Thanks for the write up. I intend to do this as well. Which eBay seller is this from?

Also, how is visibility from the side? I may skip the flush mounts altogether and simply remove the stock signals from the fairings.

Finally, when you did the wiring did you just cut the stock connector from the stock signal and cut and twist the wires? Any soldering?

Sorry for the noob questions, I know nothing about lighting mods.

Thanks for your help!!
Visibility from the side is not so great during the day. The light is only seen well from the front, sorry to disappoint. If you skip flush mounts your going to have a hole in the fairing you might as well buy them the proton ones (i have them) are only like 40 dollars. Increases viability which increases safety.

I cut the connectors off at both ends and wired everything together, because there were now two signal wires 1 from the mirror and 1 from the flush mount. So I couldn't cut the connector off and re-use it. I did not solder them, i just twisted them bitches up and used some electrical tape. lol.

I'm not sure which ebay user sold me the items, however I found them by simply searching for 600rr mirrors. I'm sure you will find them with a similar search. You could also consider GSXR Mirrors as well?

I like these mirrors the best (so far) because they don't force you to mod the fairing stay (and the fairing that much for that matter). It's the easiest to switch back to stock. Unfortunately the size of the base for these is HUGE and doesn't sit flush, so I'm gonna keep waiting and hope that someone comes out with one specifically for the 600rr.

A note about the bolts... why couldn't you reuse the stock bolts? They are at least black and should be the right length, at least then you wouldn't see the huge long silver bolts under the hood. Just my .02 cents.
The head of the stock bolt is to big (diameter) to fit into the space allowed by the mirrors, So I used a skinny blot with a washer on the top and a bolt on the other side. Then I just used a wire cutter to cut the bolts to my desired length.

You could always try to order black bolts or paint bolts black if you really wanted too.

I know I am kinda bringing a thread back from the dead here (I figured it was better than starting a new one on the same topic). Anyhow, the knuckles in my stock mirrors are cracked due to my move from WA to AL (stupid movers) and it has gotten to the point that I have to be very careful when adjusting them otherwise I'm afraid that they'll break off in my hand (I do minor adjustments all of the time due to changing my riding stance here and there). So, I was considering getting some new mirrors and possibly ones with integrated turn signals (such as the ones you have, I have also seen them on eBay) but I was really kinda wanting ones that could be used as running lights as well for some increased visibility since I Rizoma Zero-11s on the sides. Do you know of any aftermarket mirrors which have a running light in them as well? Do you know if the '08 1000RR mirrors will bolt up to the '07 600RR stock mount? I'd rather not go with the GSX-R mirrors as I like the look of the '08 1000RR mirrors better but I'm open to options. I don't have a problem using the mirros like you have (I don't really like the alternative on eBay that looks like stock mirrors with 3 LEDs on the front side); I just thought I'd ask around to see if there were any other options that I hadn't found.

My mirrors are not wired to have a running light, this didn't matter to me because my flush mounts don't have a running light either.

1kRR Mirrors or GSXR Mirrors are probably the only things you are going to find that have a running light. Stock to stock 1KRR mirrors DO NOT fit with the same bolts. However, you can drill the holes out making them bigger and use different bolt/nut to hold them in. There is a thread on here some where a guy actually put them on his 600RR7. That would be the best place to look to find info about using those mirrors. Best of luck with your mod.

The guy you're referring to put 1kRR mirrors on his bike or the GSX-R mirrors on? I know I've seen a 600RR on this forum with the GSX-R mirrors but not the 1kRR mirrors (the searches I did didn't pull up much). I'll see what I can dig up on the GSX-R mirror install; do you know if they bolt on in the stock location or need modification as well? I know that the mirrors you chose would go great on my bike since I have the gloss black so if I don't go with the GSX-R or 1kRR mirrors, I'll def go with the ones you did.

I know I don't need running lights in the front but I wouldn't mind having them if I could get them so I'd like to see if I could run them down as a possiblity for increased visibility (drivers here in AL are worse than what I experienced riding in WA) and as far as I'm concerned, the more lights the better.

Edit: I found the thread showing install of 1kRR mirrors onto an 07/08 600RR.

Well the wife managed to break one of my mirrors off and I saw these up on ebay and was wondering if anyone has tried them out. To me they look to be a stock mirror with led's, also a direct bolt on and then run the wiring?

I have not personally used them; however, when I was searching for the same type of item I heard lots of negative reviews about the mirror quality being poor (as in the reflection portion of the mirror was garbage). That is not to say that these are the same but it is something to consider.

Thanks,

What did you end up going with then?

where did you buy them at? And new or used? Do you also have a gap between your fairing and the base plate?

I bought all the parts online and put them together. All of the information on the parts, install, pics, differences, and "the gap" are on this thread:

If you haven't seen it yet, it is a long read, but it is worth your time.

Thanks for helping a noob out...

I cant decide what I am going to do yet...might just keep it simple with those ebay mirrors and do some slick wiring. I wonder if they also have the running light capabilities, or does that just depend on how you wire it?

The wiring in the pics of the ebay item look like A**:bootyshak

So the gap issue never resolved?

Nice write up!

I didn't do the write-up; I just piggy backed on the guy who did and then input my changes after I copied and altered the write-up.

The gap issue is not resolved; it will not go away on an 07/08 bike as the shape of the mirror base and the shape of the upper faring prevent it from going away. However, a few have mentioned some things they are going to try to eliminate the gap (in that thread) so it really is just a matter of time before it is gone.
