Szazbo can make more but he needs a minimum of 5 to do a run.

Anyone else need adapters?

Ok, I'll tell him we have four people and I guess I'll just keep the extra set.

For those interested, I've sent Szazbo an email stating that we have 4 people who want them. I'll wait for instructions on payment. He will probably want to be paid direct. If we can't find a fifth person, I'll just take two, I guess.

I'll keep you posted on his response and payment instructions.

S1000 mirror adapters

Hi guys, I guess I am going back to the milling machine! A little catch up in things in the S1000 mirror world. A number of years ago I was selling most of what I made to Sandbar composites and he was reselling them on his website. Then Nigel copied what I was making thinking it would save him some money. I ended up selling all that I had left to Nigel as he had the corner on the market. I didn't design and make these to actually make a profit, just because I didn't like the OEM mirrors on my HP2 and locally in California a few people saw them and next thing I made over 80 sets. A few years ago I had to let my bike go and stopped visiting here and didn't realize that Sandbar was no more. I have had more than a few inquiries to see if they were still available in the last year and it wasn't worth the hassle. Thanks to Madmike they are back on the board.
So the process to make some more will take a little time to get everything setup again and churning out some pieces, then I will send them to anodizing and round up the hardware, make some backing plates etc. So please be a little patient. No money is required from anyone upfront. If you wish to have a complete set including mirrors, I can source the mirrors from the local dealer and send you a complete bolt on set in the event you are not handy. I will post some updates once things are rolling and I can get a time estimate. No one needs to pay until they are completed and ready to ship. Sound fair?

So, tired of looking at my shoulders, I made my own adapters based on what an inmate did on ADV rider.

I still prefer these adapters when they are available, but meanwhile I can ride and see behind me.

Started with a set of Hornig RR mirror extensions



Some SS hardware from Lowes



Some SS washers as a backplate (painted black)



Drilled and taped to have the new screws long enough to hold the rear together



Fit to bike. The front OEM screw is long enough to catch on that threaded piece. The piece did have to be trimmed down a bit.



Complete

Nice Mike;
Does this still give you a break away for the mirrors??
Could you please make your pictures bigger?

Cheers

Ill try to make them bigger. Not sure why they loaded so big.

As far a break away, they are OEM mirrors mounted in an (almost) OEM way. I assuming that whatever breakaway features are built into the mirror are still functional.

I think I get it now........you used unmodified S1000RR mirrors on a homemade perch. Stock RR mirrors do have a breakaway, so nice job, but Szabo's mount will make them look a little more finished. I'm trying to say that in a way that doesn't criticize, but I probably failed at that.

I tried so many different combinations to get mirrors that work;

Bar ends were so far out of the sight line.
Extenders on stock mirrors let me look at my shoulders instead of my elbows.
Then helped Szabo sort out the mounting system by being a test dummy and giving feedback until he sorted the mounts out.

Hopefully he will get new owners mounts soon.

Cheers

Yes, stock RR mirrors but on a modified Hornig mirror extenders for the RR (so not exactly home made as the extenders were purchased and then modified to get the second set of holes in the right place).

Yes, I agree, Szabo's system is much better. However, with the OEM mirrors you may as well just take them off as that is what they are good for. I will still purchase Szabo's if and when they come out. But for now, I'm running with this setup for practicality/safety reasons.

Alright, it has been a while but I finally mounted my adapters.

How do you get the RR dust boots to sit correctly?

Mike, from memory you will need to drill through the rubber gasket to have new holes in the correct place. Once fitted the gasket is not totally flush with the bodywork as the bodywork is slightly curved. So a gap is clearly visible. Can you post a photo and we can say if its as it should be?
It has been commented on before on Pelican and its unfortunate I guess , but it’s splitting hairs really as now you can see behind you!
Did you exercise the ‘break out’ before fitting them? It was recommended on the instructions from Sandbar due to the bodywork of the HP2 being not so strong as the S1000RR.
