Re: Adding Mirrors to a R1150RTP
I had a 1990 K75RT that I purchased as a salvage bike and then customized as a naked street-fighter http://www.cyclepsycho.com/k75/k75.html
I tapped the mirror mount holes on the controls and simply used some Honda mirrors.
I have an 2004 R1150RT and have a hard time getting used to the fairing mount mirror position. I noticed all the RT cop bikes around here have mirrors on the bars.
I thought about tapping the holes on my controls, but they way they are recessed would make it impossible to install Japanese mirrors because it would not allow room for the locking nut. I'll probably make a custom mirror mount to accommodate some Japanese mirrors (as I have hundreds of them and that increases my options for finding the right ones).
Harley-Davidson mirrors would work too, but I'd rather not have all those eagles and chrome.
I'll post something here if I get around to fabricating some mounts.
