    I put maxiview on my GS and love them

    On the RT I added these mirrors ( left 51167653773 right 51167653774 (BMW K1200RS 2000-20004) and they worked really well for me

    Mirrors

    2005 to 2007 R1200St mirrors look good and have a nice shape, I use them on my GS because they are 1 inch wider.

It appears that I could add a pair of traditional mirrors in the existing holes near the clutch and brake levers. 10 mm diameter I think. I have an aftermarket Z Technik V-Stream windscreen. Any clearance issues? What's the best bang for my buck? I heard rumors that older K bike mirrors might work. Thanks. John
    I just posted the RS mirrors in BMW parts. They are brand new. Just something about 4 mirrors that drives me crazy. Call me.

    For me, the KRS mirrors are perfect on my 2007 RT. They definitely increase the rear view capability. I have them pointed more up/out and the stock mirrors more down/in, so i can see the max amount.

    Plus...they make a convenient helmet stand
