Hi all
Its a bank holiday here in the uk , had my first real ride yesterday me and my partner covered 160 miles was impressed with it messing around with the gears etc, hopefully we will be going to the coast today.
Anyway my question is is it possible to have one mirror out and the other in?, you know us limeys drive/ride on the left, when I was filtering through traffic I tucked the mirrors in obviously both mirrors went in but I thought it would be a good idea if the mirror on the right stayed out. Cheers Steve.

I'm sure that with a little creative rewiring and the addition of a second switch you could open and close your mirrors individually. But that remark is made on the assumption that almost anything can be done if there is a will to do so. Lane splitting is illegal where I live and the thought scares me...as in what is to keep some nut from opening his door on you as you pass closely by just out of stupidity. I give cagers as little opportunity to hurt me as I possibly can.

Morning. I'm in London, from Amsterdam. Which mirror would I disable?, none of them. Pop over the water (by boat) & you'll wish you hadn't. Don't know what our sisters over the pond are saying about not filtering between cars, it's normal practice to all of us bikers over here, thus the electric folding mirrors are great. Yes, I had a door opened on my in 2006 and had a hole in the side of my Burgman to prove it, BUT, that was a reminder to me to be more careful too! It only happened once to me in 40 years, so that's OK.

Back to the mirrors, I use mine extensively. I also look over my shoulder when then are in, just to make sure.
The wiring/motor and relay are under the right hand lower fairing (sitting on the bike) and require a major dismantling to get to. One motor drives both mirrors via a bycicle brake type cable, so you can't separate them temporarily, only permanently. I wouldn't advise that....

Have a nice Bank Holiday Monday. Here in London, the sun shines.

Welcome Steve. Enjoy the Exec! A couple of weekends ago I took mine to Bristol, fast route M11, M24, M4 there and coming back went M5 and across the Midlands. Round trip of 512 miles. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the time went so quickly. I find the trip boring in the cage.
To your question: I am not sure why you would want independent control of your mirrors. You are filtering, so why the need to see behind you?

The motor and mechanical cables are for the wind screen only, each mirror assembly has an electric folding motor built in to it.

The mirrors have two wires (one blue and one black) for the folding motors. All you would have to do I think is add a switch inline with one of the wires going to the mirror you don't want to fold. Interupting either wire will stop the motor from getting power and folding that mirror in/out.

You can fold one in manually if you are so inclined.

Oops. I stand corrected (again).
Never thought that that motor was for the screen.
Sorry.

Is that possible? I mean I have pushed on one Exec's mirrors before but it felt like something was going to break if I pushed any harder to see if it would fold in by hand. I'm used to folding my standard Burgys mirrors in.
