Only had my VI for about a month now and loving it! I want to add some side mirrors but need some recommendations on what you guys like and don't like. Thanks!

I blame Rob and James for making me need new tires & safety harnesses.

Where I ride, side mirrors would get hit by brush ALOT! Do those of you that have them find this to be a problem? I would anticipate that they would frequently need to be re-adjusted. I would love to have them but I am doubtful that they would offer much utility if they are pointed in the wrong direction.

I got the Seizmik but one of them broke before it even got hit with brush. However they have a lifetime warranty

My rear-view mirror was a waste of effort. But I like my back-up assist camera mounted to the back of my roof (6" monitor where the mirror would go). I see what's behind me now.

Mr Skrillz makes a good point. You can get a relay pigtail, backup lights and a backup camera for less than mirrors on Amazon and it is awesome.

hmmm didnt pay any attention to the warranty part, I will have to check that out.....I think thats the mirrors i have, got them from SuperATV around $50 or so. Mine were fine until a metal T post took the passenger side mirror off there may have been a good bit of Busch Light involved that night

Seizmik side mirrors here.


Yea, they do fold in when in tight brush, but it's not a big deal to push 'em back out. I'd rather have them do that than break..

I mounted my Seizmik mirrors inside the cab for 3 reasons:

- I wanted to have my cake and eat it too. I had to choose between my Seizmik doors or mirrors as one interferes with the other unless mounted inside
- No worries about branches and adjustment getting issues from impacts
- Less wind resistance



Seizmik has great customer service btw.

I just received my Seizmik from Amazon. Price was right and I'm happy with the quality and look. I'm not sure if they are in their final position but with some seat time I'm sure to get it sorted out.

Just thought I would point out, the Seizmik doors have a spot to mount their mirrors on the outside.


Also, I agree, their service is great.

Do you have any photos of the set up?
What is needed to do the set up and where can you purchase the equipment?

Ready?

Bought a cheapo back up camera on Amazon (Pyle Cam-7" Monitor). Mounted the camera to the back of the roof.



You will need a mount to hold the screen where the rearview mirror would be. I ordered the Ram Mount X-Grip.



It's a low volt deal. Just find a power source and follow the instructions that come with the camera.

Impressive, yes?

Does it come on automatically in reverse?

No. I bypassed the reverse wiring rules. I can't remember what I did, but it wasn't difficult.
