    I bought these mirrors over a year ago and had been meaning to fit them to replace the terrible "carbon" ones the previous owner had left me (see below)

    My first attempt was to drill out an aluminium block to use as a spacer, which worked but was a pig of a job and looked pretty ugly.

    During lockdown I got myself a 3D printer and made about 10 iterations before I settled with these, they're made of PETG, which is hard wearing like ABS but far better suited for outdoor use.

    Fitting only requires 1 hole to be drilled in the fairing for the wires and 1 stepped hole directly into the mirror to allow them to bolt straight into to old mounting location.

    I'm thinking of making complete kits that are ready to bolt in if anyone is interested.

    May not be to everyone's taste but I'm thrilled with the new look. Front.jpg fg LH.jpg fgf RH.jpg

    @Jon1000RR

    Could you also print something to fill the hole left in the fairing by the removal of the indicators?
