Well, I got them today and when installing the left side, when I couldn't get he mirror out of the assembly, I took my hands away and the mirror dropped. Yes, it's cracked.

Anyone know where to get a left mirror without having to buy the entire mirror assembly?

Lens covers look good and fit perfectly.

Rider14,

You may have more luck and spend less if you take your mirror to a window glass/mirror store and have them cut you a new mirror. Grab your Yellow pages or Google and check it out.

Recieved mine today

So if I have understood correctly. To install
1. Remove 2 screws under the mirror assembly
2. Remove the mirror. (Is it snapfit? Do i need to pry?)
3. Remove 2 screws backside of lens.
4. Remove orange install clear and mount everything again.

Mirror has the two screws (clearly :P) and a point at the top of the post the mirror attaches to at the top. To remove, undo screws and pivot the mirror toward the bike as you pull the base down and toward you. Dont use force here, if force is needed you are doing it wrong, and its fairly easy to damage the post.
The bulb, do it before the lens, dont use tools to grab or pry as its easy to rip/cut the rubber, just grip the base with your fingers and pull it out and towards you. May take a bit of force, but itll come out!
The lens is easy, two screws, self explanatory.
Only trick for fitting is to make sure the rubber is pushed into the new lens properly - a pair of pliers so you can exert even pressure on both sides of the bulb base thingy helps here, AND make sure you get the little tip of the mirror post back into its spot before you push the base of the mirror post in .

Its really straight forward. There may be a little hesitation on the first one but the second will take like 2 minutes....

Okay thanx alot!
Just to make sure "a point at the top of the post the mirror attaches to at the top"

By post you mean mirror post or the housing of the mirror? So you shoul pivot the mirror in the adjustment and "slide" it downwards? Is the adjustment mechanism supposed to come out with the mirror aswell or should the mirror detach from it?

Maybe I am owerly worried about this and it is obvious once starting? I have fair amout of mech experience.
