How is the visibility of the 08 1krr mirror when mounted on the 07/08 600rr? Can you see the back/side well? Are they fully adjustable? Thanks.

So much stuffs I wanted to buy, so little money...Damn it! :D

ceph. pics would be great,
the problem seems to be in the ability to get the 1krr mirrors to go flush on a 600 RR body.

Visibility is great; especially when compared with the stock 07/08 mirrors; they stick out a bit further than the stock mirrors which helps with visibility quite a bit. As for adjustability; what do you want to know? The mirror itself sits on a swivel joint and moves probably about 20 degrees off of the center axis in either of the four directions. The bases for the mirrors are rigid (unlike stock mirrors) but they can fold back (as shown in Ceph's pic above) like a car mirror and affect the mirror's adjustment.

You're making me want one. :( I've only had my 600RR for a year but yours looks so good that I want the new 1000RR. I hate you Ceph (unless you'll trade me the 1000RR for my 600RR, or buy my 600RR so I can buy an '09 1000RR).

There is a screw in the bottom of the unit which holds the front cover on. Remove the screw, then pop the front cover off. Then, remove the signal housing, pop the light bulb out and replace. It's pretty simple, all you need is a phillips screwdriver.

yeah I noticed that screw and I did take it off...however, the plastic still sticks and i tried to pry it off but it won't budge...I'm afraid I'm going to crack it. Have you removed it before?

Yes. There are 3 or 4 tabs that hold the front cover on and in place. It is a bitch to pop off. What I found worked for me was to pry the bottom of the cover and sort of roll it off. If it cracks/breaks, don't sweat it; that cover is only $10 to replace.

Thanks man. I finally gathered enough nerve to really crack it open. A lot of popping and finally it came apart without any damage. Anyways, replaced the regular bulb in there with a 24 leds bundle bulb. You can see a pic of it installed here. Don't forget to vote :)

Where's my 24 LED bundle for helping you out?

Nice looking bike dude, love the Akropovic exhaust.

Voted. I love the Rizoma Zero-11s, I have 4 of them on my bike. I like the placement of the '07/08 600RR tail light. The '06 is nice to clean up the look a little and make the tail a little more pointed but I like the shortened look when the stock fender is removed. Either way, your bike still looks awesome.

Any remedy for the gap yet? I was thinking of getting some aluminum mirror block off plate and trim it down to fill the gap. Anyone tried this yet?

Hey Everyone,

I was looking at a website called http://www.shspowersports.com for other Honda OEM parts. I was reading this thread simultaneously, and found the Honda 2008 1K mirrors. Now I may be wrong, but all of the parts listed total: $165.10 (for both left and right). Would someone be able to check it out and tell me if I'm crazy. Also, if I'm right, I didn't mean to piss anyone off who paid more.

Thanks,

H

Harry, here's the complete parts list to assemble one pair of 2008 CBR1000RR mirrors. I know this list is complete because I used it to order my set. Compare it with what you have found to make sure it has everything and you should find your answer:

AlmosN8kd,

You're right. I only had the first 7 items on your list when I was looking. How did you know what the remaining parts were since the website only lists the first 7 under "Back Mirror"? Your total cost came out to approximately $276. But then you have S&H. Bringing it up to $300. I'm really contemplating these mirrors, but thanks for your help.

The reason you don't have the remaining parts on your list is because you didn't go to the "Turn Signal" section; the OP mentioned this earlier. I ordered my mirrors piece by piece and assembled them (I was the second person that I know of as the OP was the first). The difference is I copied the list of parts and posted it for others so that you wouldn't have to search. In fact, my original list (in another thread) was slightly inaccurate and the one I posted in this thread (quoted above) was updated to reflect the complete list of parts after I placed a second order for a couple of minor things. Which ever route you go (order the parts or buy them used) these mirrors are ******* awesome; the visibility is amazing due to thier positioning and size and the added feature of a turn signal for the idiots to see you is a bonus. I paid about $300 for my set by buying all the parts.

Cool..but did you guys figured out a way to do away with the gap? I put a piece of hard black foam under there for now...however, I'd like something nicer, and more permanent.

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.
So, if you made something to match and "fill the gap" if you will then you'd get what you're looking for (and I'd be interested in somethign of the sort) but I haven't done anything to adjust for the gap on my setup.

well it's just black foam...nothing like brain surgery. Foam is compressible so it compresses to whatever angle/shape the base is putting down on it. Then I just use a blade to trim around the base to have clean edge. At lease it covers the gap for now. I think something like soft black rubber would be better too. Kinda like a gasket sealing the gap if you will..

So much stuffs I wanted to buy, so little money...Damn it! :D

Yeah, the foam will work for the cosmetic aspect of it all. A mold could be made by taking the shape of the bottom of the '08 mirrors (to make the top of the mold) and the bottom of the '07 mirrors (to make the bottom of the mold) but again it would be a lot of work; however, it would solve the "adapter plate" issue and eliminate the gap. I've contemplated doing it but there doesn't seem to be enough interest in it and it would laso mean I'd have to take my mirrors off of my bike.

Christmas came early today, sort of...


I received my mirrors today, but instead of getting a right and a left, I got two right mirrors. The box even listed the correct part numbers for the left! I'm just going to have to wait a little longer.
