Looking for Gen 2 LH Mirror

Does anyone have a left hand mirror (or both mirrors) that they are willing to sell? Broke mine when I dropped the bike.

Go with aftermarket mirrors. They work perfectly, look fine and curiously enough, they don't break any better or worse than the Original Equipment Mirrors do if/when you drop the bike.

Here's a link to a set on eBay that I use. $16.95 for two of them with free shipping. If you shop around they can be had for 1 or 2 dollars less. You'll be hard pressed to simply cover the shipping cost at $16.95 if you try and assuming you find them from a private party.

Original Equipment Mirrors P/N 56001-1204 List for $38.20 each. At discount on-line retailers they go for a bit less. $27.52 via PartZilla as one example. 56001-1204 MIRROR-ASSY

Excellent advice above!

Also, TPI has 5-1/4" rectangular mirrors for about twice the price mentioned in the previous post (sold separately, IIRC). Pay more for "dampers," reducing vibration (unsure of compatibility with Generation 2).

Then, if you want the survivability of FOLDING mirrors (looking somewhat OEM), look for Ken Sean mirrors . . . ridiculously affordable, too!

I'm willing to consider aftermarket mirrors, but dampers are a necessity. Most of the above info relates to Gen1 (partzilla link, etc.)

Can anybody suggest a good set of mirrors with dampers for Gen 2?
