Mirrors on 200 MkII RS, others.
« on: September 19, 2019, 11:33:45 PM »
Need some input from those who recall. I'm having a difficult time discerning mirrors on both the 200 MkII RS, and the 350 GTR. I've viewed lots of images. Just too many with one, or none. Can someone shed light on what they originally came with? Was it one, two, or none?

            iagree, the original red GTRs came with one mirror, fitted L or R to suit country importing, although may have been 'handed' by person unpacking the machine. Not sure about later 350s or other models.
Unspoiled by progress.
I'm so glad I grew up in the 60s & 70s. I did so much stupid stuff and there's no record of it.............Anywhere !!

One of the best sources for originality are the factory brochure and advertising pictures.

The parts manual will also tell you how many are "required".....
Here's a couple GTR pics. On the early GTR it's hard to see the mirror, but it's there.

Thanks Pup. Yeah, I've looked at the Brochures, along with lots of other published images. As said earlier, I see lots of variations. Not a huge deal. Thanks for the examples. I actually own a poster of one of those pics.

Thanks, everyone. All of this points to one LH for the US Domestic import version, as set up by the dealer at assembly, which is how I would present it to show, while still using both mirrors for practical riding. Again, thanks for taking the time to respond. Always appreciated.
