Another thanks to Chis/Flying Brick. I installed the adjustable/fold-able mirrors yesterday, very easy install and these guys actually work, the Factory ones are terrible.

I will take some pics in the morning bud. They are very similar the ones the Chaps off the "awesome players" Youtube channel have on their BMW bikes, really solid construction and they fold inwards for when you play off road.

Here you go.
I am a BMW fan boy (unashamedly) B-U-T the designer of the G450X OEM MIRRORS should be shot at dawn/hung, drawn, and quartered. Woeful!


15-degree Convex mirror-face, for wider field of view, and they sit wider when extended than OEM mirrors, so again, easier to see behind, etc.
Then fold away for the fun bits.


R2800 for the full handguard/shileds/clamps, alles.
R550 per mirror, so they are spendy.
All parts replaceable, etc.

Cheers
Chris & team

yes, we carry BarkBusters, about 15 models, and they RANGE in price from a low of R1550 per set to a high of R1650, with a few models costing R1600; do NOT ask us why this anomoly exists - the importer cannot tell us.

So if yo take the upper price of BarkBusters, R1650, then these are around R1000 more, per set.
They are over-engineered, no bad thing in my opinion.
It's the MIRRORS which then cost a fair bit, but they finish off the package, but ARE available separately, and do not need to be bought with the handgaurds, etc.

Cheers, Dom

My petrol pump gave out on our trip. BMW quoted R5800 for the fuel pump assembly. Ordered a replacement in tank pump from Fuel Performance for R1550. Delivered to my door in a day.

Good info. I wondered what fooked out  ::) ... thought it may be an injector or the fuel pump (I had a failure on my one on the Husky 610 but it was just a perished pipe in the tank and repairable).
