I never liked the standard mirrors,so fitted suzuki CATS EARS MIRRORS/INDICATORS. Very trick,easy to wire indictors. everybody notices it,no more bigass indicators stickin out and makes the bike look more like a track bike,slimmer.

I took my mirrors off and installed zip-ties through the holes.

Very cheap and effective.

Mirrors can deceive you...

Im pretty sure that you gots to have them in the US too

BUT

after I crashed I broke one of them so I took them both off

I got the broke one fixed and put them back on but after about two rides, I took them back off

I feel much safer without them because when they are on I end to use them instead of just turning to look--can be dangerous.

its going fast because it needs both front and rear blinkers wired correctly to function properly. just buy some 20 dollar flushmounts and put em on, its not that hard.

Jasamb that is a really good point I never thought of it like that. I had been debating if I should get rid of them.

I don't like the way sportbikes look when the mirrors are removed. Looks like something is missing.

i like my mirrors and wouldnt take them off for anything but i grew up in nodak and know that there is next to no traffic in that state so a person really does need them anyway. i would check ebay for a good deal.......im sure people have other sources that they rely on.

anyway, guessing from your message that you never found anyone to trade fairings with, huh?........or did the red just grow on ya? later

ps. where in nodak are ya?

haha, yeah, the red really grew on me. I wont go to a blue one if I had the chance. I am the only red R6 here. By the way, I live in Minot. Where were you from when you lived here?

You are right about the traffic thing, I LOVE IT!!
