Classic Mirror Problems


Most of the Problems with the Classic Mirrors involve either Buffeting, Vibration or if you have an ST, clashing with the Fairing. As the Problem is not isolated to the MIRRORS, refer also the Classic Buffeting FAQ. Solutions thus far are 1150GS Mirrors, Ducati Monster Mirrors and KTM Mirrors. The F650GS Mirrors can NOT be easily put on the Classic, and why you would want them anyway, with their reputation for folding back, is anyone's guess.
