Wanted Tiger 1050 mirrors 2007-2012
on: 27 July, 2019, 12:36:25 PM
As the ad says. Needed. Currently using cheap eBay ones.  Following removing my originals as they were rusty at the stem and managed to crack the metal base of one getting bit off!!

Rust free examples only

Thanks

If you can find some Speed Triple ones of the same vintage, they look the same but are wider and give a better view. I am using mirrors from a 2016 Aprilia Tuono, which are also wider, a little sleeker looking and work great. I have a spare set of Speed Triple mirrors but shipping from the US would be expensive.
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

Thanks gosling1. Yep if you were in the UK I'd love your spare mirrors.

I will keep my eyes peeled for the mirrors you suggest but eBay UK is barren at present.

I'm guessing the Tiger 1050 mirrors are similar width to the Tiger Sport? All the other mirrors are wider eg Stripple, Tex, T800, as well as the Speedy. The speedy mirrors are the lowest, the Tex the highest, Stripple widest. This is just me wandering round a showroom taking rough measurements. They're all a smidgin different so make sure you get a matching pair. I have the Speedy ones, got them off ebay.  One was advertised as a Tex which I was going for, but seeing as it turned out to be off a speedy, I then had to get another speedy. Makes a big difference. I wouldn't bother too much about the stems, if you get them cheap enough, just spray them.

Not particularly close but IMO they do suit the bike..
