KLR Mirrors!

Just found some KLR mirrors on eBay for 20 bucks shipped to the door. They are excellent for the V as they give you a little bit more clearance around your elbow. I love them I think they look great too!!

So far so good with the new mirror.

Great visibility around the elbow and no vibration like the factory mirrors.

Well worth the $20!!!

Do they stay in place when riding. I'm about to tear the stock mirrors off my V. Every bump they move. The KLR stalks long longer too.

Those don't look like the KLR Lollipop Mirrors that came on MY KLR. They shook so bad I tried the Versys mirrors on it when I upgraded to Aprillia mirrors on the Versys. The Versys mirrors are much clearer on the KLR that the factory one were.


Or was that look THEN leap?

The Versys ones are the best mirror on any bike I've ever owned. No idea why anyone would change them

I specifically ordered 2009 KLR mirrors for my 2008 Vers.

I had a 2009 KLR, and loved the service from the stock mirrors, and I disliked the stock Vers mirrors, plus one was busted. when I got it.

Ps: if you considering getting stock, round KLR mirrors, a parts counter at a dealer wanted twice what I paid for my set from Bandit, Zilla or wherever I got em. Much like windshields, seats and tires, there are going to be diverse opinions on this topic. To each his own.

I enjoyed the he*ll out of my KLR, 34,000 smiles

oh, Vers pic:


A face only a mutha could love...

These were advertised as KLR mirrors??

Regardless they are excellent.

They don't vibrate and stay where I put them.

I once had a mirror that would creep on me, so I just put some Loctite in the swivel and it worked great after that!
