I have a high-quality NWOT leather jacket that I bought when I rode cruisers, but I never used it and it doesn't scream "cruiser rider," meaning that you could use it on the V....and I could let it go for cheap relative to other jackets. PM me for pics if interested. It's thick and heavy, so shipping would have to be figured out....

I've got a set of KLR hand guards in black, never installed, with all the hardware. Even an extra left one (Shipping error).
PM me if interested.

I purchased the Tuono mirrors on Ebay for $34 for a pair (item number 270849847432). They seem to be of high quality and are nice because they stick out to the side a lot further and are higher as well.

The $34 Ebay price is for a pair of mirrors. The OEM price was closer to $100 for two mirrors. I think they are one and the same product, just sold direct from the Chinese factory. What ever the case the quality of the Ebay product is very good.

These are the exact sliders... I got them from ZGfiredude after he sold the bike. They retail for $180... how about $90 plus shipping?

Hi Sprocket!

You have been my saver for many items
I ordered the mirrors you recommended and I should receive them within the next two weeks. You said that they are of high quality , how about vibration at hi speed?

Thanks a lot!

I have these too (ebay ones), no vibration around town, and barely perceptible vibration on the highway although not enough to affect visibility. When mounting them though it is important to get the lower nut very tight (with blue locktite)and then tighten the upper nut to lock the mirror in place, otherwise they will pivot all over the place.

I was thinking about adding some rubber ring in the lower nut to dump the minor vibration you mentioned
