Hey guys...

I found this video... using a heat gun...



It almost looks simple... wish I knew about this a few months ago!

Stay safe.

First ride- various minibikes in the 70\'s
First bike- 1974 Suzuki GT380 (bought around 1979)
First big bike- 1981 Kawasaki KZ1300 full dress (bought new)
First Goldwing- 1982 GL1100A (bought 2012)
Another 1982 Goldwing (parts bike)
My newest bike- 1997 Goldwing GL-1500SE (bought 2012)

Oh, and I love Krav maga too! But if Krav Maga is not effective, I highly recommend firearms!

Detailed Pics Coming

This weekend I'm going to do another set of mirrors and try and figure if I can add a volt gauge to one of the sides also. This time I will take step by step pictures for ya all. Here is the second set of arm rest that I did as individual holes and individual wires.

How long did it take to get your mirror lights.
I am thinking of doing mine, yours look good!

I was looking and lots of bad feedbacks for most the Hong Kong sellers, mostly about people never got their items or long long shipping times.

Also a warning to others, read the E bay listings close. Prices are all over the place, some high with free shipping, some low with high shipping, some are for just 1 arrow, some are for a set of 2, and even one listing said they would send the color of "their choice" of red, blue, white, or yellow!

I ride for FOOD

99 SE 1500, Also riding now, Red ( Second fastest color)
95 SE 1500, riding now, Purple (the fastest color)
88 1500 recovering from deer hit, Phantom Gray (Most expensive color )
82 1100 riding sometimes, Red
Also 80 1100 naked and 86 1200 Interstate, not running yet.

How is the quality and fitment of the cover? I have been thinking of getting one, but hate to spend $55 for an unknown quality item.

Thumbs up

WOAH ! ! !
I like this price a WHOLE LOT BETTER than Muth Mirrors @ $220 to $230
Even beats Warshawski's $130
(fitments are scarce)



I did call Muth and ask how to remove their mirrors in case of housing breakage.
They said it can't be removed without breaking the glass, we use 2 different glues.

( dem-buggers ! )
