Jota mirror recomendations
« on: July 23, 2018, 19:13 »
I need a mirror on my Jota.  I like the Halcyon bar end type fitted to my 750 but also want to retain the symetrical look of a pair of lever mounted mirrors.
Any recommendations for a vibration free low syled mirrors?

Check out Oberon bar end mirrors.
Expensive but plenty copies around much cheaper.
Very good and no vibes.

IF YOU CAN GET THE OLD Z MIRRIORS THEY WERE GOOD NOT THE MODERN ONES AS THE GUTS VIBRATE OUT OF THEM

I wanted convex non-chrome not-expensive mirrors which don't vibrate and are functional.
I put these on my '76 3CL and they work well. I'm sure the Lav purists will winge but I have safe vision.

Hi Simon
I put one of a pair of NOS Kawasaki mirrors on my 1200. Works really well. Tried a couple of aftermarket mirrors before this and they were useless.
I still have the LH mirror in a box in the shed so I could get a part number if interested.

I have ordered one of the Oberon bar end mirrors pictured below.
I must say the lens is in the 75 mm dia mirror is in a class of its own.

Bit late now but just in case anyone else is looking. For a normal set of mirrors these are "Posh" brand and although quite expensive coped well with the vibrarion, had a good finish that didn't degrade at the drop of a hat and looked elegant. The glass was pretty big too without being obtrusive.

I bought a couple of sets of these in black and one set in silver. Magazi Mirrors made in Taiwan.Very well made and very simple and not much distortion from vibration on my Guzzi. Unfortunately it looks like the price has gone up ...... I was getting them for $99 Canadian with free shipping. Seems to have gone up about 35% .......

I will look for a photo of them on my bike.
