Thread: ZX6R Mirror Mod

  1. #11

    Default

    A good buddy of mine just put GSXR Mirrors on his Gen 1 ... they look pretty sexy... plus they have the built-in turn signals in the mirrors.... better visibility also.
    If it can be modded, it will be modded.

    The Gixxer mirrors seem to cost about the same on ebay.

    Diggin' the look and I'm in for a little elbow wiggle to see what's behind me. And you were spot-on the eBay price. It might be worth a try....

    Default ZX6R Mirror Mod... You Decide

    Pulled the trigger. Technically, half a trigger so other folks can make an educated decision with a side-by-side comparison. See pictures. The left mirror (sitting on bike) is ZX6R. The right is OEM.

    PRO:
    Much more snarky - Sportbike like looks
    Much tighter & lower - Makes lane sharing (where legal) easier
    Straight bolt on option - FZ1 spacers and nuts fit directly to ZX6R parts

    CON:
    A lot less visibility compared to stock mirrors - You'd better like your arms because you're going to see a lot of 'em....
    Unfinished look around base

    VERDICT:
    I think I'll keep 'em. The widest parts of the bike are the mirrors. This mod brings them in to the bar-ends. I've ridden sport bikes for years and am familiar with the "elbow shuffle" to see aft. And I dig the look. Form outweighs function in this case.

    Thanks for the side by side comparison. They do look better that the stock mirrors. However, I wouldn't want to give up any more rear visibility. I already have to pull in my elbows to look back...

    Did the mirror mod today and I really like the look.
