12 Mar 2010 KTM OEM Folding Mirror on the WR
Last weekend I had a small “get off” when, what I thought was a small tree, didn’t move out of my way trying to clear through the high-side of a mud pit! It was just enough to knock me off balance and the slippery mud caused me to lay the bike over and the stock mirror took the brunt. The mirror didn’t break, it just jostled loose and had to be forcefully tightened back up for the rest of the day.
This led me to find a folding mirror! I found another WR rider who got these KTM OEM Folding mirror and it mounted right up to the stock perch. His review was good visibility with easy folding to quickly get it out of the way on trails. For the price, I thought why not! $30 shipped from Henri @ Motor-Science. I, also, chose to go with the 280mm over the 243mm, to make sure the mirror would get beyond my elbow since I plan on only running one mirror. Here’s the link to purchase the KTM OEM Folding Mirror. I should also add, shipping was super fast!!! I ordered on March 10 and it was at my house on March 12!
So far I think I’m going to like this mirror. The only issue I see is finding the perfect adjustment between the upright position and the folded position. I think I’ll carry a wrench on the first few rides to get it dialed in. If any other issues arise I’ll be sure to post up….
