The glass mirror cracked on my st4. The plastic is all ok I just need to replace the actual mirror glass.

Where can I find a replacement piece? Should I just trace the shape and take it to a glass place? Thanks!

hmmmm...I don't remember what the "glass" portion looked like when I disassembled the mirror years ago. I know the colored plastic "fairing" snaps off. Then the glass is attached through the black plastic housing with some sort of pin or something. This allows the mirror to rotate back/forth and up/down. Not much help...but I don't think a flat piece of mirror will work. Technically, the outer edge is ground at a different angle to provide a "wide" (albeit blurry) view. Your best bet may be to source a mirror with good glass and crappy/broken plastic and use it as a parts donor.

If that doesn't work, just get the MotoScience mirrors. They are excellent and give a much larger field of view even without the convex portion on the outer edge.

Have a good one.
