Mirrors

Post by R Williams » Wed Jun 24, 2020 7:15 pm

Hello all, changed the 2 things on my GT that have been a pain in the arse to me since I bought the bike , the mirrors. I have to negotiate a narrow side alley to where I keep the bike which means the mirrors have to be undone on the bracket to swing the arms in to avoid water butts, trellis fencing etc.
Well, my old 900 TDM Yamaha had friction adjusters, which made bringing the mirrors in easy, sooooo, Ive changed the mirrors and arms for TDM ones. Perfect ! . An added bonus is that the mirrors DONT vibrate !!!., and they look better too in my opinion.
Only downside is that both KTM handlebar brackets are threaded R/H whereas the R/H Yamaha retaining thread is L/H which meant I had to buy 2 left hand Yamaha brackets. Anyway thought this might be of help to someone. Cheers, Roger.

Clever idea....... how bout a pic?

The KTM mirrors are ordinary and a bit blurry and not the greatest for keeping an eye out for stealthy highway patrol cars....... :lol:
