    R1200R & R1200GS - mirrors

    I compared the R and GS mirrors on the MAX and A&S online fiche, and now I am more confused.

    Has anyone learned the answer to the following:

    - Are the R and GS mirrors the same?
    - Are the right and left mirrors the same? Or more specifically:
    - Are the right and left mirror stanchions threaded in the same direction?
    - Are the nuts on the end of the stanchions threaded in opposite directions on each side?

    Thanks.

    Fred,

    From memory - when I put the GS handguards on, using the GS handguard mounts, that include the mirror mount.. the threads are both "normal" clockwise (righty-tighty) threads. In any case - I'm using the R mirrors in GS mounts on my R..

    You're asking why?

    I was spoiled with the R1150R mirrors. Each side were the same part, and the R and GS used the same part.

    Should'a known. Same reason I bought 2 O2 sensors and a complete wiring harness off Ebay - because I could. Makes sure I'll never need them..

    Fred. The mirrors fit both sides. Just spin the mirror on the stalk. I bought a set of GS mirrors for my RT1200. No such thing as R & L mirrors.
