Initial Verdict - 1090 RR

Yesterday we had a window of good weather (relatively speaking!) which meant I could have a proper ride on my new Toy, did about 100 miles and all I can say the more I ride the more I like, suspension, brakes, handing, loads of torque and even the sound with the std cans... all tick the right boxes for me. Only complaint is those tacky mirrors which are annoying at best!

I did almost 3.5k miles on mine last year, once the good weather comes you be able to stay off it .

I managed to sort the mirrors by applying two bits of black double side foam tape (for no.plates)under the mirror glass in the areas they were vibrating then slicing it off flush with the glass .

No more mirror noise .

Do you have a pic where you put the tape?

I tried to take some today but they didn't turn out very well, just identify the area where the glass is closest to the housing in 2 places , it is only ever going to drop so this will be in the lower area.

you may have to try a few different places but it wll work and your bike will still look as the factory intended.

Hope this helps .

Billy, you've hit the mark, kinda fluttering mirrror. I've already tried to fix it up but failed, will follow Steve's advice.

the mirror stays put i put on some really really thin double sided tape on the ball of the ball and socket on the back of the mirror and it stays put.

that and the fact the mirrors are useless since they don't extend far enough.

great bike to ride, but damn the gas mileage is horrible i'm getting 22mpg, wtf? lol

GET THE CRC'S and never look back!!! Seriously, they do so much for the look of the bike. I love mine. Youll need the adapters.. God they look good though.
