1090 Mirror Question

Those of you with 1090s, Have any of you replaced the mirror/TS pair and replaced them with either different mirrors or Bar Ends? It looks to me like the base of the stock mirror mount is a cast part that is also the lever perch and the master cylinder.

What did you do to clean this up????

Hi

Removed my mirrors and relocated the indicators onto the headlight bracket. Fitted a set of rizoma radial naked mirrors. IMO it has improved the look, got rid of the annoying buzzing and given me mirrors that actually work.

Removing Mirrors

When I looked at removing the stock mirrors it looks like the mirror base and the lever perch and the master cylinder are all one casting. Did I miss something????

No your right. Remove rubber cap and unbolt mirror stalk and your left with the bolt sticking out of the cast unit. Rizoma do mirrors that attach to that bit using their fitting kit. No one does a set with integrated indicators so you will need to decide what to do about the indicators. Oberon do a set of bar end indicators or its a case of relocating a set of aftermarket ones on the headlight bracket.

Oh. So that is what the fitting kit is for, Makes perfect sense now. Already have a set of Oberon just need the adapters for this sized bar. Pictures when this project is finished.

Thanks

I was considering the oberon and rizoma as well so look forward to the pics. I also ordered the Barracuda mirrors with integrated signals...I know they don't fit but I plan to see what I can do to remedy that in the machine shop.

If you fit Bar-ends you can tidy up by replacing the mirror mount plate with these

Thank You

Thanks Totale,

I didn't realize that those were available, Now I have to choose between the Rizoma Naked or the Bar Ends. Does anyone have experience with this choice, I'm looking for visibility here not Bling.

CRG Arrow or the Rizoma Reverse Retro seem to be the ones I see the most.
