Question R100RS mirror extensions?

Anyone know about these, if still around or?

RS Mirror extenders


Any other suggestions?

I know inmate MymindsOK has a custom set from a rally, but don't know who made them.

Not that I know of, but there are a few examples around of mirrors from other bikes that stick out a little further.

Some require another hole to be drilled to accommodate them.
oem to the left. I can't remember the origin of the other one.


I see you've found that other link.

Hey Rapid Dog,

Quit stealing photos from my Photobucket account.

Don't you have the decency to ask before you take something that doesn't belong to you?

Ken, he didn't steal it, he linked to it. On the Internet, if you don't want your images to be public, don't put them in public...

Nope...

I'm just tired of this guy using my images.

Had a set on a 88RS .. they were ok, I had to stiffen it a little. I cut a rubber stopper in half and pushed it in the open space on the bottom.
It stopped the mirror shake. It will do the job and you can see the road.

Nick sent me an email. He still has some. I may make an attempt to fab my own. I may try a mod with Napoleons when I get there...

Nick is a good guy, and an outstanding Airhead. I'm glad he's still got the mirror extensions available. Can you share his eMail address/contact info, in case someone wants to get one of his mirror extensions?

I periodically toy with the notion of attaching RS mirrors to the Windjammer fairing on my /5, but the stock handebar mirrors are so old-school funky...

No need to send it to me... I was wanting it here in case someone else needed it. I see that the contact info is in the link you gave in your opening post.

Thanks anyway. :)

violating 2 club canons #85

Airheads don't take themselves, religion, or life too seriously.

Airheads like to share time, knowledge, parts, (pictures) and camaraderie with other Airheads.

Gotta love those canons. They even make sense on occasion.

The ABC (Airhead Beemer Club) has eight Canons
(1) Airheads ride Beemers with air-cooled heads.
(2) Airheads believe that the simplest engineering solutions are best.
(3) Airheads appreciate function over form, fact over fiction, and friendship
over friction.
(4) Airheads regard money as a tool, not a status symbol.
(5) Airheads are earthy people who like to camp.
(6) Airheads maintain their own motorcycles.
(7) Airheads don't take themselves, religion, or life too seriously.
(8) Airheads like to share time, knowledge, parts and camaraderie with other Airheads.

Peace and love.
