Has anyone installed any mirrors on a spark for towing a board or ski? What kind did you get? Pics? Do they work well? Any other info would be great.

Thanks

I installed them on mine and the wifes, they are for sale in this forum.

They work ok but you really have to look at them instead of just glancing.
Sarge installed some on his as well that are a different style.

Check this out.

I installed them on mine, looks great in my opinion. On the turns, perfect. On a straight drive, your forearm can get in the way. Do a search for mirrors on this forum for my pics.

Will drilling into the frame to mount those mirrors void the warranty?? I purchased them, but may return them. I have a 3 year warranty. I guess I could ask my dealer the next time I go in.

I just did mine a week ago. Got the mirrors from Walmart real cheap @ US$15 ea.

Small hole either side is all that was needed. Small dot of silicon and it's done.

Just measure up well beforehand. Measure twice, drill once!

Pic attached.

I've been trying to figure out how to attach a wide view mirror to tow a friend on a tube/water toy without a spotter for awhile now. Here in Miami if it doesn't look like a huge ass wide view mirror and just side view mirrors the water cops will be all over you. By law in FL it says if you don't have a spotter when towing someone you must have " the use of " a wide view mirror. It doesnt say it has to be attached to your ski. So... what I plan on doing is attaching a wide view mirror to a 1/2" piece of PVC pipe and attach that to a helmet so its right there infront of me where I need it while not attached to the ski. I need this type of set up anyway because I'm making the GoPro swivel mount ( youtube it, it looks awesome) that attaches to helmet with PVC pipe. One mount will be for the mirror that stays put and the other will be fore the GoPro that swivels. So.. that's an option, although unconventional, I think it will work. I'm also keeping a copy of the law on me and a receipt showing i ordered a WIDE angle mirror ( both laminted) incase the water cops try to pull crap. I've come to learn they are not too bright when it comes to all the laws on the water which is redic. I'll be posting pics and such when I get these things made. Good luck! :)

How is the view with those? I'm wanting to do the same but am curious if you can see someone behind you if you're towing them.

nice job. i suggest cutting out part of the packaging that says " wide angle " & keeping it in your Spark to prove it incase you get pulled over. In most states it has tao be " the use of a wide angle rearview mirror " for towing without a spotter. I've seen people with regualar side view rearview mirrors get pulled over towing friends here in Miami but I guess it all depends on where you live and how strict the water cops are :p In my book if you can see the person you're towing through whatever mirror you use, it should be fine.

Here a spotter is law regardless of mirrors. It sucks because not only is a spotter required but only 3-up machines are legal for towing. The law says you need a seat for the driver, a seat for the spotter and a seat for the person being towed in case of emergency. It sucks because I find the spark doesn't have enough to tow something with two people on board. Probably would be fine with no spotter.

wow that sucks cormac. i believe you have to have a 3up for towing here too ( mirror or not) Ive towed with a spotter and somoene on a tow toy no problem. A friend got on the toy toy at the dock and we rode 2 people on the spark out and back to the dock with them still on the toy... but the issue with 3 people on board is a 3up has a weight limit of 450lbs. 450lbs divided by 3 is 150lbs each on average which means those 3 people most likely have to be female or with a tiny guy. lol.
