    Just put a set of the D600 mirrors onto my 675 - what a world of difference - whilst I have yet to do any miles due to the weather, just sitting on the bike you can see past your elbows now! Looks very promising, they are exactly the same mirrors - just with a longer stem. I got them from a seller on the old D600 forum for £22.50 delivered.
    Will sort some pics shortly, but worth considering if you like to see whats around you.

    Well you get the idea - I'm not getting the bike out but will do some better ones when the sun bothers to shine again.
    I reckon its £20 well spent - yes they look a little longer but not so you would notice and the view is 100% better to the rear.

    I'll be interested in knowing if they stop you from filtering where you might have done with the old mirrors :?:

    The reason I ask is that when I had that horrible loan bike the mirrors were one bit of it that I thought were any good if only because I could see out of them. I did nearly t**t a few cage drivers mirrors when filtering though :!:

    In the photos I have pulled them out to the widest to show the effect, actual position (for me) is tucked in a little.
    To be honest if I was in that much of a hurry to filter I would pull them in personally. Also they are only a touch wider than the bars - the originals are very narrow.
    Yet to use them on the road - and the state of the weather its not looking good for a few days yet!

    I tend to keep all the bits I take off - just in case I change my mind, or when I sell it on (way off in the future I know) to return it to standard spec - it seems you get no more money for modified bikes. Sorry - tried EBay?

    Your new mirrors look fine, but what was the actual address to make contact with the supplier?

    Not sure what you are after? - I bought mine from a seller on the UK D600 forum.

    Dead easy just get the right size allen key. The benefits of using Triumph ones is you dont need to take the mount off - just unbolt the stem. There is some loctite or similar on the threads so it requires a little bit of oomph to shift.
    Its a 2 minute job - literally.

    Nice one, Just fitted the Triumph Double Buble and that was a 10 minute job. How much were they if you don't mind me asking?
