Always looking for new or used Uly parts. So hard to find. More specifically mirrors (for the moment). Any ideas for aftermarket, with the exact fit?

Also, how about suggestions to lower my X version as much as possible.

I'm a new Uly owner and did a bunch of research regarding the mirror vibrations. People seem to love the Aprilla everywhere I read. If you do a search for them, you'll find people recommending where to order from. I believe mine were $50 shipped for the pair, forgot where I ordered from though.

I do like them too, the visibility is improved in regards to vibration.

I lowered mine with originally with an XT shock, kickstand, and forks. Another way is with Lightning Long (SS) forks, shock, and kickstand, though you lose the external preload that way. It does drop the bike a little more than the XT parts though. Currently I have an SS kickstand, custom shock, and 1125CR forks on my X.

Thanks for all your info. Just ordered the Aprilia mirrors. Will be interesting to tackle the lowering. Or maybe I have to look at something else (style/type) to get more footprint on the ground.

Installed the Aprilia mirrors and they look awesome. Much better all round vision. Haven't ridden with them yet (vibration).
Now, back to the lowering issue. If anybody knows where I can pick up parts as noted by Phelan, I would appreciate that info.
Thanks everyone who has viewed this post.

I love those mirrors. They work and look much better than the stock lollipops.
