    Secondary Mirrors R1150RT

    Anyone know what accessory mirrors I can buy for my 2004 R1150RT?

    I have the old ones from my R1150R, and they fit loosely into the control
    shifters, but, what I'm lacking the spacer and washer and bolt, or fit collar of some type.

    I was about to contact A&S cycles to look into parts, but, thought I'd
    start here first.

    Was told that the oval K1200RS mirrors might do the trick.

    Any one have any success?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Take a look at www.mklsportster.com/r1150rtchronicles.htm . Go down the dates until you get to April 8, 2007 and you will see a topic on using K1200GT mirrors for what you are wanting to do. There is also a picture. Hope this helps.

    I have also heard that oilhead GS mirrors fit RTs just fine. I don't think they need the sleeves that guy used with the 1200 mirrors. Seems like a lot of parts and bother. I mean, 5 sleeves? Just call any dealer to make sure the GS mirrors fit your RT and then check eBay etc.

    re Secondary Mirrors R1150RT

    K1200RS mirrors best and easiest, IMHO. Just need to grind off some of the left side's base so the fast throttle lever can still go up. Here's how they look from the front:

    Closeup from rider's left side. Now I can see over camping gear when tied onto rear seat.

    Better visibility, but the style wasn't just there.
