    What kind of mirrors can I mount on the ZRX?

    Hi folks,
    my first post is about the mirrors for the Rex. I would like to use the Honda CB 1300's mirrors, but i don't know if they are compatible. Can you please tell me which type of mirrors can be mounted on the ZRX?

    Thanks very much

    Ive only seen OEM, OEM replacement such as https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-Of-1...YAAOSwDvVa1Fxe and bar end type.


    As for CB13, i guess if the threads match you would be laffing (as you can ultimately make most things fit).


    Why are you changing tho as if its because they are loose, you can seperate the bottom nuts and internally tighten them

    The problem is that the previous owner of my ZRX, has removed the original ones, so i have to put on new ones..the CB 1300's mirrors, has the same diameter of the original mirrors of the rex, i guess it should be fine, no?

    Recently Chris from here showed me the Suzook ones he has installed and in my opinion they were better than stock.
    I think he said they were from most middleweight Suzuki`s but I am sure he will advise you if you p.m him.
    Cheers

    If the CB1300 mirrors have the same size thread, the same thread pitch and the threads are the same "hand", theres no reason why they wont fit.

    Some left hand mirrors have a left hand thread & some dont, so thats another thing to consider when buying mirrors, so might be best to also check this before buying them.

    Has anyone fitted the bar end mirrors I've seen around? Just wondering if there is any feedback on them before I risk my cash. Sick of seeing only my left elbow....🎱

    Over the years loads of people have fitted bar end mirrors, many opinions, many options, best bet is to make a cuppa while you do a search....

    There are some general points worth considering. I've got low bars on the rex and never had a bother with the standard mirrors re elbows. I also run bar ends from time to time and for my money small bar end mirrors means your eyes are off the road ahead for longer vs standard and (depending on design) you are widening your profile meaning tight filtering is a tad tighter.

    Very subjective area, hence search suggestion.

    Potential issue is adding width to the bars, depending on mirror design. In urban environment and when line splitting this may be unpleasant. Mirror active surface is also usually less than surface of stockers. Many use extenders for mirrors mounted in standard location to deal with obstruction you describe.

    I have used several designs of bar end mirrors (from small round that you can only see a prescence of something to more expensive options) and find the 3 piston ones to give better than average vision, crash surviveability and are rock steady at speed whilst not being expensive (as the Rizoma versions are).


    You will recognise them by the milling marks on the back - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-X-3-Pis...8AAOSw9hdaG~h7

    Stay away from the non billet/carbon look tin versions as they can fold in at speed and are a bit nasty IMHO


    Be aware though that none of the bar end mirrors give anywhere near the vision of standard but then sometimes its better to come second looking good
