I have a question...what did the original mirrors look like on a 1979 CM400A? The mirrors on there now are tiny round and vibrate out of usefulness before the bike is out of the driveway. I've seen 3, 4 and 5 inch-round, oval and rectangles with straight and bent mounts... all claiming to be OEM. How do identify what really belongs there???

My 1979 CM400T2 came with the rectangular mirrors, as did my 1981 CM400T2. Both came with one broken, so I replaced the ones on the 79 with Yamaha Virago mirrors, kind of a teardrop shape, but, don't vibrate like the original ones did.

Original's are round that year, @4" IIRC. Yes they vibrate and are only good as a reference that something is behind you, usually the right one is the worst.

Yeah...the ones I have on there now are 3" rounds. Nothing short of a spot weld will keep them in place. And they vibrate like a magic fingers bed...(look it up kids.) Another thing to add to the list...the joys of 35 year old motorcycles!!
