Does anyone here know the size of the mirror screws? I want to replace the now empty holes where the mirrors were attached. Right now I got some janky electrical tape covering them up.
Something like these:

Not really a fan of the colors, but I came across these that offer different bolt styles:

Anyone looking for plugs to cover the stock mirrors I bought these and they work great!

I just went to my local auto zone and bought a pack of plastic plugs like the one in the picture below. Just brought the screw for reference and pow it looks awesome, bought local and is cheap!

I like the mirrors, but my questions is: In your first picture, what is that 'thing' at the end of your right handle bar, on the throttle?
Perhaps a hand rest? or a clamp?

Thanks
Dan

Alright! I've read through this thread and got a bit lost. I want to do this mirror flip and want to do it right. Can someone do me a solid and post a link to the clamps I'll need (USA)? I got lost at the reverse threading deal... what do I need to know about that?
Thanks!

Just received the clamps to attach the mirrors, one question: which tool did you use to screw the clamps?

Thanks.

I used mirror side of the custom clamps and sandwitch'ed it with the oem lever bracket.
After changing to the wide drag bar theres even more space to adjust the mirrors.
I also wanted to use different mirrors, but I still havent found something I like and have the "e number" (german law bla bla).

Finally installed the clamps and flipped the mirrors. Pleased with the result.

The painting of the clamps is almost gone but I am thinking of painting them in black.
