My New Mirrors!

Here are my new mirrors. Maybe I will be able to see more than my shoulders and elbows now.

I think they look alot better to.





This is a bad pic, But it was about dark. I was trying to compare the new to the old.





BTW, They are KTM mirrors. I have to get 2 adapters to mount them.

These are the 690 supermoto mirrors ($28.00 each). I was gonna go with the Duke mirror's also untill I seen these. I will try and get some better pics next week when I get them installed.

KTM wanted $17.00 a piece for the adapters. So I ordered these in black from Dennis Kirk ($5.00 for a set of 2). - http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/produc...fCatId=&mmyId=

Update 2/20/08 Get the KTM adapters. Adapters from Dennis Kirk would not work.

I actually like yours better than the Duke mirrors that I have. I like the "angles", as I think it matches the V-Strom front angles better.

I can't say enough about these mirrors!!!

Wider and lower to the handlebars = no more view of my shoulder. Rock solid too. Hell, even the mirror itself has three screws to increase the pressure of the "ball and socket" rotation.

Good Choice!!!

Thanks BTD. I was gonna get the Duke mirrors myself untill I seen these. I thought same as you with the angles. Funny thing was they didn't have these in stock, So the guy took them off a bike on the showroom floor and sold them to me.

Got the adapters today. Don't know if its me or what, But the adapters from Dennis Kirk would not work. So I bit the bullet and went back to KTM for the adapters ($24 pair). Mirrors are now mounted and look good. I will try and post pics this weekend. Hope this helps some of you save time in the future if you go this route.

Cost
KTM Mirrors $56.00 pair
KTM Adapters $24.00 pair
Total $80.00
