Since the introduction of the R1200 RT, one single request for improvement from our customers that stands out above the rest is that of an affordable improvement to the mirrors. Though the original mirrors are well placed to provide wind protection, they are not in the optimal spot for a clear view of what's behind. We had an easy and very popular solution for the RT models up to 2009, involving the installation of supplemental handlebar mounted mirrors, but no way to offer a similar solution for the 2010 through 2012 RT.........until now!
These adapters replace the upper half of the lever perch and are threaded to accept a M10 x 1.5 mirror stud. The 10mm size is fairly common and you can mount a variety of mirrors, including the BMW mirrors for the R1200 GS for example. The mirrors that we recommend for this application however are our Vario Flash extending mirrors. The Flash mirrors have a unique angular shape that compliments the lines of the RT. Additionally, they are length and angle adjustable, so that you can achieve the optimal position and avoid interference with the windshield.
Please download the Installation instructions above for more information and images. Please also check out the video for this part.
Important Note: These adapters will only fit R1200 RT's 2010 through 08/2012 production date (2012 Model Year. These will not fit 2013 and later R1200 RT models! For a 6mm adapter that fits late 2012/2013 RT's, please order part 3272246.
