I had the couch potato 1050 and put extenders on that. Also put them on the Bonnie SE and the Scrambler. I have yet to fit them onto the T120 Black - bought the oval mirrors for that in the hope that they'd stick out more, but they actually stick out less (at least I got them cheap).

The Tiger1050.com forum (it's called the Tiger Sport forum but does both). And I used to have a steamer and remember when the new girlie came out and the steamer nickname started.

I've been on the Tiger 1050/Sport forum for the past 12 years, never heard that name, the Steamer & Girlie are old names & obvious but I can't see any link to couch potato? Please explain?

Couch potato = opposite to Sport.

Hmmm, very strange,  :187: a secret name conjured up by owners of old models. Thanks for letting me in on it, I'll keep shtum, eh.  :492:

Hi Paul, sorry to trouble you. Got meself a pair of these. Not alot of time to spend on fitting as just had hernia op but have you had a set of these ?
They come with no thread on the stems of the mirrors but do have this extra bit that is wrapped in a rubber sheath & has thread at one end & a slot at other end for i guess the stem of mirror to slot into.

How does this all work.
Will the slot grip the stem of mirror as it is screwed into the handle bar ?

See pics I just took for you, hope this helps. Excuse them being caked in copper grease, these are the oem ones I took off. Can you see the split collet (caked in c/g) that tightens on to the stem as you tighten down.

Hey Paul that is really kind of you to explain and post pics. Thank you so much that really helps me

I was winding the fitting down but it didnt seem to tighten on the mirrors stem and then got tight for the fingers. May have to spend bit more time on it so I get it right cos the more I tightened it the more of the rubber surround pushed up at the top which would capture rain unless I took a Stanley knife blade to it and trimmed it off

Again massive thanks

Alan :020:

Just push the rubber up out of the way until you've sorted it. Take your time and check it against the one you take off.
