Sorry guys! But I've searched and searched, and I can't seem to find the company that makes some really trick stuff for our bikes. One of the trick items is Handguards with mirrors built right into them, that fold out when you need them, but are otherwise protected. They really make some excellent switches for the handlebars too, that combine brake & clutch perches into starter buttons & kill switches, which helps remove some of the clutter on the handlebars. Can anyone help?! Thanks guys!!!

I don't believe he is looking to "Bling" is bike out by looking for an effective functional way to be street legal and safe while dualsporting. :thumbsup:
Thanks Kawi380! I had know idea they made something like that. I saved that site for when I finally get to my dualsport conversion on my WR.

No "bling" needed here. I prefer function! That company has some incredible stuff!!! I was really looking to reduce the handlebar clutter, and they're electrical switches are perfect! But then I start looking at there "Anti-vibration inserts" and I start seeing even more money leaving my checking acct.!!!

I'm right there with you. Who cares about bling, it's all about functionality.

I recently bought a KTM style "long" stem mirror to try on the left side to see how I like it. I've had it a couple of weeks and really like it. It is long enough to see past my elbo and the glass is large and the optics are very good, compared to other mirrors that I've had.

I got it from the guy on ADVrider that sells them as "KTM mirrors". I later saw them on the Procycle site for a little less $$, but they didn't offer the long stem.

The joint "ratchets" where the stem meet the base, and it allows you to fold it "out" almost horizontally and also fold it "in" completely out of the way.

I'll probably order another for the right side to make lane changing safer.

That's what I just got rid of because it was too short & seemed to shake a lot. But yours are mounted out on the handguards, mine was a bar mount. Is that a special base adaptor that allows you to mount them on the handguards?
