We are looking at a brief escape from Canadian winter in either November or February to Maui. Let me know their company name! Not interested in the Harley rental.

Thanks.

Does anyone know if the back half of the split clamp assy which you screw the stud ball base into will work as a perch mount on my crf250x?

I appreciate any replies!

Thank you

I don't know that it will, but it might. It does serve this function on 950/990 ADV front brake master cylinders.

If you're talking about using the mirror mount side of this:



to replace your existing split clamp from your front master cylinder or lever perch? I've done it on both a Ducati Monster and a Suzuki DR350. I used the split clamp bolts with the Duc, but had to use the stock Suzuki bolts.

Measure center-center distance on your clamp - that's the key. I've got the SuzyQ here at work and can check it - or Ned can measure a new one? Otherwise, the clamp fits any non-cruiser (1") handlebar. Even fatbars are 7/8" at the control section.

Yes, I have mounted mirrors on my 2004 Honda CRF250X using this method.

I note that this is also a possible alternative to a Yamaha left hand thread adapter. On my Duc, I had LH/RH threads. This gave me RH/RH.

I have posted about it several times, but it's official. These mirrors I have don't work.
They fold back at any speeds above 65, and for whatever reason, my DR650 vibrates enough that I can't see if there is a car behind me at night or an airplane.
I wanted to like them so much. Everyone seems to love them. I have sanded the ball, I have crushed the snot out of the rubber ram ball to get them tight enough, the balls are about to split apart.

I want mirrors I can see out of. I have been using them for commuting on the freeway, and they simply don't work for road use on my DR or my DRZ.

Is it at all possible there is a batch of them that were not as good?

I'm really sorry to read this.

I'll PM you, I'd be happy to send you a replacement set and see if that changes anything. It's so odd that your experience is different from so many others and my own- not doubting you, just wish I understood why!

PM incoming.

I understand completely Ned, I tried various things to keep them in place, but no luck yet. I will try the replacements, I hope it works. I kept trying them anyway, partly because so many people have had good reports of them.
