I just replaced the “bunny ear” mirrors with a set of Arrows. Here’s a short review.
I decided to get rid of the stock mirrors on my R bc I was seeing way too much of my elbows and not enough behind me. I also didn’t like the way they look, but that wouldn’t have bothered me if they actually worked well.
I considered the Triumph bar end mirrors. They apparently provide a better view, but I’ve heard complaints about the vibrating at higher revs.
I finally came across arrows, which have excellent reviews. Yes, they ARE overpriced, but I also didn’t want to have issues with a Chinese knock-off.
My impressions so far is that they feel like a highly quality product. They feel robust. They give an excellent view of everything behind you. They are, however, more convex than most but not to the point where it’s a problem.
Not only are they functional, they look great. They go perfect with the Triple. Like they were meant for streetfighters.
One mistake I did was take them apart. Do not to do this. There so many parts for something as simple as a mirror. There are many small pieces, including tiny bb bearings, that can get easily lost. There’s also some type of goopy substance for the bearings that makes a mess. I was finally able to get everything back together, but it was a pain.
One question I do have for anyone that has replaced mirrors on the 765 S or R is whether I actually need a screw for the hole on the brake reservoir side where the old mirror was attached. The Triumph instruction manual seems to suggest you do, but it doesn’t appear that it’s necessary. I think the the screw on older triples held together the brake reservoir and that the manual just hasn’t been updated.
Thanks for the help
