Darin.....get some side mirrors. You will definitely like them better and definitely be able to see more of what's behind youi installed the Polaris overhead radio and now I can't use my rear view mirror. I would like a rear view panel mirror but I'm not sure which one will work.
Does anyone have any experience with this or suggestions ?
I have the Kolpin side mirrors. Work great and break-away if you hit something or you can fold them in when traveling in tight places. The overhead mirrors just are too obstructed to be any good. Great for looking at the inside of your roof but that's about allWhich side mirrors work the best??
That sounds right. I have them but don't have the info on the numbers anymore...but what you are describing sounds right.. Congrats on your new Ace. Have fun and be careful,,,,,especially while getting used to it. Welcome to the forumFirst post for this old geezer! Sold my '03 Honda Rincon & just purchased a new 2014 Ace; much easier ride for a 77 yr. old! Just starting w/accessories & was wondering what part # is for Kolpin side mirrors you guys are using. I believe it is SKU-98315 which is 4.125 x 7.25. Could someone verify this works on the Ace? Thanks
I just picked up a "used" set on eBay for $28 shipped. Said they had previously been installed, but everything was there and they were in excellent shape.The cheapest I can find the Kolpin 98315 mirrors are $45, is that the cheapest or does anyone have a good used set for sale ?
I installed the Kolpin side mirrors last night. Man, are they a pain to adjust or what!?!? I think I finally got them to the position I like best but I haven't had a chance to ride with them so I don't know how well I like them yet.
I used them to replace a Moose mirror that is about the sameness size of the Kolpin mirrors. I had it mounted horizontally on the upper right location of the roll cage. It worked out well and pretty much acted like a rear view mirror in a car. I could see everything behind me pretty clearly. However, I thought it looked funny and that is why I decided to get the Kolpin mirrors.
From just sitting in the Ace and looking in the mirrors I'm not sure that I can see as much with the side mirrors. I'm a bit disappointed but maybe (hopefully) out on the trail the view will show more than what I see inside the garage. Otherwise I may reinstall the Moose mirror back on the upper right corner of the roll cage. LOL
