1000R mirrors

I've had my 1000R only three weeks and just got hit by debris on the motorway there is no real damage to the paintwork that wont polish out but the shock of it must of cracked the glass in the mirror. I'm being told that I have to buy a complete unit and not just the glass, anybody know any different....

Broken mirror.

That could be the case but have you considered making a template of a mirror and getting one cut at a glass shop?

You can get ultra thin mirror glass now that is perfectly ok for you bike. I had one cut for a jap bike once and you could not notice the difference. Cost me about £5.00!!!

Just a thought!

I have thought of that and so far spoken to somebody willing to do it, but it will be flat and not convex

Good point! The first thing I noticed as I covered my first mile on my new bike was the fact the mirrors are totally useless! My Benelli was far better and they were not that good but at least you could see some of the road behind!

Gotta lift the elbows out of the way and look through the hole; you'll see what you want.

NEVER LOOK BEHIND at speed; it's too dangerous...the world comes at you fast ESPECIALLY on an MV.

Be safe folks.
