Aprilia mirrors on mine. 1/3 of the price of T mirrors and solved the wobbly right mirror.
Note you will need an adapter (or helicoil) for the right mirror.



Morning seangee so did you go for a specific Aprillia model of mirrors ? Thanks .

Is there no suitable Yamaha mirrors, ready made with the correct lh & rh threads.
Also: '16 Tiger 800, '95 Yamaha Serow, '58 Ariel FH.

The same ones are used on a number of models, Aprilias and otherwise (the BMW R9T has the same), and also a few mopeds.
Search for Aprilia Shiver mirrors because there is only one type on that bike. Lots of people say they have Tuono mirrors, but there are so many different variants that's a rabbit hole.

I got mine from Fowlers.

this is becoming a confusing thread.  Can someone summarize what mirrors fit without adaptors or helcoils and do they actually work when fitted.
