I broke my Mirror... Some Advice
So after trying a Rossi dismount, my boot somehow connected with my RHS mirror... I broke it (at the point where it swivels)

Instead of just getting another RHS mirror, im thinking of going with a set of these Chinese ones simply because they are hollow inside (they dont have that stupid nut underneath that takes up all the space in the fairing) and I can change the connectors.

The problem Im having with the OEM ones is that there is not enough space inside the fairing for the indicator connectors and that nut of the mirror. Its causing some fraying of the wires, crushing of the connector and an increase in my blood pressure every time I take the mirrors off for a track day.

Anybody try these:

I like them because they dont have that nut underneath so I can tuck in the connectors.

I just wonder if I can fit the clear lenses off my current indicators?
They also not adjustable, but dont think that will be too much of an issue since they are useless anyway...

I didn't have any such problems it the connectors or with any of the nuts or anything getting in the way. I just replaced my stock mirrors though with some Rizoma Veloce L's. And those added so much extra length to the wiring it isn't funny, but it all tucks in there pretty decently. The only thing you gotta do is when you have the mirror off, you gotta pull up on the cowling a little bit to separate it from the bar that it connects to and you have plenty of room for moving any of the wires around in a location that is much easier to deal with.

Bump - anyone have experience with the Chinese mirror?

They look very similar to the standard ones. They may not be hollow inside as the nut may just be out of sight, inside the part that mounts to the fairing?

I placed an order, will let everyone know once it arrives (15-30 days time).

Will keep her in track trim until then.
