Bar End Mirrors on an R1200RT?

Postby bdimon » Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:35 pm

Has anybody tried added bar end mirrors to an 2005 (Hexhead) RT? There are some kind of bar end weights on the handle bar ends. I would hate to install a pair just to discover that the throttle no longer twists.

I would like to see what is behind me and not just my hands and elbows. :purdy:

You have room for the ST mirrors. IIRC the GS ones work too.

Yeah but I like bar end mirrors because I never see any part of my hand or arm in them.
