Smile Wunderlich SaferView Mirrors for the R1200RS

I enjoy riding with aspheric mirrors on my motorcycles. They require some visual adaptation but provide a much wider field of view. My old supplier of mirrors in the U.S., Multivex, went out of business. I was able to find a set from Wunderlich that is marketed as SaferView mirrors in Europe for the S1000RR that are the same shape as the R1200RS mirrors. Wunderlich's attachment method of using glue isn't the optimal way to attach glass with different curvatures. I successfully used 3M very high bond tape in the past and used it again successfully this week to attach these mirrors. I created a step-by-step method with photos in the attached PDF to help others. If you want aspheric mirrors that provide a wider field of view, you can now have them and safely attach them to your stock mirrors.

Ride safe,
Richard

Re: Wunderlich SaferView Mirrors for the R1200RS

Very nice. I have looked at SaferView mirrors a number of times. Thanks for taking the time to document a better solution of mounting the mirror.

On my Android tablet the file is downloaded with a .PHP extension. I had to rename the file to .PDF in order to open in Acrobat.
