09 Versys mirrors

I've had it with the OEM mirrors, and now the plastic is cracked. Has anybody tried the Versys mirrors they sell on ebay for approx. $30.00 a pair?

To aid in the reduction of mirror shakes, I got these 10mm mirror adaptor dampers.

I had Kawasaki replace my OEM mirrors twice. I bought Aprilia Tuono mirrors and they are miles better than the OEM. Do yourself a favor and Google them and buy a pair. They can be bought for $50 or so for the pair. Some use mirror extenders with them and others say they dont need the extenders. All that being said, I have a pair of OEM mirrors I'll send you for $25 if you want them.

The OEM Mirrors are junk, I've had nothing but problems with them. Below is a link to the mirrors I was referring to:

I replaced the OEM mirrors because I got tired of looking at my shoulders. I chose KTM 990 Super Duke mirrors and have been very pleased with them. They're well built and the stems are longer enabling me to actually see what is behind me. They aren't cheap but I justified it by telling myself you get what you pay for.

My two cents. Good luck with finding better mirrors.

I bought the 30 dollar Z1000 (from China) mirrors from ebay. They looked good, but they are a poor quality metal and the left one snapped at the threads after a little time, about one season. You get what you pay for.

Thanks for the input everybody. I'll probably buy the Aprilia Tuono mirrors.

I can't fault you Joe. You seem to find some great deals, Then help others find what they are looking for.. Great job, with a kind heart.

When you get the rubber dampers (and the Yamaha mirrors) please give us a write up on your impressions. Thanks.

I bought these because I broke a bolt on the OEM mirrors trying to tighten them. These don't come loose and don't have the vib issues of the OEM.

I've tried several different mirrors over the years. Best ones I've found are from a ZRX1100 or 1200.
They screw right on and are metal so vibration is good. Used ones can be found on the ZRXOA forum for usually around 30 buck or so a pair. I love mine, in fact I run them on my KLR650 too and they are perfect.

There's a set of ZRX mirrors on the ZRXOA forum right now for $25 shipped.
I love mine!

This chain is old but I'm also having problems with stock mirrors.
Any current recommendations? Would love links for mirrors that bolt and not screw and if folks are also needing extenders for them to work properly.
My issue is solely my mirrors staying put. I see fine with them when they are where they need to be.
