They look like rizoma reverse retro mirrors.
eBay is full of cheap chinese clones of those. But the quality varies.

All done.

Tail Tidy Fitted, Painted wheels fitted and alarm...
Fuel Pump recall fixed, and they also found a fault in the ECU which needed KTM's help to sort, this is also fixed.

I think this should do me for a while..

Just had a look on eBay and I think they are the rizoma ones. They ain’t cheap though are they. If the quality is there and you can actually see what is behind you I might have to get a pair. Better than paying a speeding ticket. :D

My 2 cents: get a pair of crg arrows.
Equally expensive, but great quality, and the shape really works with the angular lines of the SuperDuke.

The rizoma's are too rounded if you ask me.

I'll find out what my mirrors are today.

Those CRG for me would be no good as they stick even further out from the handle bars than stock mirrors, would make lane filtering even harder.

Just take that into consideration if you do this.

Bulids looking good Savage, nice job on the wheels. You do them yourself?

As for mirrors, I have a set of LSL Gonia on mine, shape suits, are a bit cheaper than Rizoma, quality German made and still look good after 3 years.

THse LSL mirrors look good as well.

I found out what my Mirrors are, they are Tarmac Speed Racer.
Google search shows plenty of them about (in Australia at least) here's example https://www.amawarehouse.com.au/tarmac- ... 10343.html


Here's some quick and nasty camera phone shots of mine up closer.

They look to be a direct rip off, of the Rizoma mirrors.

Thanks but ive looked and i cant get them over here in the uk so it would cost a fortune in shipping costs from Australia. Going to go for the LSL ones they look cool. Thanks for looking for me though Cheers. :D

Thanks for the offer but i bought a couple of things for my Rocket 111 back in 2005 from Australia and it was expensive then. I m going to go for the lsl ones there only over the river lol.

How did you sort that clutch lever in the end ?

I had the same issue but drilled out the the supplied smaller diameter bushing
