Rear-view mirror blanking plates

Hi,
I'm looking for some blanking plates for the rear-view mirror mounts on my CBR954RR for when I use it on the track.
I've seen some nice matt black aluminum ones by RRMotorsport pictured elsewhere on this forum, but the RRMotorsport web site has them as out of stock with no estimated re-stocking date. An Ebay search only turns up horrid chrome ones.
Do any of you use such plates? If so, from where did you source them?

Oh, and whilst I'm here, what about rear-sets? I'm currently using the standard rear-sets with the VFR800 gear-lever race shift-pattern conversion. I'd like to fit some race rear-sets to gain a little more clearance when cornering, but I need a set that keeps the race shift-pattern. Any suggestions?

The owner isn't much to look at but I hear he does great work. He may be able to help.

For rear sets, you'll see alternating posts for Vortex and Sato.

Not sure what your timeframe looks like, but I plan to have black anodizing available as an option in 3-4 weeks.

Re: Rear-view mirror blanking plates

I have these for my 954.

Mirror Block Off Plates

Fit and finish was great.

I just wanted something plain, no engraving or anything. These fit the bill.

Do you only make them for Honda's ? My buddy has a 04 Aprilia RSV and he could use a set for his bike for track days.

If you're going to be engraving after anodizing, be sure to use tungsten carbide cutters. An you'd better have a plentiful supply of them too.


Have a look here, third one down:
