Good Replacement Mirrors

Guys,



My mirrors like other V owners, are starting to loosen. Can anyone suggest a good non-factory replacement mirror. Thanks, GV09

Here is some that bones recomended, I just recently bought A set, but can't yet elaborate on how they are. I still haven't put them on the bike yet, and its still to cold to ride just yet as well.

The price is quite resonable.

I use ZRX mirrors on my Versys and love them. They are all metal so they are clearer and my rear view is great with their angle.

After 7 months and almost 9000 miles, I got tired of readjusting the mirrors every time I ride and bought these! Order these just a couple of days ago, should be in next week.

Well I put my emgo mirrors on yesterday, I like the way they look and adjust, but haven't been able to ride as of yet so I still can't rate there performance. I also installed my Arrow slip on exhaust yesterday and reinstalled the lower front plastics that I spray painted flat black.
alvis I like those KTM mirrors I was gonna go with the KTM mirrors also but just A little to pricey for me but they look great.

I checked out the KTM mirrors as they look great. But the two mounts are $17 and change each and each mirror was just under $30, so with shipping about $100 or so. I passed.

The EMGO Mark II's I have are on their second bike, had them for 5 years, they work well and look great IMHO. The money you save over the others will fill your fuel tank many times. Your money.

Ditto on the KTM mirrors. I have them and they're a little bit lower and a little bit wider than the stock mirrors, but they stay in adjustment. I think they vibrate just a little bit less too.

I didn't like the price, but I scored a used set for $40.

Ok,,, I find out the name of your mirrors MotoCop!!!

Now,,, a question...

Can they be installed using just the screw in bolt threads that was factory on the Versys???

I have the KTM Handguards and am scratching my chin thinking about trying these mirrors out mounted outside the Hand Guards...

Opinions for success are wanted...

I purchased these on Ebay for $15.00. They're made of aluminum with real glass convex mirrors. How can you go wrong?

You should be able to with a little modification to the mirror.... there is a aluminum tube that is made to go into the inside of the bar but I couldn't do that with the threaded bar ends so one side I cut off the tab/tube and tried that on the left side and decided I didn't like just how close it all was on my hand so went to the hard ware store and got 2 longer bolts and just ran them through the bar end weight and put on a silicone garden hose washer to add some friction between the end weight and the mirror I can take some more pictures if you want.

I like your mirrors. Did you cut off the ends to make the bar end hollow? Can you show pics of your install?
