How about a rectangle bit with threaded holes on the sides, make it about 3/8th's thick, make holes use the ram ball on the 1/4x20 pin.

If it had a hole on each side they would fit darn near anything..


PS if this works I need a code.. LOLOLOL

So the temperature dropped 45 degrees Monday afternoon, and our fine riding fall disappeared into a polar vortex. This severely bums me out.

So, here's a new code, good until 12/1/14, for 10% off. "wwnga" which stands for Welcome Winter, Now Go Away.

Here is the only catch: You have to apply the code yourself. We won't go back and update past orders and send a refund, and if you meant to put it in, but didn't, that's on you.

On the checkout screen, the box is on the upper right- type in the code, hit apply, and bob's your uncle.

I've got to throw my hat in on the rectangular mirror idea! I like rectangular mirrors because you can have a wider field of vision without having to include so much sky.
As for the design, I recommend putting a ball on the back centered vertically but, on one end of the mirror. The reason for this would be so you could get the maximum width which is a huge deal to those of us who are broad-shouldered! It would also allow for the maximum inward fold if you're wanting to move them inward.
I'm broke as a joke right now but, I want a set! If you make them rectangular I'm definitely in!!!!
Congratulations on making a fine product!

I had a mishap loading my XT225 onto my truck today and dropped it on to the ground. I broke one of my mirrors. So, I ordered a pair of double take mirrors. I had been looking at the double take mirrors anyways, so this was just the impetus to make it happen.

If I run into the problem of the ball not being tacky enough, I think one wrap of vulcanized electrical tape will solve it. Vulcanized electrical tape is a self sealing, rubber, waterproof electrical tape that is available for about $3 at virtually any hardware store.
