  • WTF? Fawkin mirrors

    ok so im cleaning my bike today ive kinda neglected doing that the last few weeks weathers been crappy so any day that was decent i rather ride then clean.. anyway i notice both my mirrors are flaking left side worse then the right but the left will probably be there soon, anyone else had this problem? guess its time for aftermarket ones. Anyone know of any with built in blinkers that actually look nice?

    You by the ocean Looks to me like the alum is gettin attacked by something. Wait, are the stock mirrors aluminum I would say it's some type of corrosion. Two dissimilar metals and an electrolyte, causes corrosion. That would be my guess from the picture.

    Heck could just be rock chips and crappy paint. The factory painter could have had a hang over that day.
    Don't know how it works? Take it apart and find out!

    Here's how it sounds.

        well I feel a little better knowing im not the only one.. Wish the aftermarket mirror selection was better.. thinking maybe ill go with bar end mirrors but i don't know if it'll look right on a full faired bike

          Um, take them off, sand them a bit so they are smooth again, wet sand the rest so the paint is dull, and throw a couple coats of paint on them. Or get Kawi mirrors.

            toss them and get some decent looking mirrors. Many OEM from other bikes will bolt on and look about 10 years newer in design than what came stock on the TLS and TLR

                  replacement mirrors

                  I broke one on a low-side, replaced both with EMGO mirrors that were for a GSXR 750 (I think). Cheap, plastic, but functional, and doesn't look worse than the scuffed fairing.

                            Looks like corrosion or just the acid from bug guts.....
