Hello all
Ime a recently joined member though i have had a 1000r for a couple of years now and am currently putting another one together to make 2.
My point is i dont know if members are aware but the wing mirrors from the early VFR750's fg fh fj and fk fit the 1000r and have longer arm improving the view behind.

I certainly didn't know that Aardy. That's a great tip ta. I had to put the mirrors from a 1098 onto my 749 for the same issue. Thanx again.

Wow, 1098 mirrors are longer huh? My 1098 has the shortest and worst visibility mirrors of anything I've ever ridden. Even worse than the SuperHawk!

Thanks for the tip Aardvark.

Hehe! I know what you mean Jamie - I followed a 1098 into work today on my ZX-10 (Tomcat) and it brought back fond memories of my elbows....... I think my replacements may not have been from the 1098 but same shape and ducati performance anyhow. Do you own yer own gas station????? OR did you rig it with an in flight refuelling probe or sumthin???

Well I heard those 1098's have a fairly poor range? That has put me off them as some of the ducati forumites quoted like a hundred miles on a tank....... I hate gas pumps!!!!

Nah, mine will go 125 miles on a tank. That's not too bad, my VTR only gets about 135-140 miles. In fact, the 1098 gets better mpg! I don't mind filling up every 3-4 days, so it's no biggie for me.
