To all you Sprint Junkies,

Just received 2 new VFR Y2K mirrors today.

Spent about an hour doing the mods and painting the filed base. Looks GREAT now without a condumn.

Kuddos to all who provided pics and insights to making this a relatively quick and painless mod.

Dynamo-Humm also carries the standard VFR mirrors as well as the imported EMGO copies, but they only seem to copy the more used non-Millennium model which has the rubber boot on them. You can get them here for around $20.00.

YEP! They cost $136USD (delivered) and they are OEM mirrors. They look cleaner, probably sit a little lower, but seem to have the same stretch as stock Triumph mirrors.

For all you pic junkies, I'll post pics and exact demensions by the end of the week.

$136.00 does seem high for a couple of mirrors, but lets not forget that they are genuine Honda OEM mirrors. Price out a replacement set of the Triumph RS mirrors and I bet that $136.00 isn't that bad after all. All the manufactures are charging much more for parts nowadays. :(

Triumph ST mirrors (02-04) are $106USD each!!!

I'd say that Triumph is proud of their condums. :)

OEM's are really proud of their parts. I got a set of mirrors for an F4i for $50. They are aftermarket, but look identical to factory.

Oops, how'd that one get there?

Hope these all help.

Hey Sport they they look grouse!

I like em. I might force myself to do that one day to my Caspian blue machine.

Sprint do they vibrate? or do they have the same coverage as the stock condom type mirrors?

One thing I really like and it has saved my ass once at least is I can detect plod in my rear view stock mirrors because they are so stable at high speed.

Job well done anyway Sport. :upthumb:

These look great. Like DaveM, I have rock solid mirrors on my RS, which means I get an excellent view of my arms at any speed! I'd like to fit something which is equally steady but doesn't need so much arm movement to see who's behind. As someone else on an earlier thread said, I don't want the bike to resemble Dumbo either! These Y2K VFR mirrors seem to be the best option.

I find the Y2K VFR mirrors provide a bit more viewing than stockers; that is, a little less elbow is seen. However, the gaskets are considerably thicker than stockers and seem to cut down on the vibes at higher speeds. I'll post more when I return from my trip after thanksgiving.
