Left Hand Threaded Mirror Extenders?
« on: November 13, 2017, 12:26:13 PM »
Anyone have a source for 8mm x1.25 left-hand threaded mirror extenders (AKA, "risers, extensions") ??

8mm ones are not common - add 'reverse thread' for one of them & it gets real sporty.
I have found one in Asia - but looking for some on my home continent!

Thanks, Stig

Are these for the Piaggio Stig?   I know the Like mirrors are pretty close together but I thought the Piaggio would have been much better.

Well, I don't fault the scooter. My gear is so bulky in the winter or when rain is possible that I want longer mirrors.
Accomplished this on the LIKE200i with very long stemmed FAR (Italy) mirrors;  on the Honda Forza with mirrors from the CB500X bike; on the Burgman with 2" stem extensions sold in the U.K.

Going to try using velcro over/straps around elbows to compress the layers.

Like a circus bear on a tricycle - I'm really too big to be riding any scooter. My son keeps prompting me to take his tall CB500X for my rides.
But I like imagining I'm a 5'6" Italian going for a cappuccino in Rome.

Ahh me....

Spoke with a guy in Italy the other day. There are plenty of mirror options for Vespa mirrors there. My Liberty uses the really nice mirrors as found on Vespas. At $20 ea. they are truly a bargain.
Hate to toss them ,,,so will try those billet extenders which I dislike.

Hope it works out.  Putting Vespa mirrors on my Like was the best thing for me.

Why not just get something like this https://www.amazon.com/Mirror-Riser-CNC-Extenders-Adapter/dp/B007NIPI86/ and something like this
https://www.amazon.com/8mm-Thread-Mirror-Adapter-Conversion

Kinda annoying to have to get 'em both but it does solve the problem.

I also spotted this which notes use of reverse threading aka Yamaha
