Replacement Mirros from China?

I need a new mirror and have been looking.
Anyone have any experience with those mirrors shipped from China on Ebay?

I buy lots of stuff from China for my Harley. The majority of items are pretty good. It'll certainly be cheap!

Re: Replacement Mirros from China?

I bought a pair for my LT. Seem to work just fine. Certainly are cheaper than new OEM mirrors. I have a 2000, and didn't want to put much money in a bike that I can't seem to give away for $3000.

Re: Replacement Mirros from China?

I bought a set from china, and had them painted, still came out way ahead of the OEM, but this time I screwed them on (two screws in each one to make sure they don't fall off-just adds a minute or so when I am taking tupperware off). They are not nearly the same quality, but not sure I want mirrors on the bike costing more than the bike (2000)!

Did you do the screw thru the vent hole and tap the hole on the fairing?

Awesome Thanks for the info. These bikes are expensive enough, I'll cut corners where I can.

Re: Replacement Mirros from China?

i have them on my 99 K1200LT and they are not the same quality but they work. Make sure you buy the scraps to hold them on. I learn the hard way on 700 mile trip when I encountered road construction and the original ones fell off. I saw them fall in slow motion but unfortunately, I was unable to find them.
