So on a few occasions lane splitting/filtering I've grazed car mirrors with these ktm rabbit ears. It's such a chore having to focus on two points of contact due to the length of the oem mirrors. Has anyone found a solution for the 2017 (I think we've got longer bars)? I would do CRG lane splitters but don't want the vibes and not sure about filing away the original bar end.

Anyone know the part numbers for the RJ rizoma mirrors and attachments?

JackRabbit,
Imho a good bar end mirror is the way to go since you never have to get mirrors to allow a good view and give a clean look at the same time. CRG makes a very versatile mirror in the Hindsight lane splitter. I had a buddy who has a machine shop cut a groove in my stock bar end weights for mounting and these are vibration proof and give a great view while giving a ultra clean look. Picked up some plug caps from local auto shop to fill in the threaded stock mirror location holes.
Would your friend be willing to machine my bar end weights like he did yours?
I'd pay?

Fry,

I could have but he retired from where I work and I dont know any of the machinist that work in that area. Any machine shop in your area could knock them out really quick I bet. I can get you my measurments if you like? Width and depth and how far in from the end. Let me know.

Fry,
Here are some closeup pics to help you decide.

Those are great pics, that is exactly what want to do.

I have a buddy who I think still has access to milling equipment, I just sent him your pics to see if he can replicate it.

Thanks, I appreciate the pics.

Hi, I just ordered the following:

CRG Lane Splitters in Black from Revzilla

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/crg ... cUQAvD_BwE

Image

Bar End Sliders\Bar End Mirror mounts in the Flat Shape, Black variety from Rhino Moto

https://www.rhinomoto.com/https:/www.rh ... or-mounts/

Image

A bit spendy for the total kit but I have seen a few pics of SDR's with this set up and I think it really cleans up the whole front of the bike.

I post up a thread of the install as well as before and after pics.

RJ uses rizoma "elisse" mirrors. I've ordered a set for my sdr from motovation. BS171B and BS172B. You also need adapters for them to fit. Cost is circa $370 USD for the set including adaptors.

I received these mirrors. The left one when aligned properly stops cruise control use. I've asked the dealer to provide me with some kind of black coloured spacer to raise it up a bit and match paint colour.

They're beautiful mirrors. Tightened to the suggested torque, they still move by hand so I'm thinking I should use some thread locker to stop them coming loose at speed.

What you want to see? They're beautiful mirrors, great visibility and they're not massive in your face rabbit ears lol. The yellow glass seems to give a clearer view (or maybe placebo on my part).

Left mirror is lower because I was testing how close to the hands I could ride with them, which position comfortable. Also left one is not straight with bars like right, to avoid touching the cruise control.

Thanks for the pics, those look very nice. A bit to big for my tastes but I know Rizoma is high quality stuff.

They probably work better than the CRG's I just put on, but I'm a bit vain and choose appearance over functionality, mostly.

Thanks Again.

I just got my Rizoma Elisse mirrors today, and must say the quality is impressive. They are much, much better quality than any chinese stuff i've received before (I've had both bar end types like shown above in various pics).

EDIT: I have a "old" SDR (2015) so no fitment issues with cruise for me.

Yeah Rizoma Elisse, by far the best mirrors. Have been resisting to buy a set.
