I was looking around for mirrors for my bike that I could actually see with and found these on the Duc web site. Section8Superbike can get them for me for less then 68.00 for a pair not including shipping. Any thoughts or opinions?

Black mirror with mini turn indicators
The new mirrors designed by Ducati still follow the usual construction philosophy, but also ensure improved functionality: the mirror still features integrated turn indicator but can be better adjusted and features a larger reflecting surface. The mirror is installed using one of the two original fittings on the fairing, it does not move, or show vibrations once fixed in place. The screws necessary for correct installation are supplied, together with a plug to plug off the original hole that is not used.

Mirrors look sharp, but it's kinda hard to imagine how they'll look on a 749 without a picture... With Ducati's setup, it's kinda hard to imagine ANYTHING other than stock...

Any thing that is longer would be way better. Th OEM ones let you see your armpits very well.

Well I went ahead and ordered them. I appreciate the comments. I am 6' 1" aand about 215 and see my shoulders and pits very well in the current mirrors. I will post pictures once I install them.

i'd like to see of pic of them after their mounted too. looks like they'll be more functional than the current mirrors, but in my mind they just don't look as good. it took a little bit for me to get used to the stock mirrors on my 749 and i'd say their not quite as bad as i'd read about them, but it does make it necessary to be a little more alert (...that tangent was just for me to justify keeping my mirrors). do you have the dimensions of the mirrors? i wonder how much farther out they'll stand?


it's psychosomatic. you need a lobotomy. i'll get a saw.

I emailed Section 8 and am waiting for a reply. It has been nearly a month and they still have not got my mirrors in yet Grrrrrrrr. Not that the riding weather has been favorable but I have the other mirors off in preparation. I will be happy to post pics, give dimensions, etc. once they hit my paws. Ducati is not known for being the fastest place for parts purchases.

They kind of remind me of mule ears.

It can sometimes take forever to get Ducati parts from overseas. One service manager told me that he had to wait over 3 months for a part once. I finally got all my new parts in a couple weeks ago (had to swap out the swingarm, long story) and am now waiting for them to drop off the bike.
