I really like the one I got from Baja Designs. It mounts by removing the rear clamp of the clutch lever and replacing it with one that has a threaded hole for the mirror so no extra clamps around the handlebars. It folds quickly out of the way when going off road and I can actually see behind me when on the road!

Search for "Bar end mirror" on Ebay - there are a million auctions going at any given time. I just picked one up from moto-deluxe for $25 shipped for my old RD350 & may have to get one for the WR. It appears to be high quality and best of all is actually useful.

Bar end mirrors ! I did have them on my XR but now have fitted them to my WR in the same way. They are not as good as proper mirrors but if you lift you elbow up slighly you can see whats behind you.

Ive used these for around a year & have no probs on road or track/greenlane.

Mirrors ARE NOT a legal requirement in the UK same as indicators.

Not if you live just up the freeway and know someone who works there. :)

Ken Sean mirrors are the best I have found, they even make a nice clamp for them. I have tried the fold aways but I find they are too small to see anything and they to short to view anything other than my arm
