I've seen a few cars that are fitted Honda CBR mirrors it's either an M8 or flat 2 bolt mounting plate so should be simple to make fit the scuttle.

GSXR mirrors are another popular choice.

I took the el cheapo ones, well, they are el cheapo. I had to get M10x1.25 nuts to fasten them, the mirror surface is not ideally flat, and the articulating joint is not great (tends to spring back to the middle position). But they look kind of OK and the price is right.

Is the scuttle stout enough to support that much mirror? It might wobble about a bit at speed even with a decent constipation plate behind. Just thoughts. What was the last word on the combo with the indicator in the end of it, is it ok for iva

Initially the mirrors were quite flimsy, but then I added ~70 mm diameter load spreading "washers" out of 2 mm ali on the inside, they helped a lot. These mirrors are not E-marked, but looks like that is not a requirement for IVA.

As for the side repeaters, I left them out for now. They must be mirror mounted or wing-mounted (and visible from the back) in order to pass the ECE requirements. Another silly idea I had are scuttle-mounted motorcycle stalks pointing upward.
