KTM mirrors LH thread!

Recieved KTM mirrors after getting part numbers 58712040100 and 58712041100 from a post here. Planned on getting 8mm to 10mm adapters from Dennis Kirk. Thought the darn things were RH thread, but they show up and both are LH. Who the heck makes an adapter from 8 to 10 and RH to LH?
Extremely bummed...

After a couple of deep breaths, I've decided what to do. After peeling the rubber cover off of the stalk, I'll be able to cut off the LH thread, leaving enough shank to re thread in the right direction. Then I'll be able to use the 8mm to 10mm adapters from Dennis Kirk. Blood pressure coming back down...

I just got the KTM adapters. Not the cheapest, but they fit the mirrors like they are supposed to.

Wait till you get them mounted... you'll wonder how you ever rode w/ the old ones.

Not that it'll help you much (good fix, BTW), but I used these EMGOs from JC Whitney. ~$20.00
