I was in the stealership the other day with my dad and were looking around at the bikes and i looked on the 48, with the mirrors mounted opposite the way ours are, has anyone tried the top part of the mounting spacer/bolt from the 48? I know some have "flipped there mirrors, but I am wondering if this part from the 48 would work on the DX?!

I did it on my 09 DX, and I love it! Instead of forearm and elbows,in my mirrors I see between my knees and elbows with an unobstructed view. but I didnt use any parts from the 48. I just found nuts that fit, and then put 2 bullet type valve caps (black of course) on the top of the exposed threads. Works good and Ive Had no issues with them.

yeah I know lots of people have done this mod, but i am wondering directly about the parts from the 48. It looks clea, and it's already black!

The relocators for the front signals on ther 48 I looked at were black as well, so if they worked it would save on the cost of powdercoating after purchasing?!

yeah, I just thought it would be neat to be able to make those parts work, I am going to find out when I go to the shop today I am going to see how much it would be

Very interested to hear if this works. Sadly though parts from the moco are usually expensive.

The 48 mirrors and hardware do work on my 07 DX. I got they parts guy at the dealership to let me try them on the lot. I haven't ordered them yet but I am seriously thinking about it. I don't know about the turn signal relocators. :D

god im confused.

what are trying to do? put 48 mirrors on a dx?
I am guessing th 48 mirrors are the same, or close to the same as what is on the DX, they are just inverted. So I am planning to reuse the DX mirrors.

The bits I want to use from the 48 are like a spacer and a nut or cap when I would flip the mirrors and move the signals. I want a clean mod, not to relocate the signals, and then flip the mirror and use a temporary nut/cap for the mirrors. Does that make sense?
