pricey so want to check before I pull the trigger.

    Thanks! :freaky
