Is the issue that the prilly ones are handed and the trumpet base threads are not. So need a converter to fit the prilly r/h mirror. ok but be a tad higher than tutha. Done similar on my Yam.

The Aprilia mirrors are sold as left and right because of the asymmetrical mirror heads. The base threads are the same, right and left. Conventional righty tighty, lefty loosey threads. :002:
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

Makes sense, if ya hit owt, it unscrews instead of breaking.

Gotcha now, that's when they started fitting them cheap mirrors that vibrate. Instead of the good ones that are too short.  Or are the cheap vibey ones too short anorl? Ha, likely double trouble.

Yeh the originals on my 2016 TS whilst they look good are absolutely rubbish theY vibrate like crazy once passed certain speeds and as I mentioned in my OP flop backwards and or downwards when cracking on . Think I will go with the Highsiders, found some on the net on a German supplier site at reasonable price .

Would you mind putting a link to where the deal you found for the Highsiders is please Weegiboy?

As I'm wanting to upgrade the mirrors on my 2016 model at some point soon as well. 🙄
