    Definitely LaMonsters version. The Slingmods version has larger magnets meaning you have to eliminate one of the body bolts. Not a big fan of that. LaMonsters version keeps all OE body bolts. I have LaMonsters version and ride on some fairly rough roads from time to time. My mirrors haven't moved in 6 months.

    Definitely LaMonster's. I recommend going with the "two per side" so you KNOW the mirror is secure on one factory post. They work great.

    I have the 3 magnet per side setup and didn't have to remove any OEM attachment screws. The MM's work GREAT.

    I think Lamont only sells the (3) per side version these days. They won't come loose. No need for the (2) magnet version, even if you can find them.

    I bought Slingmods. Install was easy. No body bolts were lost in the process.

    AFAIK, Nope! The 2020's & on apparently have mirror mounts sorta similar to the F3's!

    Monk, you are correct, they only sell the three per side. For added safety add a zip tie thru the wires on your turn signal wire harness coming out of the mirror at the connector that slides inside the panel and you will be a happy camper. My wife just went on a two thousand mile trip just after I put hers on and she was very pleased.

    I just learned from Lamonster that Magic Mirrors won't work on a 2020 RTL.

    I put these small convex mirrors on my bikes and the Spyder. Properly adjusted, the combination of the main mirror, the convex, & your peripheral vision gives you 360 of vision without even turning your head. They only cover a portion of your main mirror where you typically see the sides of your body anyway. They cost about $6/pair most places.

    Just received an email from Lamonster stating he is working on a Magic Mirror fix for the 2020 Spyder and should be ready in a couple of weeks. Since the mirrors need to be removed often if you do your own work, I would prefer the magnetic fix over BRP's screw fix. Stay tuned!

    Hi KVRB, advanced apology for my novice question... I was to understand that the 2020 mirrors don't need to be often removed, like with prior year models...?
    I ask because I just had the dealer order the BRP bolt-on fix. Should I ditch BRP's solution and go with Lamont's?
    Thanks in advance,

    The mirrors do not need to be removed for routine maintenance, on the 2020. I like Lamont’s magic mirrors for the 2019 And older better than the rest. I have installed quite a few sets.
    We have a fix for the 2020 RT. Works great, much less expensive than BRP.

    Thank ya Sir.
    I saw your post in another thread. Actually, I referenced you when talking with the dealer. I 'think' BRP is going to provide the fix for free. There was a BRP TB on the shaky mirrors. Seems it's prn... if one complains, BRP sends the fix.

    We shall see. If the dealer tries to invoice for the fix, I'll be a customer of yours instead.

    Hi Truckle! I also am a novice and have not attempted any maintenance on my 2020 yet. I was referencing different videos I have been watching about 2019 & earlier models I have been watching for the last year. And thanks to cptjam for enlightening us.
