I've been enjoying them on my DR650 for months now. I do concur that vibration gets pretty bad above 55mph, but other than that, I have no complaints at all. Thats also the fault of a single thumper too, i dont blame the mirrors. The infinite and quick adjustability makes these well worth the upgrade and investment.

+1 on that. I ordered parts from several different outfits on the same day. The mirrors showed up first and they were farther away than half of my orders.

Btw, love the mirrors Ned. Ordering another set for the KLR.

Count me in the group that had to Plasti-Dip the balls on the mirrors to get them to stay in place on rough terrain. One layer did the trick.

Got a bonus out of this deal: The stock mirrors from my TE610 threaded right onto my SV650 and look 100 times better than the chrome PsOS that came on it.

These mirrors always impress me for how much of a beating they will take. Smack tree branches, scrape across tree trunks, rocks, dirt when I toss the bike, and I just move them back into place and ride on! Stable when I ride fast too.
are you trying to make it grow? You lined it up nice and even with the trees, but they didn't grow either! Must be something in the ground water...

Great pic!

Thank you for the PM. These mirrors are wonderful. Wish I could return the two sets of mirror extenders I had been using before. To all those with wide shoulders, these mirrors with the 6 inch arm work perfectly. Awesome product.

I've had mine for awhile; nobody's mentioned how easy it is to set one of these up to monitor master cylinder fluid levels when reverse bleeding!

mirrors

Just got mine in the mail today. Already put 'em on the Super Enduro, don't know why I waited so long to order. These I think will be the ticket!

Thanks Neduro! The mirrors are excellent.

They arrived in the mail on 6/27 - mounted right up. I rode the bike (2006 KTM 400 EXC) in to work yesterday (54 miles RT). I just can't say enough good things about these mirrors. First and foremost, I have an excellent 360 degree field of vision now and am so much safer as a result. The only distortion from vibration is at full throttle and it's not bad at all. When they are clamped down tight, the assembly is solid and the mirrors stay in place except when I placed my helmet over top of the right mirror when parked.

Just ordered one for my KTM 450. The OE mirror broke at the ball.

I started out just adapting the doubletake mirror to the original HDB plastic pivot but the DT mirror is much heavier which caused massive vibration in the mirror rendering it pretty much useless. So, a couple of weekends back it was raining all day and here's what I came up with to remedy the vibration. The new aluminum pivot arm allows the mirror to tuck in behind the handgaurd just as before. I also added a pivot location up where the mirror attaches to the arm which allows me to fine tune the view. The view out the back is now vibrations free. It was a fun project and now I have a mirror that is useful.
No one replied to your post? I like what you've done! Will you be making more?
