space-ghost JDS, those look like the Element doors I picked up. I havent mounted them yet, so if anyone wants to take a look at the doors let me know and I can snap a couple pics to see the mount points etc...

I have tube doors with Bikemaster 6 inch mirrors and leave them on permanently.
I am sure that you can add a bracket on the tube doors to fit whatever bike mirror you like to use..

Schmo I went down this path . . . I used a pair of stock Harley mirrors that I had laying around in the door hinges with the doors off, but ended up buying a pair of tube doors and didn't want to get hassled by the man, so here's what I did . . . I welded a little metal sleeve like the ones that you use in the the bushings on your shocks to the tube door and bingo, slide the Harley mirror into the sleeve just like you used to on the door hinge and you are all set. The great thing about this set up, is at least in my opinion, the small Harley mirrors look better than the stockers on tube doors, but most important, it's less hassle, no removing the mirrors and all that nonsense . . . pull the doors, put on the tubes and go!!!

JDsDream These are the doors that Geoff is talking about. They are predrilled to use your stock mirrors. 10 minute install.

Geoff@Bestop The reason the Harley mirrors are so neat is that they go right in the hinge post for the doors. Unfortunately, so would your tube doors, so you'd need a different solution. It probably wouldn't be too difficult to come up with a solution, though. Most tube doors have a mirror-mounting spot already set up - ours is drilled for factory mirrors, and comes with a big spacer so you can use the original bolts even. I think competitors products are about the same. So you could bolt something on for the Harley mirrors.

daggo66 If you are putting the Harley Miirors in the door hinges, then yes you will have to come up with something else if you run tube doors. I used the RR relocation kit. You lose 1/4 to 3/4 of your passenger mirror when the door is on, but it's fine when off. It's something I can live with for the ease of having the mirrors already there. I thought of the HD mirro option, but didn't want to hunt them down and put them on when I took off the doors.

Harley Mirrors w/ tube doors?

Hey guys. Quick question. I'm thinking about getting some Harley mirrors for when I take the doors off. If I decide later that I want some tube doors, will the Harley mirrors work with the tube doors or will I have to come up with something else? Thanks!
