Evotech Mirror extensions

Needed some mirror extensions for the Tiger, and in hunting around found some from Evotech.



They're finished with a wrinkle powdercoat and use a stainless steel bolt. I found the plain steel recessed socket head cap screws used on some others collects rain water and corrodes: these don't.

I paid $47 on eBay and really like them.

Yup, You could always add stainless bolts to those if the allen head carbon steel ones bother you.

These look fine but I don't see any advantage over the richland rick's.

You could drill two holes in aluminum bar stock, paint them and add mild steel socket head cap screws for a few dollars.

This is for people who want something really nice.

Spacers are needed to get the bars over the switch housings too. They are often not pictured so make sure they are included.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I also got some off E-Bay, for a lot less than most of the others. Around $18.00, it really depends on how much machine time is involved as to the price. Like G-Man said, a flat block with 2 tapped holes isn't rocket science, around $3.00 for material, look for a anodized finish if you can, this won't come off, BUT, it can fade. Cheers--BB

If you have a source for stainless in the correct size, let me know who they are, will you please?

Thanks!

You need a m10 x 1.25 pitch, they also have titanium, yes they are expensive! Cheers--BB

Correct, you need to find a spacer for the left side. I've found them at HD or Lowes. They don't usually have metric so I drill out an inch spacer.

Not tapered like the ones at Probolt and they show the pitch as 1.25 versus 1.5 - is that a typo?

McMaster Carr has Stainless SHCS in lengths from 16mm up.

I have what I think are the SW Motech extensions. The left side (the one with the spacer) is 35mm and the right one is 20mm. Can someone measure the Richland Rich or other brand and put down the lengths here?

I'm willing to order several boxes and split them up. For example:

- M10x20mm bolts come 5 to a box for $7.70 per box ($1.54 each) plus shipping.
- M10x35mm are $1.80 each.

If I bought a box of the 20mm and shipping was $5 (typical) with a stamp and envelope you're looking at about $6 per pair mailed to you - anyone interested? If so I'll put that together, if not I'll stop by the local Metric Screw & Tool outfit and see if they have them each.

The only place I've reliably found stainless metric socket head cap screws is bicycle shops and they don't usually have M10.

On the clutch side (L/H) you need a longer spacer than the (R/H) throttle side just to make them the same height. You'll also need a longer bolt for the L/H side because of this. My extensions were made on a angle to clear all the switch controls, but still needed the spacer to get into the same plane so to speak. I didn't need this on my Vee with the hyd. clutch. I bought my bolts from a race-car supply warehouse somewhere in Arizona and paid out the a$$ for them, around $7.00 a bolt, plus a hefty shipping charge, I didn't bother to try to find them to post a link, it took 3 weeks to get them!
