Gen 2 Kits for Mirrors with Closed Style Brackets.
Some manufacturers make brackets that do not open all the way up, but instead have an almost completely circular opening with a slot. These brackets get pinched down when the bolts are tightened to clamp onto handlebars. Motogadget and Rizoma are two such manufacturers and we call this type of bracket a “closed style”. Unfortunately, these clamps will not work with our original designs because the outer diameter of the mounts is too large for the clamps to slide over to reach the slot. RhinoMoto has started releasing what we call our Gen 2 kits to work with these mirrors. The bodies are two pieces so that the mirror can slide onto the smaller diameter section from the rear. A dress ring is included so that when assembled these kits look exactly like the original kits. The use of the dress ring is optional and the mounts are usable without them if desired.
All Gen 2 kits also work with open clamp mirrors. They are compatible with all of our spacers and adapters so that we can easily produce a Gen 2 version of any existing kit.
Please contact us if you do not see a Gen 2 version of a Gen 1 kit in the store as we update all of the kits with their Gen 2 options. firstname.lastname@example.org
Original Gen 1 Kits for Mirrors with Open Style Brackets.
The original design of RhinoMoto mirror mounts was based on CRG mirrors. The bodies of these mounts are a solid steel piece machined out of billet. Most CRG mirror brackets are a two-piece design that opens completely allowing the brackets to fit into the groove. Their Arrow mirrors are slightly different in that they are hinged on one side. While the bracket does not separate into two pieces, it does open up 180 degrees so that it can fit into the slot. We call both of these brackets “open style”, since they open completely up for installation, and they fit on our Gen 1 kits
