    more mirror for a RT

    When my rt is loaded I especially would like more rear view mirrors. I'm thinking of this one screwed to the plastic fairing from underneath to extend beyond the almost useless orginals.

    What year? Wunderlich offers new clutch and brake brackets with extensions for mirrors. http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot...C/3272971.html. These only work for the 2014s. There might be others available for different years.

    Some people put GS mirrors on. They mount to the handlebars and come up and to the outside, on either side of the windscreen.

    I have those on mine with additional mirrors adjusted to complement the OE mirrors so to give me a wider field of view.

    RT Mirrors

    I have a 2009 RT and found that I couldn't see anything behind me when I was fully loaded with gear for touring. I solved the problem by installing
    K1200RS mirrors which screwed in perfectly to mounting holes by the clutch and brake levers. If you have the holes for this on your RT you are all set. I added blind spot mirrors to the upper corner of these and they work great. Here is a link for the mirrors:

    Don't forget to order the nuts and the washers for these if you choose this route. Oddly enough,
    they are sold separately.

    Good luck.

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    Plus 1 on the K1200RS mirrors. I have had them on my 2007 RT since new. They fit perfectly and work great.
