KTM Folding Mirrors

I bought some rotating mirrors off of ebay awhile back. To make it easier lane splitting. Really liked them but they tend to move on you at higher speeds and hitting rough roads. Got a second pair in this week from eBay similiar but they tighten at a different spot and hold solid. The view in the second set is not near as good and vibrate way too much. So just ordered these.....https://moto-science.com/collections...rch-6804p-pair

Ordered the mirrors Friday night got them early Monday morning. Just put them on. I think they look good on the bike and the field of view is awesome with no vibrations. Tons of adjustment and the rotate up and down to move out of the way if needed when lane splitting..

I went to that site, $100, however what caught my attention was the Convex optical quality glass. Basically eliminating blind spots, like yourself even though lane splitting isn't allowed in Ontario, many car drivers think they are on a racetrack once traffic gets heavy, several times I have had these ( BMW driver) cut across 3 lanes and pass , then cut back in, some really close calls, if you are directly beside me but back 3 feet I can't see you, as I have my mirrors set to try and cover 2 lanes.

So what I am asking is if you could post a second video showing adjustments and the swivel action, also read this swivel action can be locked down if you don't want it. I see you have Speedy mirror extenders, I held off for a year then needed more real-estate as my heated grips controller hit my tank bag a full lock, so the extenders made a huge difference. We have a KTM dealer in the city I live in, not necessarily the best price but available.

I have the adapter going into my motowerk mirror extender and it has a nut to tighten it down. The adapter has a ratcheting action that you can make as loose or as tight as you want to move the mirrors or lock them down. I have mine where they take a little effort to move them but they keep the position you put them in. If your sitting on the bike the way i have mine mounted you can move the mirrors from how you see them in the photos to where they are pointed at each other toward the center of the bike. It's raining right now but i will make a video later showing what i mean.

When i bought the Z-1000 mirrors for my V-650 they were over 50.00 a piece so i okay with the price. I have the stock mirrors and 2 other sets of mirrors i tried and wish i would have seen these sooner. I'll make a video today once it stops raining..
