🤔 I will need to ask before I decide buy them .
The man hunched over his motorcycle can focus only on the present... he is caught in a fragment of time cut off from both the past and the future... he has no fear, because the source of fear is in the future, and a person freed of the future has nothing to fear.

I had a set of  Highsider mirrors on my 2017 Sport https://www.nr1motor.nl/highsider-universal-mirror-sempion.html but currently not available. Must still have those lying around somewhere.


Morning just checking these are a straight swap out no need for helicoils or other kinds of jiggery pokery so to speak ? Thanks .

Morning just received an email from that distributor saying they are standard right hand thread and will be available from the 18/09/20 hope this helps .

Then you will need an adaptor. Easy to find but the one I bought had a bubble in the cast and snapped off when I tightened it. Since I had to drill it out anyway I just used a RH helicoil.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

You end up with one a tad higher than the other then, like mine on my Yam.
