These mirrors are replacements for the originals and meet or exceed the original specifications in every way. If your mirror is damaged, the mirror is loose or the stem is starting to rust, these mirrors are available as an alternative to the more expensive Original BMW replacement mirrors and are essentially identical, made by the original supplier to BMW.
This Long version mirror was original equipment on the R1100GS and R1100 RS
These mirrors can also be installed on the R850 R and R1100 R models if you prefer a mirror that is taller than the original.
We also have a short version of these mirrors which was standard on the R850 and R1100 R models. Conversely, the shorter version mirrors can be installed on the GS or RS if you prefer a shorter mirror. Please see the link under the Related Products tab.
