mirror material
« on: February 25, 2019, 07:15:37 pm »

I looked at your "other" post, also; like I said, if it's soft plastic, and BLACK, it's likely HDPE, if it's hard plastic/painted/ and resists being "scratched" by a "sharp pin". it's likely ABS...

Thanks MOB  I just figured this was better discussed here. hoping someone had a mirror off that could find a code.  As you know this is the black part of the mirror assembly . you can't see the loom/loop unless you take off the top fairing cover(s) . Don't know what to call them but directly above the air cleaner.

It is ABS. When I tipped over last year and busted the right mirror, I glued it back together while waiting for the new mirror to arrive. Worked good too.
