    M1000R Rizoma Stealth Mirrors, fluid resevoir & Lever guards

    Having purchased the new M1000R recently, I very quickly realised I didn't particularly like the bar end mounted mirrors, although I did install a set of Oberon bar end mirrors on my 2018 S1000R which I have always liked. There is a huge range of mirrors to choose from for modern motorcycles and making a decision was difficult, but bearing in mind the styling of the M1000 with its wings and generally aggressive design, I thought I'd go for the ultra stylish Rizoma stealth mirrors for naked bikes.
    Personally, I think they blend in well with the overall styling.
    To fit them, I needed to purchase the Rizoma mirror clamps, mainly because the standard brake lever clamp on the M1000 also includes the bracket for mounting the brake fluid resevoir, but also because the mirrors require a M8 mirror mount thread. So I was forced to purchase a separate brake fluid resevoir bracket and resevoir, of which I chose the Rizoma Next model and a Rizoma bracket. The mirrors also require a small spacer spool each to locate between the mirror and mount.
    I will just mention here that the mirrors are diabolical at doing their job but are better than nothing.
    As I do quite a few track days on my bikes and lever guards are now mandatory on UK circuits, I also fitted a pair of Evotech lever guards. The guards do make the handlebars look a bit busy, I think, but I've only had them fitted for a few days so might get used to it. Any opinions, friends?

    Those mirrors fit the style of the bike really well, almost like a set of extra wings! Can you see anything out of them though, can't see the mirror part

    I agree, and at a bike meet tonight, so did a lot of other bikers.
    No, they are sh#t at doing their real job. However, they're only 48 hours old so I have an adjustment to do that may help, like turning them in a little bit.

    No. They are very poor at being mirrors. You can see out of about 30% of them and that is at the tapered end portions. Also, adjusting the tilt angle requires very fine adjustment which is nigh on impossible while on the move.
    They really are a compromise between style and function. But, I like the style and have managed to live with them.
    At bike meets, they grab a lot of attention, though.

    Sorry, but they are too small, IMHO. 

    I would like to see behind me...

    Yep, they still vibrate and the cost for the total parts in the UK was around £600 because of the brake fluid resevoir requirements and associated brackets.

    Anyone else thinking of installing these mirrors (or any other standard handlebar mounted mirrors) Rizoma do this part which is designed to work with the stock fluid reservoir (saving you a bit of money).

    Oh! That's bloody handy. Wish I'd seen that before I went the route I took. Would have saved a fair bit of cash. I wonder how long Rizoma have been making this item. I spent a long researching what I might need and especially spent a lot of time on the Rizoma website, but can't remember ever seeing that item.
    On the other hand, apart from the mirrors, I get just as many comments about my Rizoma brake fluid resevoir and anything in machined alloy is better than the standard plastic item.

    I reckon you’re right, probably a new addition. I missed on the first pass when looking for the bracket adapter and ended up buying the 3-way adapter thingy (which is useless).

    Bike looks great, by the way.
