mirror risers/ extenders

Recommended Posts

Can someone please confirm (or not) that the mirror mounts on the our bikes have a 10mm thread.   And I recall from earlier installs of these  that one is reverse-threaded - which one, please?   I've fitted more than one pair of these on earlier Tracers and want to do so again  but need the info before ordering.   My memory is not too good these days!

TIA...

I don't think it is a 10mm thread. I haven't had mine off yet, but the diameter of the stalks suggests it isn't going to be a 10mm thread. 

I didn't know Yamaha did the reverse thread mirror thing. But, if they do, it'll be the right one.

Can't confirm 10mm thread without measuring but a 10mm socket fits the bolt and the left mirror has a right hand thread, the right mirror a left-hand thread!

If it has a 10mm socket, clearly it isn't a 10mm thread.

@wordsmith - the ones pictured look exactly like a Chinese knock-off of the SW Motech mirror extenders.  All of the standard Yamaha models (FZ/FJ/XSR/MT/Tracer) listed on the SW Motech website are listed with M10 hardware in the install instructions.

Thanks, guys.   I have ordered what I believe to be the right ones.   The mirror-stems on the GT are rather longer than on the Gen1 Tracers, and certainly have improved rearward vision somewhat, but having had these risers/ extenders on other bikes I very much like the even greater/ wider spread of vision that they give.   Will post comments/ pix in due course.

Apologies I'm an idiot don't know why I said 10mm socket, without looking maybe 14mm but pretty sure 10mm bolt!

 I have just checked and Evotech supply a flanged bolt, 10mm bolt with a 10mm head.

 Our mirror extenders leave a clean stock look while extending the mirrors...

 

Nice low cost fix - just ordered a pair - thanks!

Don't want to start a 'mine is better than yours', but I like the fact that the ones I have on order, and have used several times in the past, move the OE mirror stems outboard a little as well as raising the stems.   Anyone here younger than about 50 won't recall the Berlei bra ads of the past (or, indeed, what a 'bra' is), but these items 'lift and separate' as the ad said, giving, IMHO, the best of both worlds.   Cheap, too, at only AUD$19.88, and from past experience beautifully made and powder-coated.

With the mirrors coming out at an aprox 45 degree angle, either of the two would give much the same result, I would think.

One benefit with the ones you are getting, you would be able to raise the mirrors and move them forward, rather than increasing overall width of the bike.
