$30 a pair and 10 minutes of time, it all came out pretty good. I managed to make a pattern that is reversible to keep everything even in the exact place. Attached are the pics of the mirror case, the mirror mounted and the underside view of the Exo-Plastic where I mounted it.

Nice I put mine on the handlebars BUT I think yours look better. You took the top off and drilled through to install? Sound like a good winter project.

Here is the Link on GH which explains exactly how to do it . I didn,t like the mirrors on this link (And neither did some other people) anyway I found the Black ones by Emgo on Amazon- $14 for pair See Link below-

I really like the idea of mirrors from a safety perspective. I'm hoping that BRP or an aftermarket producer will develop some specifically for the Spark. Maybe some that fold in so you can still get a cover on the ski.

I think you guys have both done a good job with your mirror installs, they both look cool.

I like that Sarge's simply mount onto the bars which I guess means they're easily removable if you ever need to take them off. SniperDaddy's look awesome, but I don't love the idea of drilling.

You copped a bit of flack over on GH, Sarge -- I think that was unfair.

here the link to where I got my mirrors. walmart .com and search PWC Mirror. http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?ic=16_0&Find=Find&search_query=pwc+mirror&Find=Find&search_constraint=0


If you pull off the side panels (SOS Panel) so you can see your steering shaft, put you hand in there. You can feel that you are drilling through a piece of thin plastic that is not exposing any critical parts or wires. It is completely empty in there. I road about three hours today and they stayed tight and were not effected by the wake. It also allows you to use the stock sea-doo cover as well. No need to remove the mirror when placing the cover on. It literally took me 10 minutes to complete it once I marked where I wanted to place them.

Good info, DaddySniper! Does it make a nice difference to be able to see what's behind you while riding?

Personal preference and state laws will have some of us all debating this forever. In the state of GA, I believe that you have to have mirrors to tow anything, and for me, its added safety. I like to know what's around me at all times.

I spent the day on the lake today, and it was busy out there. I would have loved mirrors today. Thinking about doing this myself. UNfortunately, I don't think you can substitute a rider on the back of your PWC with mirrors in NH. Wish you could.

I'm not sure about the state laws either. I ride most of my time at Lake Martin or Lake Harding in Alabama. I figured I would play dumb and ask for forgiveness if I get pinched. I tried to ride backwards on a spark and almost lost my dinner. I'm not good at riding backwards.

I like Daddys Mirrors although mine give a Big Panoramic view I Think his Look better on the Spark!
I ride the CT river with a Lot of room and places where he wake is minimal because boats pass by and the waves diminish BUT on a busy Lake with Tubers and Waterskiers and everything else you need to have your head on a swivel or You better have mirrors? What vehicle does Not have mirrors ?
BRP needs to put mirrors on the Spark (Like All the other Sea Doos ) because we are not just riding around their little Practice course?

I just ordered 4 of these form amazon. $14 each. They are not shipping until 7/2, but I have amazon prime, so I'll have them by the weekend if things go smoothly, next week at the worst.

What did you do to seal the holes from leaking?

Just in case any of you want to avoid giving walmart your money.

RobNH,
Those are the same mirrors that I installed. I didn't seal mine. The area where I mounted them is not a water tight location at all. If you look in your SOS compartment, you have light coming in all around that area. I used a piece of paper to use as a pattern and mark the drill hole. Then do do the opposite side, just flip it over; It worked perfect.

Looks like I will be switching to yours also because they just look so much "Better!" Wish I had seen them before I bought 2 different sets. I can just unscrew my mirrors and leave the clamps on In case I have the desire to use them again or take the clamps off.

Grat thread guys I like them both. But if it came to push and shove I'd probably go with the handlebar mirrors.

Daddy- Where you have them they are at a slight angle. Can you adjust them so they are horizontal ?

Sarge, I couldnt get them parallel unless I mounted them down by my feet. The mirrors didnt have enough adjustment to allow for it. My placement was the best I could come up with that would be practical and allow the use of the stock covers.

Would you give a couple measurements where you put yours please, as a guideline.
