    Wing mirrors

    Hi all,

    Has anyone found a decent replacement for the ornaments that pass for wing mirrors on the Gen 2 RSV? It looks like gsxr k8 mirrors will not right on and they have longer arms.

    Cheers
    Ian

    I've used the mirrors/indicators from a '08-'14 Honda Fireblade. I did need to make some tapered spacer to go underneath the mirrors to stop them "drooping" down. The bolt centres are very close, I just used a rat-tail file to alter the holes. The original bulbs for the Honda are 21W but the 10W bulbs from the RSV are a straight swap. The improvement on the rear view is excellent.

    Thanks, I think this are similar to the gsx mirrors I looked at. How did you make your spacers? I suppose a block of polythene and a file and quite a few hours would work.

    Yes, I did consider using the GSX-R mirrors, they would have worked, the extra width was almost exactly the same but I thought that the Fireblade mirrors looked better. Polythene would work perfectly well but I machined them out of aluminium.
    If you're a member of the Aprilia Performance group on Facebook or if you don't mind me having your e-mail address, I could send you some pics.
