Received and installed the NRC Mirror block off plates. They are plug and play and they are bright just like their fender eliminator kit.

That said, this is the most poorly designed, assembled and sold motorcycle accessory I have purchased in the last 10 years. I would not recommend them to anyone and if I weren't a cheap *******, I'd buy the DP block offs and nix the front signals.

The CRG arrow mirror is just shy of completely useless. When positioned where it is functional, it interferes with the OEM clutch level. With shorties, it will not be a problem.

The look is cleaned up and it' that much closer to being track ready.

shouldn't the mirror be below the handlebar?

I do not like the look of NRC accessories and probably won't be purchasing any of their products.

I tried it below and line of sight is completely blocked by my wrist.

Throttle side requires the CRG bar end adapter.



I agree about NRC products being a major disappointment. I accepted the FEK because the signals are bright and it's subtle in appearance. These however standout because their on either side of the windscreen. They look like ****. VERY clearly hand assembled.

The aluminum DP plates are only available in matte silver which I'm not a fan of on the red and black bike. I guess we'll see what else becomes available.

Don't like the look of those NRC turn signals or the bar end mirrors on a superbike. I guess I'm one of the few who like the look of the stock mirrors and if I were to track it occasionally I'd either remove them for the day or tape them.

I was dissapointed with my NRC tail tidy. Not a good fit or quality. I like the Rizoma mirrors, but not enough to spend the money on them.

As we all know the mirrors are mostly useless so I like freeing them up. New York State requires a mirror of any kind so the CRG is the bes looking option for me.

I enjoy the stock mirrors. I do wish they could fold in like on the 899.
Over the last two weeks I've been traveling with the bike and it frustrated me that they don't fold!

Me too although the mirrors we have are quite narrow with the width of the bike compared to other sport bikes. I came from a Gixxer 750 that had folding mirrors and they were definitely needed because they stuck out a lot. But once folded in, I was a lane-splitting demon >:)

Good looking out. I was thinking about the Kyle racing titanium ones but I instead picked up a stock set from @NYCman to turn down in a lathe

I put on the NRC block offs same as you and also the fender eliminator. I love the mirror blockoffs with signals. Absolutely love them. I bought the 1299 fender eliminator for my 959 and... it didn't fit although its claimed it does with the name being '1299/959' in the item name. I did custom machining of the part and got it to fit after 8 hours of part developing revision. The NRCs are plug and play though which is extremely nice.

1299 / 959 have the same tail, what didn't exactly fit?

There's not much material from the get go. I'm guessing after 8 hours of machining you simply hot glued the LEDs in place lol

Has anyone found a decent looking/functioning set of mirror block offs yet?
