Mirror adapters

I have a set of K1200RS mirrors that I want to transfer to my new R1250RT

My 07 had holders built in for them.
The new bike doesn't.
Which adapter should I use?

Daniel


If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

Re: Mirror adapters

I bought the Wunderlich adapter for my 1200 RT, but found that my mirrors didn't clear the lowered windshield when placed so that they were effective. So, for $13 I bought a pair of extensions on Amazon that look nice and are rock solid. If the mirrors you install have the same issue you can find them here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I got these mirrors and brackets on Ebay and have been real happy with them on my '18 R 1200 RT LC . A great economical alternative to others.

As the other poster mentioned, an extension is needed for the mirror arm to clear the windscreen when retracted. This one is nice, also economical, and does the job:

I already have the mirrors. All I need is the adapter
The extentions look great though
