He has fantastic customer service and a top notch product. Works especially well for traffic splitting in Seoul.

Very Important

When you installing them be extra careful when you screw them in, as that part its very soft and would snap if they get tight too hard.

Try the factory folding mirrors that come on the Husky 510 TE.

They are great on the left side (I only have 1) and dont vibe like the other folders I tried in the past.

Looks like there may be a space problem between the master cylinder and the bar though...

could you be a bit more precise when bashing a Japanese product :)? Asking because I am looking for mirrors, anything, well, almost anything is better than the stock ones on my Versys.

If anyone wants to part with their Super Duke OEM mirrors please let me know.

chill out

...not bashing, just sayin' the PO bought some, quote "cheap" mirrors, probably of a Jap bike since he busted the left KTM one off...

That said, I got my Henri mirrors today, the jury is out as i haven't ridden the bike yet. But the bar mount brackets resemble the one's on my son's made in China bicycle...

The folding mirrors from KTM twins work just fine for me. I think they are the gerneric made in China folding mirrors that many vendors sell.

Yes, if you over tighten the nut to the mount they will break. Yes, they vibrate, but not any worse than the stockers IMO. The are mirrors for offroad use, which means you can fold them up and not break them in a crash. Thats the whole point of folding mirrors. They do vibrate, but thats a very minor issue to me as I'm offroad or on dirt road most of the time and any mirror will vibrate in those conditions.......

I could not be any more "chill" than I already am...although now is warming up, only -20C... :)

I was actually asking for details, for those cheapos. Like I said, I am looking for mirrors for my Japanese bike :)
