On the left I put the small diameter Rizoma blindside spy bar end mirror for legal purposes and to see in dual lanes before overtaking. Again in alloy.

I am very happy, and now have no ugly big black mirrors hanging off the front fairing.

Going to the track is simply removing the bar ends, all too easy.
I did this too recently. I could not stand the awful vibration sent into the mirrors. It made them virtually pointless.

So got myself the Futurismoto blinkers and deleted the mirrors altogether. Will see how far this gets me on public roads as mirrors are mandatory.

If you go to their website and look at the v4 section there is a pic of my bike right down the bottom.


I looked at these. How are they on length. position and usefulness compared to the original ones

The arms are about 100mm long.

They are much better than the original ones as they do not vibrate and you can actually see whatís in them.

The position is as good as any other sports bike Iíve owned

That is, you still need to move your arm to look in them but thatís what theyíre all like.

That didnít answer the question. They do look shorter. However, if they donít vibrate that is a definite improvement.

Thatís what I was getting at. They do look shorter as with the original ones I can see a little without moving my arm.
Might just bite the bullet with these as I donít see any other options anyway

Motzarelli,
You can get Rizoma Veloce L mirrors, but you need the base adaptor for the V4. These are beautiful mirrors but real pricey. All up about $1000 you get them in Australia from hurtlegear.com.au

I went with the Rizoma bar ends from hurtlegear and Futurismoto blinkers

I’m not sure what else you’re looking for from me?

As i said, they are shorter than OEM, they fold, they don’t vibrate, and as with all sports bikes I have ever owned, you still need to move your arms to see what is behind you.

All I needed was the folding option, as even though I have an extended garage, the OEM mirrors not folding made it tight to fit the cars and bike in with all the other stuff.

Please let me know what else I could tell and I will let you know.

Itís all good. I think you have answered everything and it seems Iím in the same position with you and too many toys and not enough garage space

Nah, you did good bro. Thanks for the info. They are shorter by a little bit, you can still see, a plus is they donít vibrate, and they donít cost a grand. We got it!
