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. http://www.scr950forum.com/forum/138-yamaha-scr950-scrambler-general-discussion/2026-tires-tyres-tires.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.

@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!)

I installed 7/8" x 34" flat ttrack bars. Very similar to oem bars except black and no crossbar. Bar end mirrors are 3" round universal type ~ $20 from china. Used precision razor to cut off grip ends, used dremel to open end of plastic throttle tube. Mirrors are friction fit - mount by expanding inside bar ends. They've held up well so far and less vibration than stock ones.

That's wider than the stock bars which I find to be painfully wide on long rides. You must be Sasquatch.

That's good to hear, at least. Have you got any pics of it on here? I'll probably go with Renthals (the factory is only 30 miles from here!), and I saw they also fitted those on the Super Hooligan Flat Tracker as well, and looked pretty good. I don't want to take the look and feel too far from the standard bars, as I quite like em!!

Renthals seem a popular choice. The bars I fitted aren't much wider than stock, maybe an inch, my SCR isn't here to measure. No, no pics, I need to figure out how to do that on this thing.

***HISTORIC THREAD RESURRECTION ALERT***

Anyone ever heard of Barracuda mirrors, or have a pair fitted? Italian, apparently.....

I’m thinking of having a change from the bar-end mirrors I’m currently running, and they have some funky designs. Cost an arm-and-a-leg, like (as in, Rizoma territory!)

All are available in the colour options shown on one of the pictures.

Opinions?
