1200 TS fairing mounted mirrors
« on: October 10, 2019, 12:12 »
Hi can anyone tell me if there is a match to the fairing mounted mirrors on a TS 1200 or have a pair they dont want.
I am just trying to use the existing holes in the fairing and not drill anymore.

I am struggling a bit on that one Maurice as my memory fades badly, I do remember that they were a useless pair of mirrors and after a couple of years of ownership I had to make handlebars that suited me, which in turn meant shortening the fairing, which then meant losing the mirror mounting points, so no more fairing mounted mirrors since then, the reason that I cant recall what make they where is because I haven't had them for 38 years! what I do recall is that someone discovered that they were, or were very close to, a door mounted mirror on Ford cars, was it the Escort???
not much help, was it.

Maurice,

I have a set of bases that I believe are for a TS.

They used to fit different types mirrors to the TS, but most common were the Vitalonis of the RGS, only with the standard 2 screw fitting of that type (originally a car) mirror.

I am starting to think that series 1 Mirage 1200TS's are actually rare (whhoohooo) and Grant will no doubt chip in with something like, thank God for that.
almost all of the ones that you see are series 2

I don't think I recall the original mirrors as being Vitaloni Californians, I probably would have kept them if they were, maybe I had already smashed one flat, yes I think that was part of it, hairpin at Lydenn race track, I just cannot recall, but they were crap to use, as in you cant over about 80KPH

Those pictured are the ones that came on my 1983 Mirage.  They were so shoddy and poorly designed that they were removed from my bike.  Among other shortcomings, they wouldn't hold a set above around 40 mph.  Really a poor choice of mirror for any Laverda. I went with bar end mirrors and I'm completely satisfied with them. I then put small plastic plugs in the holes that remained in the fairing.

The ones in Grants pic look similar to the GSXR 1000 nock offs I have on the bevel fairing on my 3C. Japanese fairing mirrors tend to be of 2 types. Those that need a vertical surface to mount to and horizontal ones. I had CB 250 RR knockoffs fitted for a while but they are much narrower than the Suzuki ones, made the change after the cop who pulled me up asked why I hadn't seen him up my arse. Mounted through a rubber grommet and they work really well. Spacing of the mounting bolts is 35mm. Forget the name of the company who does them but they do blinkers etc and most bike shops or wreakers have their catalogue
