    Yamaha rear view mirror

    Yamaha has released a center rear view mirror and was gracious to send me one to review. Here's the link on Shop Yamaha:

    https://shopyamaha.com/product/detai...center-mirror?



    It uses a 1.5" clamp sold separately made by Assault Industries:

    https://shopyamaha.com/product/detai...ult-15-single?





    The clamp I have is the one you will receive, not the Assault Industries pictured on the website.



    Now I've been using the cheapest center and side mirrors I can find, which do a fine job, and usually require me to mod them in one way or another to suit my needs, or sometimes I just deal with their drawbacks because they were cheap.

    Right off the bat, after opening the Yamaha mirror, I noticed some of the benefits without even installing it. It has a long stalk so you can mount the mirror forward and/or low. The more forward you can mount your mirror, the less neck strain you'll have and the better peripheral view you'll have. The lower you can mount it, the less the back of your roof will obstruct your view. The long stalk allows you to tailor your preference. The other thing I noticed is the mirror had some heft to it, which I know is going to help reduce vibrations. Everything seems high quality about the unit, from the mount, to the glass, to the aluminum stalk. Yamaha logo is a nice touch. I haven't removed the protective film yet in this picture.

    Angles of adjustment





    My current mirror's view



    Yamaha mirror



    I didn't like the Yamaha mirror at first because I could see in more detail what was directly behind me with my cheapie as it has less concavity. After driving with the Yamaha mirror for awhile I actually prefer it now as I can see my blind spots with it and the view overlaps my side mirrors. I always like my mirrors configured so that my side and rear view mirror's view overlap each other.

    One thing I forgot is that the Yamaha is lower in profile, so it doesn't block my front view as much as the cheapie rear view mirror.

    Vibration test. As predicted, the Yamaha mirror has NO vibration whatsoever.



    Once again thanks for Yamaha giving me the opportunity to review.

    I would love this mirror, but $80.00 is to much to try and convince my wife the sxs is something it "needs"...
    Edit. Obviously my wife allowed me to get the mirror for her sxs.

    The Assault industries mirror that Yamaha used to sell has a much nicer ROPS CNC clamp like KDT1970 shows above.

    Not sure if there is a big price difference between the two or not but they have a lifetime limited warranty.

    My only wish would be, to be able to install it in the center of the roof line.
