standard mirrors
« on: 27 June, 2017, 11:01:15 AM »
i have found the standard mirrors on my mk2 next to useless,unless you like looking at your own arms and shoulders!Anyway ,somewhere on here i read that cb1300 mirrors are a lot better.my wife runs a cb1300sa so it was easy to compare and yes,the cb1300 mirror arms are longer,so the wife bought me a pair for my birthday.just fitted them and what a difference,measured them and overall they are two and a quarter inches wider(measuring from edge of screen to inside edge of mirror case)i can actually see behind now!!!great upgrade.

Put this phrase:
HONDA CBF1000 S 06-14 For side Mirrors Extenders Riser Adaptor
in ebay search. I have those on Mk1 and are the least to make the mirrors effective again imho.



I dunno of the cb1300 mirrors will reach further out, but the extenders make it wide enough already for easy filtering.

I am in 100% agreement with fitting the mirrors from a cb1300. I bought a cheap aftermarket copy from ebay last year for about £20 pounds the pair. Have had no issues, they fitted straight on and they did improve on rear vision.

Did the same. Worked like a charm, and looks like OEM.

Having read this thread I decided to buy some CB 1300 mirrors and they are great, I did find that the mounts mine came with were the wrong angle so I had to use my existing set. Otherwise they are brilliant and seem to reduce my blind spot area slightly as well.

 :028: Nice one spin.


(Interesting to note there's over a thousand views of this thread. I wonder how many people made use of it and said nothing). :084:
