Mirror .. Mirror on the ah .. VMAX !!
by Terry Campbell
There are plenty of aftermarket mirrors out
there to satisfy almost any personal preference. However, if you
like the appearance and functionality of a "stock"
mirror but would like to streamline things a little, (and add a
little of that "there is something different but I can't
tell what it is" effect), then steal a set of Royal Star
mirrors for a song from one of your "cruiser" buddies.
They are stock items on Royal Stars, (including the Royal Star
Venture), the Road Star and infact the entire Yamaha "Star"
line of cruisers. The mirror heads are identical to those used on
stock Vmaxes but the stems are smaller in diameter, shorter and
bend at a steeper angle. The stems on both mirrors are removable
and interchangable. They are available directly from Yamaha, left
part no: 4NK-26280-00-00, right part no: 4NK-26290-00-00. Or, for much less, you
can get aftermarket versions at Flanders ( http://www.flanderscompany.com/
- select mirrors). Flanders part numbers are 401-86834 and 401-86833.
