Thread: R100RS mirror question

    some German rules and the mirrors were not very aerodynamic. I gathered that he wasn't super pleased about the mirrors, but this may have been
    one of those management dictates where his suggestions were over-ruled.

    At present I am using the Nick Greear extensions which allow the outer half of the mirrors to be useful in looking behind the bike and yet still allow for
    one to monitor the build-up of bugs on one's shoulders. At speeds above 75 mph the mirrors on the plastic Greear extensions begin to shake quite a
    bit.

    I may switch to the Emgo mirrors. I purchased a set a while back, but decided to stay with the stock mirrors and then gave the Emgo mirrors to a
    friend with a 77 RS. I rode his bike with the Emgo mirrors installed and realized that those mirrors really are a better solution.

    Back in the day

    Back in the day when I first purchased my RS, I rode faster than most of the cars/trucks, Herr. Muth was correct.

    Now in 2019 I can be driving along at 75mph and have a 20 year old girl in a Kia riding my ass or some jerk in a large pick up ready to run me over going 85.

    Trying to ride in any kind of traffic without the ability to see behind is stressfull to say the least. St.

    Changed one so far

    I have changed one mirror so far and took my first ride with it.

    What a difference!

    I can see behind me now and the Emgo mirror vibrates less.

    I will never understand why BMW did not change the mirrors after the first RS run in 77. St.

    Mirror Replacement

    I used Emgo EMGO number 20-35222 (left) and 20-35221 (right) for a Honda CBR 600 RR.

    Removed mirrors from supplied base, substituted a different bolt and used the stock bases.

    All hardware is the same as the stock mirror except the bolt. St.
