ZX 14 mirrors on 08 C14?
« on: August 10, 2018, 01:43:28 pm »
Anyone here know if I can fit a ZX 14 mirror on my 08 C14? Have scratches on the right mirror and I felt going to the ZX 14 will be lighter on the wallet plus with the risers, I will have a better view.
Not sure about the vibration part though. I also observed the C14 having 3 screws instead of the 2 screw mount on the ZX 14.

yes, the mounting is completely different, and not conducive to the swap, let alone the $170 each for them...
there really is no 'supported' mounting point on the C14, for them.
sorry.

Thats what I thought., Some ads in eBay seemed to suggest it was a fit but I believe it was a mistake from their compatibility list. Connie has 3 screws and ZX has 2.

But I did find something for MOB.

Thanks for the link Ted, I have normal (actually the ones from my KZ1000, with the plastic shell) mIrrors on COGZilla, they are black plastic shells, and took to the Irridescent paint without having to use a black sub coat. They also screw right into the old style C10 switch pods... The mirrors themselves are like automobile mirrors, and 'swivel' inside the pod to fine adjust. I have some small rectangular carbon fiber look ones ($25/pair) on my KZ, not very big, but work OK... I bought some 'clubman' style bar end grips for it originally, but they didn't sit where I wanted them, so never used them for more than a day. I'm running tubular bars on both the old KZ and old C10.

thanks, but those are a bit to "O.C.C" for me, I like simple, and those would trigger "OCD" in my tiny brain. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :great:
