Really fine looking product, Ned...

I wish I'd had these on my 640A. And I may ADD them to the Highway Dirtbikes setup if I don't like the adjustability (lack thereof) of those mirrors. (Hard to beat their handguards, I think......)

Ned - you have made the last, best, ultimate DS mirror setup!

Eventually! I made an an enormous investment to have a mold made in the USA- I'd really like to get that paid for before I begin discounting.

I had it out, "in use" on a short ride I got out for yesterday....did not bother to turn it in when I got on the trails...It got smacked by all sorts of things and held up just fine.

I had to break myself of the habit of turning my whole head around to see what was behind me. I can now actually look in mirror and see what is there.

Discount?? I think its priced pretty damn fair. Maybe a $5 discount if you buy a set.....I was happy buying one and paying $25...and I am a cheap bastid. LOL

Krabill: You might try dipping the ball end on some rubber tool handle compound. Might work.

Just tighten the damn knob! If you go with the smaller ball it will want to slip even more.

So far I've placed about 500 miles on mine. All I can say "Good job Ned!". I owned the other mirror that's sold on this site and all I can say it's a night and day difference. A lot Less vibration on the mirror and I can actual see what's behind me now. I haven't tested them in a drop yet, but I do believe wtih the way they are designed they will hold up just fine.

Anyone that's still on the fence in regards to buying one, just go for it you will not be disappointed !!

My Double Takes got a good workout today and held up fantastically!

I crashed pretty hard doing a hillclimb on my WRr and the left side mirror folded right up, no damage to the glass or the body of the mirror (can't say the same for myself, though ). Then, we hopped on the highway and rode about 100 miles. I could see everything the whole time! They even held steady in an incredible headwind and through a dust devil , that almost tore my helmet off my head!!!

Thanks Ned for developing such a great product!

Double take and HDB

Chadx, I too have the HDB setup and just ordered the Double-take mirrors. I see you've mounted some RAM balls in the HDB top plate - did you use the same ones/same size stem from the Double-take site? Did you have to tap out the HDB top plate or did you use a nut on the bottom? Just trying to find out what size fits! Looks good!

Thanks -

Had the chance to look closely at a WR250R this weekend (thanks, Bonnie Abbzug!) and want to clarify what to order for that bike.

The stock mirror includes an R/H - L/H adapter which is under the rubber at the lower end of the stock right mirror. You can wind it off the mirror, and use a RAM-B-349 (Ball stud w/ 10mm x 1.25 normal thread) that you get from us or anyone else.

Therefore, I recommend ordering the same parts for both left and right side, and using the stock adapter.

Here's a picture of the adapter with a Ball Stud threaded in:



I'll update my web page shortly, figured I'd start here. :-)

Thanks, everyone, for the great reviews!

I think the single compound would be good--that way that joint is the one that will move first in an impact.

I didn't think RAM advised on using the A size on motorcycles, something about not handling the vibes/abuse.

My suggestion for a later addition to the website is to include the dual-ball clamp as an option. I don't have the bar space for two mounts (mirror and GPS) so I will be ordering from another site.

^^^^^ I already had that exact thought too. I am using two single mounts right now, but when I need more space, I am gonna order this dual ball mount:

Wow, I had just ordered a replacement OEM for my KTM 640 Enduro and fortunately saw this in time to cancel the order.

I may end up getting a set for my F800 also, as they get knocked around pretty good, too.

Great job, Ned!!
