Finaly took some pics of my new mirrors.

The size and shape is nice and they cost me R360, R250 for the mirrors and R110 for postage  :mwink:
The steam is cat Alu and finished nicely




This is the bit I was after, the entire mirror can swivel on the joint. The idea being that I can turn them in while on dirt



At R250 for a set im well chufed

Dude, I just enquired at Bigboy in Seapoint, the guy said they +- R600?

Where did you order from?

Btw they need some fiddling to make them fit. The bolts that they come with are too thin for the housing on the handlebar... On my bike at least...

Not the end of the world though. They look fkn cool!!!

Thanks for the help Mike! That garage of yours is :drif: :drif: !
Im getting a quote tomorrow on the new suspension bushings also.

btw. I did the ride to Scarbourgh, that loop, then chapmans, and all those roads along the ocean, also the one up to the cable car. Thanks for the tip!

You need to know the exact size of the bearing required

Just around the corner from bearing man is bearings international. Prices are also good.
Stick to FAG or NSK.
SKF too pricey.

LOL!!!

I have learned that the DRZ probably has no standard size bearing on it...

You can try from Bearing man and those places though.

I seem to recall you saying its front wheel bearings?

If you dont come right, phone Mario at Dirtrider, he can get you the All-Balls bearing kit.
