HP2 mirrors

Thanks guys for the responses and PM's I have ordered several sets of mirrors and the bracket pieces are starting to fall from the mill. As soon as they are assembled and ready, I will respond to the PM's hopefully by early next week.

Mirror Update

I have recieved a lot of PM's and the mill is running making parts. I am going to add backing plates for the fairing and new mounting crews after my testing. The new mirrors have more leverage being longer so it seems prudent to add stiffness. After testing with the backing plates there was less fairing vibration.I was very happy with the mirrors performance with the angles and stiffness. Mirror vibration is less than the original mirrors. I have ordered some new mirrors for those who want them complete. Should be able to ship some parts next week. Cost wise I am thinking $150 + shipping for the mirror brackets, backing plates, and all the hardware and instructions. For those who want completed assemblies, $150 brackets and $170 for 2 new mirrors converted ready to bolt on.

HP2 Mirror Update 07/27

Ok here is the latest update. Finished 19 sets today (would have been 20 but broke a tap) 3 sets of mirrors have arrived and several more on order. Used a tumbled finish but have decided to clear anodize them. This will be completed by the end of next week. This was because I am anticipating some environments will have more humidity and these are under a rubber boot. Probably not necessary but can't hurt. Another production run next week.
I have recieved a bunch of PM's from interested people. I think that the best way to purchase these would be to send me an email to eric.axford@gmail.com and let me know if you want the bracket kit, or the complete mirror/bracket assembly. Cost is $150 for the brackets, hardware and backing plate and add another $170 if you want mirrors and I will do the conversion. Shipping in the US will be around $20 Priority Mail Flat Rate Box or a little less.
Out of the US shipping is probably about $35 via Priority Mail. If shipping costs are less than I will refund the difference.
Payment can take place through Paypal. Email me with any questions. Again I will be shipping the 1st batch next weekend.

Rumor has it that the first set is going to a major modder!

HP2 Sport Mirror Update

I have shipped the 1st batch of brackets and mirrors. I still have some of you on the list and expect the next batch to completed by the middle of next week. Sandbar will have his supply of brackets, so if you are in Europe it would be better to purchase from him.
I have posted an installation tutorial if you just purchased the brackets. and it is here:

Same 'greenery', but that callbox doesn't look familiar.
