Mirror FlashPart Number: 8700035
Availability: In Stock
These are ingenious mirrors with several adjustment possibilities. If needed, they can be folded completely out of the way. This solves several problems such as moving in traffic or when parking, also when off-road riding (not in the way when riding standing up) and in case of a fall the mirrors are better protected. In addition, the 75 mm (~3”) length adjustment range of the “Flash” mirror ensures the rider can always see what’s coming from behind. In case of a fall when the mirrors are in the regular position the angle adjustment joint and the built-in “clutch” allow the mirror to fold and rotate, this usually prevents damage to the mirror and attachment points. The aspherical (2 planes) mirror surface widens the field of vision and reduces the “blind spot”, a problem associated with the original mirrors. The special mirror glass incorporates a light blue anti-glare layer that reduces sun and light reflections to a minimum.
• Stepless angle adjustment, folds away if needed.
• Length adjustable (75 mm range)
• Built in “clutch” between mirror and attachment bolt protects mirror and attachment points in case of a fall.
• Sold complete with adapter.
• Easy and fast fitting to bike.
Mirror can be fitted to left or right side, sold as a single mirror unit. Suitable for all models using an M10 x 1.5 mirror thread.
In conjunction with our mirror adapters, these mirrors can also be fitted to any 2010 or later R1200 RT. The adapters can be found under the Related Products tab.

|love the adapter...hate the mirrors.....nonadjustable on the fly...put them on...took them off...going to be returned. Wondering If I should keep the adapter and fit GS mirrors on them.|
|I purchased one of these "aspherical" mirrors with the hopes if lessening the blind spot on either side. Despite doing a quich head check frequently, I gain added confidence from a second source. I'm disappointed. I was expecting a more convex curve to this mirror, and although it does have a small rounding to the tip where it narrows the benefit gained is hard to see.|
|After I installed these on my R1200 RT, I can really see what is behind me very well. Once I installed them, I really came to see how inadequate the fairing mounted mirrors are. I am still fine-tuning the adjustment and there is a little low speed vibration, but having the enhanced rear view is great.|
|Excellent mirrors to remove the RT blind spot directly behind. These are very necessary on these models. I may be a bit dense, because it was not clear to me that the 2014 RT had to have additional adapters (another $80 or so). I ordered the mirrors, then had to order the adapters separately. Other than a wrong part sent with the adapter order, it all came out OK. Mr. Plam made an effort to make things right with the order.|
|The mirrors are a great addition to an RT (2012). The stock mirrors give a great view of your hands. I have these configured for a wide angle view, and the stock a narrow angle.|
|Great for folding up when lane splitting, my only wish is that the mirror was adjustable while riding. Once I got them adjusted to the right position they're great.|
|They are difficult to set up but they will rotate up and down while on the highway so for me they were adjustable. They do vibrate at low RPM's but at highway speed are fine.|
|I purchased the Flash mirrors after a riding buddy got them and raved about how much he loves them. After instaling my mirrors and heading out on the highway, the first thing I noticed was how distorted the image was due to vibration. I moved the mirrors to their shortest length and still had a very distorted view. The stock BMW mirrors are much better, and in my opinion offer greater safety.|
|I bought these after test riding a new K1600GT. The stock mirrors on my R1200RT were dismal. I could never see the car directly behind me. Forget about any blockage from carrying items on the seat. Also, I did not like having to avert my eyes down every time I needed to look in my stock mirrors. These do the job. Yes, it was a pain to setup and adjust properly but once you dial in the setup you can forget it. A bit of vibration but I am still pleased.|
|The purpose for this purchase was to provide rear vision when I carry camping equipment on the luggage rack. The original mirrors are blocked if anything is carried across the luggage rack. These flash mirrors certainly provide excellent rear vision once properly adjusted, however they basically make the original mirrors on the R1200RT partially useless, as the stalk of the new mirrors obscure the vision of the stock mirrors. I changed the field of vision on the stalk mirrors to a much wider stance in order to pick up vehicles lane changing into my side. The flash mirrors are very steady at speed.|
|This is the only product I have purchased from Wunderlich that I would not recommend. Installation is simple, but even minor adjustments require wrenches (forget the minor adjustment at the traffic light!). This is great inconvenience every time you load the bike differently. The price is lower than BMW mirrors, but quality is also lower. To hide the nuts at the mirror mount, you need to purchase the rubber BMW cover like the ones used in the GS bikes. I would recommend purchasing BMW mirrors for GS motorcycles instead.|
|Outstanding quality and they perform so well. Couldn't believe what I was missing if you're riding an RT they are a must|
|These mirrors completely make up for the lack of function of the fairing mounted mirrors. They are easy to install once the original clamps are replaced with the mirror adapters. They look like they came with the R1200RT from the factory, and once they are installed, the fairing mounted mirrors can be adjusted to give clear unobstructed views of the traffic approaching from the rear in the left and right lanes of traffic. Approaching vehicles are visible in the mirrors from directly to the rear until within my peripheral vision with only a slight turn of the head. One of the best safety devices that can be purchased for the R1200RT. Also the Flash Mirrors give an excellent view to the rear when a wide bag or case is mounted on the luggage rack, something that could not be done comfortably with the the fairing mirrors alone.|
|These mounted fine but a wrench is needed to make any adjustment which is not to handy while rolling down the road. On my R1200RT they vibrated to much and have a strange field of view. Just did not make the grade for me. YMMV|
|Very easy to install with the added adapters Mirror provide plenty of adjustment (IN-Out, Up Down) to make them perfect for your rear vision.|
|Excellent mirror. Works best on the right side of my 2011 R1200RT. Keep bumping into it on the left side when dismounting.|
