Folks,

The rearview mirror (left-hand side) of my 2011 1090RR fell off while in motion and a car ran over it. So it is (sadly) ruined. I couldn't find a part number for the mirror piece only in the MV OEM catalog. There is a part number for the whole rearview mirror assembly (including turn light etc) but I only need the actual mirror piece. Does anybody have any idea where I can get it from?

Thanks in advance!

You cant buy just the mirror glass...

This sounds like a warranty issue, bring it up with your dealer, I'm sure MV will be happy to replace it for you.

+1 The mirrors falling out is a known issue at most dealers. When I brought my bike in to the dealer for a decat and ECU, the service manager actually made a comment that he could not believe mine had not fallen out.

On a side note, how do you like the decat / ECU? Could you notice any improvements? Detractions?

Bike runs better with the new ECU. Less vibration, accelerates smoother. I also like the way the exhaust sounds now. A little bit louder without being annoying.

Not uncommon, and the dealer will promptly replace the entire assembly, as the glass lens is not available separately.

However what is uncommon is the newest replacement mirror is an improvement over the first generation. A colleague here in SoCal recently lost the glass on both sides going over a sharp bump on his brand new My2011, 1090RR. Upon reporting the problem to his dealer, Moto-Forza. Both mirror assemblies were promptly replaced with a 2nd generation mirror.

The gen2 mirrors have the glass permanently secured and alignment is achieved by swiveling the heads. Additionally, the gen2 mirrors are approximately 1.5 inches longer, jutting outboard well past my elbows.

I am currently awaiting replacement on both mirrors from my dealer, a great guy, Steve Spreter, RenMoto, in Tucson. He replaced one a year ago, and neither he nor MV gave any argument, just fast replacement.

Ciao,
Dick

are the new mirrors any useful? they may have made them up to the euro spec as the euro mirrors were a little longer than the us mirros.

If you like the stock mirrors (as I do), then you can rectify the "I only see my elbows" syndrome :naughty:

Have a look at my thread where I successfully moved the lhs mirror stem about 20mm to the left and the rhs mirror I swapped over with the starter button... it only took about 2 hours to do...

I just checked with my dealer on the mirror issue and they said that they'd be filing a warranty claim with MV to have my mirrors replaced. Apparently this is a well known issue.

Rizoma Elisse and Melotti blinkers

After growing increasingly frustrated with the stock mirrors - the glass on the LH side fell off twice, got broken and the whole assembly had to be replaced under warranty. The glass also kept sliding down due to vibration...and the fact that one could only see their elbows in those mirrors...So I finally pulled the trigger and replaced them with a set of beautifully made Rizoma Elisse and installed Melotti LED blinkers as well.

Couldn't be more happier. I can actually SEE what's behind me and gone are all glass vibration, sliding etc issues. The Melotti LED blinkers are pretty cool too.
