    I already bought some BUT they don't fit.

    This is like the one that doesn't fit (Note design on back)....

    GS mirrors for 2009 - 1200RT?

    Does anyone know specifically which year or part number GS mirrors fit in a 2009 - 1200RT?

    I have a 2008 GS mirror but it doesn't fit in my 2009 1200RT.
    Maybe there's a special adapter for it??
