Broken Mirror

Anyone got a right front mirror for a b4 1078 RR. First Thing that happened I noticed the rubber cover missing after a ride, then the stalk snapped putting the bike cover on, must have got a hard knock in a car park. Or my son who took it for a ride put his helmut on the mirror and someone bumped it, no sign of damage on the front if the mirror, any help greatly appreciated.

Time to get after-market mirrors?
Plenty to chose from that will be a major improvement in efficiency...as in, you'll be able to see what's going on behind you.
I went for the Rizoma limit, other people like the bar-end CRC...
Cheers.

There are few threads here about AM mirrors, complete with photos.

You could get the ball rolling so to speak by posting a pic of yours up

I think I'm the only one on here who doesn't mind the standard mirrors?

Unfortunately, I recently did a low-side on my 1078 RR on the left side. I'm still waiting for the insurance process to go through, but I was already planning to get Rizoma's over the winter. If you can wait a bit for the insurance/repair process to go through, I'll have a perfect right side mirror to offer you.
