I just put a pair on an '07 695. They're 10mm x 1.25 threads, but my right mirror perch was LH. So I ordered a split clamp assembly ( http://www.doubletakemirror.com/build/components )and swapped out the perch side with the stock Ducati part - so now they're both RH. Excellent mirrors.

I note that in '07 you might get RH/LH thread, or both RH thread - unscrew the right side mirror to see what you got, the nut will have little cuts on the high points if it's LH threaded.

Question

So 990 / 950 guys.. is the general consensus that these will bend instead of breaking the brake reservoir? Or is it worth still relocating the right mirror?

Reason I ask is I just got my set today (woohoo ) with brackets just in case but there's no more room for me to put a bracket on the right side so I am hoping the stock mount on the brake master will be ok.

I have not put mine to the test yet (not crashed), but with two pivot points and balls at each of these, I would think you should be safe with the stock mount point. I fold my mirrors in when I go off pavement anyway so I am not worried.

I think the stock mount will be OK... BUT, we sell a split clamp that just happens to have the right spacing, so that you can take the mirror off the master cylinder. At $4, the price is right.

Thank you for a great product. I have put these mirrors on my Speed Triple. I've been bitten by a Gymkhana bug and been practicing a lot lately. There is always a danger of dropping a bike during these exercises, so having the ability to fold mirrors inwards, while training is absolutely great! These also stay rigid and not flapping in the wind at speed on highway. Also a bit better visibility and better positioning than stock mirrors.
Thank you!

Pulled the trigger on mirrors and ram hardware today, hopefully they won't take too long to get here!!! It's going to be nice to see something other than my shoulders on the DR650!

Tested my new mirrors last weekend.
Very, very pleased. 550+ miles of gravel They were great. First time I've seen anything in my mirrors besides my shoulders. Very slight vibration. A little movement that needed adjusted. Tightened the handle a time or two. No real issues.
Best part is, they brought me some good luck. I didn't "crash" test them. Very unusual for me with two days riding. Ha

Shipping time was FAST, thank you, I was worried they would not arrive in time for my trip. I will finally be able to see around my shoulders! They also work great for stirring noodles!

Just found out about these very interesting mirrors!..I have a Yamaha TW200 (09 if that makes a difference?)I believe this bike has "reverse" threads on one side of the mirror stalk(s)?.I presume I can get an adaptor somewhere?.
