Genuine Suzuki OEM Mirrors & UK

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know where I can buy a new mirror for my K9 in the UK?
Don't want any aftermarket stuff - the real part that the bike shipped with.

Thanks in advance.

If only there were websites on the internet where one could order brand new OEM parts. Such a service would be invaluable to the motorcycle community.

Re: Genuine Suzuki OEM Mirrors & UK

You will probably need to buy another K9 with OEM mirrors and then switch them over.

Re: Genuine Suzuki OEM Mirrors & UK

There are plenty of honest-to-god Suzuki UK based parts sellers, ex. Robinsons Foundry. Suzuki GB sells clutch kits and other parts directly on ebay, see here. But I hope the OP realizes that the mirrors are not actually made by Suzuki. So unless that Suzuki part number sticker is important, you might be able to save a bit with "aftermarket" mirrors and get the same part. See post #9 and following here. It will take some hunting around that you may not want to go through. BTW, I suspect that G-Formance is a middleman, not the true manufacturer.

Note that in my experience the Suzuki mirrors aren't perfect. The actual mirror seems to be prone to developing corrosion along the edges.

Re: Genuine Suzuki OEM Mirrors & UK

Robinsons foundry is the one I use.
Great website and nice people to deal with.
DOn't be so dismissive of aftermarket though.
I rebuilt a neighbour's GSXR600LO twice (he can't stay on the thing) and both times it was aftermarket mirrors.
They look liked original, fitted like original and worked like original.
Nowhere near as dear as original though....

Ok,I'll bite: why not use a Suzuki dealership? It's the most obvious place to find an OEM Suzuki part

What else were you expecting, some magical non-existent store to pop into existence when we have websites that have done this for decades? In the time it took you to write your original post, you would have already found OEM mirrors for sale by various OEM venders. All with one Google search.
