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:

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**

So the gap issue never resolved?

Nice write up!

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.

I ended up fabbing the Gixxer style mirror on my bike. I like it there was a lot of work involved ranging from wiring to tapping out the hole's in the frame and taking a lot of panels off to gain but worth it. This project was done today and I might do a full write up with pictures if anybody requires it.

I have to say the visibily is the same as stock and I like the postion these mirrors have. Gaining the signals was my game plan.

i used the gixxer style base on mine took some work but look's like factory Oem

sorry for bringing this from the dead. i am contemplating on getting ebay special maybe. i was thinking maybe it is possible to reuse the stock basses? if you break the mount where it moves up and down should not be hard to put it on stock bases

I just bought the same style DaveTroupe has but was wondering if there's anyway to use the stock baseplates instead of the ones that come with it because I hate how they don't sit right on the bike. Thanks

My mirrors with LED's should be arriving his week.

I wired up the stock plug for the flush mounts, now need to wire in a "Y" adapter so I can plug mirrors / flush mounts in. Fun fun. Wiring will be:

Code:
                 ____[plug]----mirrors
Bike---[plug]--<____[plug]----flush mount
Hope that makes sense. That way I can unplug them when removing fairings.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.
