what type of mirrors are you looking for, the OEM ones that bolt onto the fairing or the ones that bolt onto the handlebars.

Fairing. Would like to be as close to using old holes as possible

PartsnMore sells aftermarket replacement mirrors for the GL1100 that mount in the original fairing positions: http://www.partsnmore.com/parts/honda/g ... bpage%5d=2 (near the bottom of the page)

I put them on my GL1100 and they worked quite well.

I bought aftermarket ones for my 83 Int and while the chrome/mount part seemed pretty good the actual mirror/glass part was crap.Looked like a chunk of mirror cut out of your bathroom vanity.Big difference to the OEM.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

I gave up on the fairing mounted mirrors - they kept moving on bumpy roads. I replaced them with Emgo models, but no better.
I found a pair of Honda oem handle bar mirrors on eBay and I'm much happier!

( gotta update my avitar .... )


Have a nice day! :)
