(can't hang your helmet on your mirror anymore).

Another highly satisfied customer. I've been using mine a while, both off-road and on the superslab. I like the view better than stock KTM and have not had any trouble with them moving around when firmly tightened by hand, even up to 90 mph.

I really like being able to fold or remove them even for short trail rides.

I'm tickled spitless with my new mirrors. The old DRZ went from this...



To this in less than two minutes...



Mighty fine product...

Well, we've had the mirrors installed on one of the HP2's and one of the XT660Z's for a few months and some thousands of kilometers on and off road. We've had them side by side with the original mirrors and with the foldable "rally" style mirrors, so we could compare directly.
  • Optically they are first class. As good or better than the originals and way better than the foldable "rallye" style ones
  • They work as advertised. I guess they are impossible to break. They just get out of the way even if you didn't care to fold them.
  • Both the HP2 and the XT660Z are a bit rough vibration wise. The Double Takers coped well enough. The stock mirrors vibrate a wee bit less, but unlike the other foldables, the Double Takers are readable at speed. I can't read the licence plate of the car behind me at 130 km/h (well I can't do that on the stock mirrors either) but I can definitely gather brand and model (which is absolutely not the case with the rally style foldable mirrors (they are pretty useless above 50 km/h)
  • We found that the condition of the RAM mount can be significant on the amount of grip they exert on the mirror. We got one scuffed old RAM mount that couldn't grip properly anymore (the one you see on the second picture bellow). The Double Take mirror would fold back with the air pressure above 160 km/h (100 mph). We tried another ball/arm set and it worked fine from then on.
  • All in all, we think they are a great product, well worth the investment.

Nice job Ned

They shipped out today via USPS priority mail, typically international shipments are estimated at 5-10 business days

Has anyone else had problems with these moving?

I have tightened them as tight as I can by hand. They are ok on the street, but on dirt they slowly sink until I have to move them up again.

Yeah... is that what everyone else is doing? Dual track or fire roads... 50-70mph, you are all folding them in?

Mine don't move much. They make work down slightly but it takes a bit, and it's super simple to just move it back up again. You could also throw some electrical tape on the ball and that should hold it.

Bonnie doesn't really ever fold them in, and her's don't seem to move.

Mine don't move at all. I usually flip them down when I hit the trails, but on the few occasions when I've forgotten to put them down the only time they've moved is when I crashed I mostly ride trails and on occasion have jumped on the highway for short stretches, doing 75mph doesn't seem to make a difference.
