Oh yeh, I didnt have to cut the fairing like described, I only had to drill the whole in the middle for the wire. But the fairing stay, thats a whole different ball game. Ill post some pics when I get a chance...

Still need to figure out a seal for the gap though. Thats gonna bug me.

I completed my mirror install today. I did a bit more cutting of the upper cowl and the upper stay than the OP did; however, despite my efforts the gap remains. Although, my mirrors sit lower than the OP's do but the gap is still noticible. The only way to eliminate the gap is to either go with the GSX-R mirrors using the stock bases, remold the upper cowl with some bondo and body work to match the shape of the '08 1kRR mirror bases (probably the best mothod but quite a bit of work), or swap the bases from the stock mirrors onto the '08 1kRR mirrors (similar to what is done with the GSX-R mirrors) but I think this method would look tacky in the end. Anyhow, I'm still very satisfied with the look and finish of the new mirrors and there is definitely a noticble increase in visibility with the '08 1kRR mirrors.

For those interested in buying the mirrors brand new, here is the completed parts listing (some minor changes from my original posting in the other thread):

If you wanted to ship your bike all the way out to AL to have some mirrors put on then I'd do it for you but I'm sure you can find someone in SoCal who could easily assist you at doing this.

hey to fix the gap why dont you take like some mirror block off plates or plate and drill bolt holes into as a make shift washer or something like that... maybe a piece of plastic that you can drill and sand to size? just an idea......

No, it won't work as the difference is in the angles. You'd have to mill out the block off plate to match the base on the '08 mirrors. The base on the stock '07 mirrors are very simple and flat where as the '08 mirrors are at an angle and have other portions of the mirror base protruding from the normal angled base; you can kinda see it in this pic:

Couldn't you just mill a spacer then to adjust for the concave use a dense foam to fill in the gap?

It's not a solid piece, but the foam would fill the gap perfectly and look damn near stock.

The gap is so thin and barely seen, only form the right angle. No one ever notices, or even looks. Got the electrical taped up good so no problems with a little water. I went through a little rain already and had 0 problem. I didnt even have to modify my fairing beyond drilling the whole in the middle for the wire. Only had to modify the fairing slighlty, a little different then described but they are solid.

It is a bit more complicated than that. Simply put, the 08 bases are larger and at an angle where as the 07 bases are flat. Now, a spacer could be made to match the two but it'd be quite a bit of work. I, milled out my faring and upper faring stay a bit more than the OP to try to get things as flush as possible but I still have a small gap. Here's a few pics:

This are the new 08 1krr mirrors. The local honda dealership wanted $400 of the set. I ordered mine from cheapcycleparts.com for $300. You have to order all the parts and then put them together which is a pain.
I went to that website and they only have 2005 and older
where do i find 08 stuff?

They're updating thier page; they have the 2006 listed now so with some time the 2008 should be up eventually. Anyhow, if you look up a few posts from yours I have listed all of the parts and part numbers along with quantity and price needed to purchase a complete set of '08 1000RR mirrors. You can call them (or any other dealer) and order everything you need. Or, you can go to the quick order page (http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/QuickOrder.aspx), plug in the part numbers and quantities I have listed above and order what you need/want.

I saw one set when I was looking; I just gave up and bought all of the parts new and assembled them. However, the longer you wait, the more of them that will be wrecked or converted to race bikes and that will result in more mirrors on the market.

Since randomwalk101 bumped the thread, I took a look at the pictures I posted some time ago and realized that they don't quite cover the inevitable gap from the '08 1kRR mirror install so I took some new ones to show how unless some special molding is done, the gap will never go away:

Looking at the mirror from the riding position/behind the bike:


3/4 rear angle:

Zoomed out slightly, from the side:


I hope these are of some use to somebody.
