Harley Mirrors

I have heard of using Harley Mirrors as a viable option when going doorless. Are there any particular specs to be aware of? or will any of the threaded stem type work?

Better yet, does anyone have a picture of them in use? I would like to see which style you chose and how it looks.

I just ordered a set of black long stem from the local Harley dealer, picking them up tomorrow. Part# 91910-03B

This is what I use, and they work fine. I bought both sides, and they are adequate. Don't vibrate very much if they're snug, and I can actually use them for their intended purpose.

Here is what I did...DIY brackets and a pair of long stem Harley mirrors. The door hinges are too low for me and the passenger side was completely useless. My DIY brackets get them back up to a good position.

Barry gave you the H-D part # for the driver's side Tapered Long-stemmed Mirror, which I use, also. No mods required to install and it comes with a locking washer. Snugged down tight, it doesn't vibrate as much as my OEM mirrors on the doors. Here's your picture:

OK here is what you do...run down to your local hardware store and pickup a tee hinge. Drive the hinge pin out and use a dremel or hacksaw to cut two tabs out of hinge plate (red lines). You will need to open up the pre-drilled holes slightly to allow for the windshield bolt to fit. I shot mine with a little bedliner to give it some texture.

I leave the brackets on all year. They are small and do not get in the way of anything else.

LOL, JKGirl! That's my buddy Wingnut. He EARNED that name...

And it was "Barrie" not Barry who gave the part number in his post. Mea culpa, sorry for butchering your name Barrie.

OH9JK -

Your two posts about mounting the H-D mirriors on the A pillar made the subscription for this year pay off. THANKS!

No problem glad I could help out my fellow JK brothers (and sisters).

Part numbers for the tapered mirrors like I have:
91909-03B - Right
91910-03B - Left

Shop around prices are all over the place on Harley parts. If you have a local Harley shop stop by and ask if they have any take-off mirrors laying around.

I went a different route: salvage yard Ford truck mirrors. Very cheap, very easy, and almost perfect for the application. Pics below, and the writeup here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/my-...ng-156556.html

I'm definitely copying this idea. Love the Harley mirrors on ours but the passenger one is too low. Would be nice to raise them both. I have the long stem mirrors so I may use a lower bolt position though. The pics posted look like the short stem mirror (I have one of those we don't use).

These are the same ones I bought. Used them once but thinking about just getting the RR quick disconnect mirrors. If anyone is interested in these Harley mirrors shoot me a PM.

So I picked up the T-hinge at Home Depot for about $6, but am wondering how you got the hinge pin out. I tried prying it out with a flat-head screw driver without success and am now contemplating trying to dremel it out.

I used a cold chisel and drove the pins out. You could also dremel or hacksaw one of the heads off and drive out with a punch.

Subscribed.
Planning to order the left mirror later this week. Gonna try it off the stock hinge first. If I don't like it I'll promptly be doing OH9JK's mod.

Thanks for the reply. I'm also thinking I could use the hinges to fab door hangers in my garage.
