    I have a new seat cover for a MNS if it helps

      Curtis,
      You can get a nice re-pop on Evil-bay for less than $20 (proper threading)

      BikeMaster Stainless Mirror Yamaha Reverse Right
      https://www.ebay.com/itm/BikeMaster-...53.m2749.l2649

      It is not identical to Yamaha OEM but it is pretty darn close. Just purchased the left and the right BikeMaster verisons for my SR project. (the link above is only for the RIGHT)

        Hi Curtis

        You could also check PartsnMore fir mirrors. I picked up a set for my 78 from them and they look identical except the tiny yamaha logo on the plastic backside of the mirror was smoothed over.

        If you only need a seat cover, I bought from Dis-covers and it looks as close to OEM as I could find

              Thanks for the replies.

              DuWayne, Thanks for the offer. I need the whole seat for a modification but will be saving the cover and foam in their original form. The stock seat pushes me too far forward and I want to get one customized on the original pan using the original cover and foam as a pattern.

              Kurt, Thanks for your suggestion, I have a nice original Left mirror and hope to find one for the Right. You know how some people can be with originality.....

              Brian, Thanks for your input as well. My Right mirror is functional, just fugly!

              cajun31, Thanks for the links as well as for responding.

                How would you feel about 1980 model mirrors? You can still buy the OEM 1980 mirrors. Not many will know the difference.

                  Marty,

                  Thanks for your suggestion but you know what a PITA I can be about original parts. It's also why I asked about a right mirror only. I have a good left one and a crappy right one. Good glass and stem but the piece that holds the mirror is a bit toasty. BTW I finally lucked out and found the electrical gremlin that has been haunting me for over a year. Just blind luck. I was pushing and pulling wires behind the right side cover and a twist lock connector fell apart right in front of me! Broken locking tab. A very small piece of Gorilla tape yeilded 135 miles of running the crap out of it without problem one. Back in business. It's one of my top 3 favorites.

                    When you go looking for a new mirror, the ‘81 XS850 has the same one. So does the XS650 ‘81 to ‘83.

                      The 1979 special mirror has the clamp on the stem to mount the mirror and the 80 special has a cover where the mirror mounts to the stem, correct?

                      Thanks for the cross reference Marty.

                        No, I believe the ‘79 and ‘80 Special have the same mirrors.

                          All my Specials, even the XS750 have the same mirrors.

                            I think Radioguylogs and jetmechmarty are right on the pre-81 specials, they are the same. the 79 and 80 has the sliding clamp on the stem that you are referring to. The change came in 81.

                            I have a few of the later OEM non sliding clamp types that I believe came off of an 81 and 82 that have the yamaha symbol on them, but they are not in perfect condition.

                              I believe I have both the seat and mirror you're looking for. I'll get some pics and get back to you this weekend.
                              I have a regular stock seat and the high back, if your still looking, from an SH.

                              1979 XS1100SF (stock-euro mods planned)
                              1984 XV700L Virago (to be hot-modded)
                              1983 XJ750MK Midnight Maxim (semi-restored DD)
                              1977 XS650D ( patiently awaiting resto)

                              Sometimes it takes a whole tank of gas before you can think straight.
