Thought I'd conclude my thread with a version 1.0 patent pending release pic. Obviously version 2.0 is already in the plans...

Excuse the background, did a quick install at home, these are pre-paint.

I feel like there has to be an elegant solution to cover that 3rd hole.

Good observation Coyne, hence the Version II that's been designed and will be an all in solution, but most likely not going on sale.

The above is for Magical Mirror owners and the third hole disappears with our kit, so it's a non issue.

iirc, you mentioned that you had a mounting base solution that would fit/tie in with these stalks? can you elaborate on that at all?

i currently use the top hole with a custom cut carbon base plate with the motoworks stalks... just trying to get an idea if i go with your stalks on what kind of situation ill be in with covering the extra base area hole(s)

Hi DW, great question.

Let me be a little more clear for those interested. The mount is developed for the lower two holes with a carbon fiber built plate to cover the plinth. The plate is approximately 1mm so it all looks factory.

Right now the plate is offered in either matte or gloss black. The mount is offered in four options.

You want the La Ferrari look - here it is.

sounds good

once again, a nice gesture to create something like this for a small fraction of us... hopefully it'll encourage others to go with the motoworks mirrors down the road... in general its a fantastic quality mirror

Is the length of the mirror the same as stock?

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)

The solution is purposely built to the width of the factory mirror and mount.

For wide body applications they'll be a slightly longer mount.

I like the small and narrow stem but somehow not liking where the stem attaches to the mirror. I realise you are working with existing mirror housings but in my opinion it would be so much better if the stalk would connect at the point of a mirror instead of just below. It may be the pictures but the mirror seems to 'droop' a bit.

Looking forward to seeing some better pictures with paint or possibly your 2.0 design.

I'm late to the game. Is this including the mirror or just the stalk?
