Looking to acquire some original mirrors for my 2-11 . Or something very similar . My car was supplied with Raceline mirrors which are very average .
The original OEM look a lot better and I may even get a chance to see what is behind me !
Just looking for the mirrors listed Number 3 in the picture
Thought i would check here first ... before scaring myself with OEM parts prices.



I found this while searching on the net , 211 parts list plus others

The original ones are crap. They don't hold their position at all! You will need to glue those bad boys in place to make them work. Also not fun is that you need to pull the car completely apart to change them (side panels have to come off). I just put these on Alan Wilzigs 211 and they are awesome.

Thanks for the info on the moto-works mirrors , they look ideal .
Which ones did you go for ?

My car is fully apart at present fitting a TVS / gearbox and Dry Sump , so as you say best time to fit ...

How is Alan's car coming along , I recall the thread you mentioned it was in for some major work .

True. :wallbang:

False. Use a hole saw to cut access holes in the inner side panel. Added benefit: car is lighter!

:p

Good Idea ... but i was thinking of doing it from the bottom of the bodywork. Have just fitted a EWP to the side of the cockpit .. so a hole at the bottom could have dual purpose,EWP and mirror fitting .
Hopefully my arms are long enough to reach both !!
