What to do with a broken mirror ?
Permalink  
 


 

Here's all the parts with the new fisheye mirror and reinforcing rod

Notice I increased the bend on the screw thread end to lower the mirror when installed

 

Here's the parts and the cut down mirror arm with an 80mm section removed

 

Here it is with the sleeve fitted with a 3mm gap to increase weld penetration

 All Welded Up

 

 

Cleaned Up Ready to Go

 

Wrap a bit of black vinyl around it and ready to go, nicely protected by the bark Busters, out of the way

and still has good rear vision

 

I'll see how it goes, and I may do the other side as well

I can see the pics and a nice little project it was wink

Never seen a fisheye mirror like that so will do a bit of Googling to see if we can get 'em in the UK.

I always use a RH mirror on my trail bikes to (a) make sure that I still have a rider following me when out trail riding and (b) to make sure that I know who is behind me when on the tarmac roads!

looks great and would be much better than a flat mirror (even if possibly illegal in some places).

so if I hit my mirror glass with a hammer, pulled out the shards, and bought a 75mm convex mirror,
are you saying I could just push it into the old plastic back, and it would be retained by the original claws?

and what's with the black vinyl? - "window" dressing, protection or added glass retainer?

yep, can see all the pics, "aggressive caching" is not denying me.

I glued mine in with some clear silicon, the mirrors with the black rim around the outside are a perfect fit

The black vinyl is on the metal arm and is to stop it rusting until I paint it or something

I'll sand it down some more with a belt sander to get the weld marks first I think
