Mirror swap?

Curious to know if anyone has changed out the mirrors on their SCR yet and if so, what's your pick, or if not, what would you consider/recommend?

I believe @flatrack installed bar end mirrors, though you'll have to ask him for a link to the ebay listing. https://www.scr950forum.com/forum/138...html#post24306

I did respond to the original post here but somehow it ended uo under "Forward Controls"...?

So yeah i installed 7/8" bar end mirrors but I also swapped out my handlebars. The stock SCR handlebars have end weights welded into them. I think I got the mirrors from Amazon - 7/8" Universal Bar End Mirrors,they cost about twenty dollars. The one thing you have to do to install them is bore out the throttle sleeve end. I used a Dremel and it worked great. The mirrors function pretty good. As long as everything is tight, vibrations aren't too bad. I think they look better than the stock ones but thats just personal preference.

Personally like the retro circular look with them sticking out. Yard Built used an under hanging mirror, though I have no idea where they got that one.

Looking at photos and such, there was a lot I wanted to change cosmetically with the SCR, but now that I have it I'm much more inclined to keep it close to stock (so far I've only removed the side panels). I do like how the mirrors look, but it's just that at 55mph+ they are vibrating like mad and it's almost indistinguishable what I'm seeing.

Dang, I really want that seat used on that yard built SCR though.

Would bar end weights help with the mirror vibration?

I've actually started to notice that the mirrors are vibrating less. Might have been heavy early on because of the break in period?

I drilled and tapped the stock bar inserts and then installed a set of SV650 bar end weights I had around. Look great. Absolutely useless toward mirror vibration. LOL

@flatrack - I've only just noticed this thread! LOL!

What bars did you fit? And why did you have to Dremel the throttle side (shouldn't they be 7/8th at both ends?!)

How is vibration without the OEM bar weight inserts?

I picked up some Halcyon bar end mirrors a couple of months' ago, but only saw Eddies post about the bike having unremovable bar end weights inserted about a week ago - doh! Shame, as I love bar end mirrors - used to have a pair on my Triumph Scrambler and they looked the **** (and more useful as well!)
