Default Mirror compatibility

I am after the rubber covers for my 87 bike. Looking at part numbers for mirrors on the early 'jelly-mould' bikes it appears that the 87 and 88 bikes have different part numbers to those on the 89 bikes, although, in photos, they look the same to me. Is it something importand like hole spacings etc, or is it just a colour change etc?

Most likely it's the color. They were the same thru 1990. Where are you finding these? Most suppliers don't have them anymore.

I am hoping to pick some up second hand so just wanted to knowmwhich models are compatible. I actually only need the rubber 'boots' in black.

Got some second hand mirrors. How do they come apart to swap boots to my original mirrors? There doesn’t appear to be any way of dismantling them

If they're similar to the 1000F, they have a rubber outer boot and steel inner. It would be tough to remove the rubber without tearing it, but you might be able to peel it off. Dishsoap or a bit of heat might help

I used spraybomb meant for soft plastic parts. Not sure how long it'll last, but it's an option

I think it's not possible to remove the boot without disassembling the mirror completely. This can only be done by removing the glass part first. It's almost impossible to take it out of its swiveling holder without braking it, btdt. One way to get it out in one piece would be to cut off the plastic rim of the holder first. Then it would be necessary to glue the glass back in.

While you have two mirrors it doesn't matter if you break the glass on the other. Just cut the rim on the other and take the glass out. Then you have a solid holder in which you can put the glass part. If you do it this way remember to heat up the holder with hair dryer before putting the glass in. So the the holder is a bit more flexible.
