    Talking Quick-Scan mirror experience?

    Has anyone tried the Quick-Scan mirrors from SAENG/TA corp on a R1200RT?

    I tried searching the previous posts and only found references to MultiVex and mirrors off a K1200RS. I bought the MultiVex and did not feel comfortable with the diminished normal field of view required to get the convex effect.

    I understand from other post regarding the K1200RS mirrors that they obscure the RT's original mirrors when installed. I don't mind the RT mirrors and only want to augment them. I've seen the inexpensive stick-on convex mirrors but really liked the set-up on the LT shown at link:

    Do you think the RT's small wings would support these? They also have the same mirror on stalks that are purported to fit in the unused mirror holes on the RT.

    I apologize if this has been addressed in previous threads but I made an honest effort to find it and came up blank. Your help is truly appreciated.

    I use the inexpensive stick-on convex mirrors and find they work well. I checked out the picture on the LT and they look good. You can add extra mirrors off the R-RS on the RT or some other type in the holes located on the RT controls or if you don't care about cost the SAENG should do the job. Guess it depends on what you want. Good luck.

    I got them on a '94LT. Mounted then higher up in my line of sight but I don't usually run with the windshield up as high as in these pictures.





    Although larger than those little stick ons things have to be pretty close to make out what they are. Great for merging traffic and multiple lanes to keep track of your blind spots.

    The K12S mirrors don't block the originals at all on a R12RT, the stock mirrors are way below the sight line. That's my view anyways.

    I would be concerned with mounting them like the LT which has an very robust windshield...the early model 12RT's brackets don't like any added stress and have broken with even larger than stock windshields. I don't know if they are any strongernow but don't hear the reports like we did at first. I do run a small convex on the stock mirrors, but rarely look down anymore. My only complaint was that they cause rain to drip directly on your gloves , just a small annoyance at times.

    Thanks for the info & Bumping this message again

    I appreciate the input. I'm going to go with a combination of cheap stick on convex mirrors on the original mirrors and a pair of the K12RS mirrors on the unused mirror holes in the RT's hand controls. My wife will finally be able to see whats behind us, something that's bothered her since we got the RT.

    Ditto what Steve said, I have the exact same setup on my RT. I love them. I never use the original mirros anymore. There are numerous times when I can see a car behind me in both the K12S mirrors, but cannot see it in either of the original RT mirrors. Highly recommended.
