Folding Mirror for KTM 450EXC

KTM or Acerbis Folding mirror for KTM 450EXCMy 2011 KTM 450EXC came with a pair of very nice mirrors. So nice, I didn’t want them to break off when off road riding. I took them off and replaced them with Acerbis folding mirrors. As can be seen from the picture on the right, the mirror mounts to the handlebars with a ball joint mounted within a bracket. This allows the mirror to rotate 360 degrees front to back. It can also rotate sideways within the limits of the handlebars.

I only use one mirror mounted on the left hand side. This meets the Department of Motor Vehicles requirement so the motorcycle will be street legal. I generally don’t ride the motorcycle on the street, but I have it plated for riding on public roads between trails, or for riding into towns for gas or lunch during a trail ride. On the positive side, this mirror can be easily rotated out of the way when riding off road, so it doesn’t break during a crash. On the negative side, it is quite useless as a mirror. It vibrates quite badly, so it is difficult to see vehicles around you.
