Bar end mirrors
« on: December 22, 2020, 06:17:37 PM »
Hello! My RR+ is on the way ( been checking that DHL tracking page too much ) and I'm deciding on some first must-have accessories/addons.

I know that Mirrycle has been proposed a lot in older topics, but does anyone has any experience with other bar end mirrors?

I was looking at Corky Urban but I doubt the fixed version will work with the stock grips - It's pricey but I like the minimalist design

Another minimalist option with good reviews is the Hafny bar end mirror - it seems that it would work well - has anyone tried them?

I'd imagine the Hafny mirrors would work on the RadRunner Plus but I've only tested them out on our RadWagon. Here is the video I made (full disclosure: Hafny sent me a bunch of mirrors to review)

i had tried several bar-end mirrors on my radrunner 1 but ran into side clearance issues during several of my rides. the mirrycle bar-end mirror requires extensive modification to work with the radrunner 1 (see my comments in this thread https://www.radowners.com/index.php?topic=295.msg1286#msg1286). not sure if this would also be an issue with the radrunner plus. i finally settled on the hafny right (hf-mr080r) and left (hf-mr080l) "handlebar mirrors". $15 each and free shipping on ebay.

I like my bar end mirrors hanging low!

Thanks for the input everyone! I ordered the HF-MR90S/B from Hafny ( found it on sale ) - Waiting to see how it'll work & I'll update here with a pic!

I just got this exact mirror for my RR Step-thru and it works perfect.  It's a solid fit and doesn't move or loosen during rides either.  You'll be happy I'm sure.

I rode BMW motorcycle for years and tried several bar end mirrors.  The real takeaway is in your line of sight. You HAVE to look to the side to see the mirror because they are low and out of your normal line of sight. That means you take your eyes OFF the road... That why I went back to high handlebar mirrors.
