I have experienced mounting the common "ball in socket" plastic mirrors on the opposite side, and flipping it upside down so it sits under the grip. I actually thought it worked pretty good on my previous KLX650, although it is down pretty good, and you really take your eyes off the road to use it, esp. with a helmet on. haven't gotten to trying things on my WR yet, but I will within the next week.

I bought an MSR mirror with mount for about $13. I wrapped some rubber electrical tape around the aluminum bar of my handguards and mounted the mirror over that. Now it folds down behind my handguards when not in use and just survived a 30+ mile hare scramble.
H i , how does that mirror work for you ? Vibration ? Can you adjust it, it looks like it isnt adjustable. Can you see well with it ? Bob

Another vote for Dual-Star. You can actually see out of them! If you're going to strap a piece of juck plastic on you bike just to "be legal", why not put a good one on that works as a mirror - comes in handy on the trail to see who's behind you.
Are they adjustable ? Is it glass ? Can you get by with just one ?

How much space on the bar do you need to install this ? On my 07 WR450, there is very little space. Can you actually see good where you have it located ? Does it have much adjust-ability ? Bob

Hope this helps someone, stay safe!
Also, on another subject, how do I post a pic? I tried to Photobucket one and it is not here. How do you guys do it without posting a link? Thanks in advance
