Thanks. Those might be the ones form me.
I like CRG.
Here is a very poor picture of my CRG buts its the only one I can find. You can mount the mirror above or below the bar! They also fold for parking or if they get hit. Everyone I know who bought them is impressed with the quality!
Great Mirrors Trev....can I ask what model of rizoma mirrors they are, n which adaptors please ?
Rizoma Handlebar Mount Mirror Adapters SKU BS715B
Rizoma Radial Naked Mirror Color Black/Gold BS130BG
The adapters are 8mm and the package included both "left handed and right handed thread" bolts. this is correct for my 2015 Sport but I understand some 961's have other configurations.
If anyone has info on what model(s) Rizoma levers and grips fit please let me know.
Many thanks for the quick reply Trev.
Those mirrors look fantastic!!! I currently have a pair of Rizoma bar ends, but they are rather plain looking and don't provide a good view of the road behind. I am going to change to those.
Do you need any special mounting hardware, or do they screw directly into the threaded openings on the fluid reservoirs, where the stock mirrors were located?
Just replaced the standard mirrors with the parts listed above which is fine for my 2015 sport. Understand some models are not 8mm threads.
I missed the post above where you gave the part numbers.
What's the deal with the various universal Rizoma mirror models? Will all of them fit the 961 with the adapter listed here?
Thanks in advance!
You'll have to call Rizoma directly. The probably do fit, but I can't be sure.I have the same mirrors that the original poster has. They are awesome. No glare even in direct sunlight. Great viz at night too. Nice and tight. They don't loosen up at 100 mph like the stock ones kept doing. Calling them is no easy task. Its like one dude works there.
I'm sure. I have sent them an e-mail, but no response yet.
In the mean time I am trying to make sense of their cross-reference. It appears that the mirrors that fit several Ducati models might also fit the 961? I don't want to place an order on a guess. It would be fairly simple if I just ordered the model you guys are talking about here. But there are so many choices!
Most of them pretty much look like the same mount. Just different shapes and finishes. These are awesome aesthetically because the finish on the stem is just like the Ohlins, and the pattern on the back simulates carbon fiber to sort of match the front fender and any other cf bits you might have. Best of luck. Sure wish these accessory companies will start recognizing Norton and listing "bike specific" items. Can't wait for some luggage pieces to come out other than tank bags. I hate tank bags!!
Okay, I figured it based on the cross-reference. I did call the vendor (Motivation Accessories) to verify what I found and he reluctantly agreed. The BS715 adapter works with most of the universal mirrors except the Circuit series (which is the one I wanted). However, I saw that the Circuit 744 model does accept the BS715 adapter. :idea: So I placed my order for the left side mirror along with 2 adapters in case I find it necessary to order the right side mirror later on. Phew!
Installing them is a little bit of a pain (well, for mirrors at least) compared to the stock ones. So many adjusting points, but oh so worth it.
I got my single mirror along with 2 adapters recently. I had no problem swapping out the left side stock mirror with the new Rizoma model. Looks very sleek! Unfortunately, when I tried to remove the right side stock mirror I had a very difficult time loosening the screw. In fact, I could not turn it at all until I used a pipe on the end of my wrench. But when it finally seemed to be unscrewing what actually happened was the threaded end snapped off! :shock: WTF!! How could the guys in the factory or the guys at MCC have tightened it that much?!
In the end I accomplished what I wanted. Except now I have no option for a 2nd mirror. Well, it does save me another $150 for a while. :roll:
Not familiar with them but could it have been a reverse thread? Sometimes they do that with mirrors so the wind doesn't make them unscrew. Can it be repaired?
Yes and Yes , It is reverse and it can be repaired. We brought that up on the forum a while back . You can do a search search. The new models went to a smaller 8 mm thread as well . You should be able to get that broken stud out with a small punch and tap it around the correct way . Or if your worried about it , bring the casting to a local machine shop to do an easy out.
