Aftermarket mirrors

Hey all... Has anyone replaced the stock mirrors on their 2016 Thruxton (1200 or R)? If so I知 looking for photos of the replacements on bike and I知 hoping if you did swap out mirrors then maybe you could post a pic here. I知 looking because I致e found two options of mirrors by three manufacturers; Bikemaster, Biltwell and CRG. Two are the smaller bar end mount that are almost flush with the bar (maybe 1 higher) and the Biltwell is also a bar end mount but looks more like the stock mirrors but more of an outward curve. Before I commit I壇 like to see how they look on a thruxton.

They were a bit expensive but I love the look of the Rizoma. Great quality and the mirror finish is awesome at night.

Rizoma is top notch... That痴 a great look on your ride! Do you have the Thruxton 1200 or the Thruxton R? I ordered a pair of Rizoma Legend grips but had to send them back because grips were too small (Thruxton R have 7/8 bar whereas Thruxton 1200 has 1).

These pics show the difference between stock Thruxton mirrors and CRG's. I swapped the CRG's I had on my old Bonnie to my Thrux and vice versa You do get a better rear view with the stockers and don't have to dip your eyes. I've had CRG's on several bikes so I'm used to them. When I want to see behind me I can, and I like the low profile and easy folding option.

I personally hate how mirrors look on bikes, they池e usually huge, even the small ones, and look like big ears. Totally kills the lines of the bike, especially on a cafe racer. I also don稚 trust mirrors and always take a quick glance over my shoulders before I change lanes. So I run one CRG Blindsight mirror on the left side. Works well for me and it looks good in my opinion. I can see how this wouldn稚 work for everyone. Here痴 how it looks on an R.

Are not the 2016+ water-cooled bikes equipped with "plugged" handlebars to accept the stock screw-on trim caps? And the bars notched for the heated grips wires? This would limit the number of mirror options as it does for the older air-cooled bikes.

I think the fact that they are frameless with an aluminum mirror polished lens is wicked cool

Are the bars the same as an 07? Not hollow, threaded? I didn’t want to spend the cash for two mirrors and ended up getting these off of amazon for $13 to see if my theory would work. In order to avoid the hassle of buying the adapter, I simply removed the screw from the old bar ends, removed the expander from the mirrors, inserted screw into mirror and these fit like a charm. Only thing I found is I needed a spacer or two on the throttle side because the mirror would sits flush with the grips and not just the bars. Adding the spacer allowed for the mirror to sit flush with the bar. As for the $13 mirrors...I think they were a great bang for the buck. You can’t see extreme detail when riding, but you can definitely make out what’s behind you and as long as I can know if something’s behind me and where I’m happy. I don’t need to see them picking their nose. I installed them last winter and put about 3k on the bike over the summer last year and never had any problems with these mirrors. They sit at a perfect spot to where my arms never come between them and my eyes. There are things I’ll spend good money on for my bike then there are mirrors.
