    Just make sure that he includes a reverse threaded nut and bolt on one side.

    Having the right mirror go floppy at 80MPH is a bit disconcerting and inless youer carrying an 10mm Socket wrench in your tank bag, you're kinda screwed.

    Here's what I did on my RS:
    You can buy OEM mirror mounts (called "mirror base") for not much $.
    46 63 1 236 129 MIRROR BASE LEFT - BLACK $8.98
    46 63 1 236 130 MIRROR BASE RIGHT - $8.98
    I drilled out the hole that the original mirror bolted into. I then took an afteremarket stalk mounted mirror of decent quality and bolted it to the OEM mirror mount. A bit of grinding with the dremel and it looked and worked very well. I unbolted the originals (mounts and mirrors) and put them in a box, so I could go back to stock if all I want to see is my elbows.

    With the help of my brother-in-law I made mirror mounts for stalked Rizoma mirrors.

    It was easy, take a block of aluminum and remove all the material that is not mirror mount.

    bike gone

    Sorry bike has been sold and is long gone. But really it was cheap and easy, and totally returnable to stock if desired.
