I'm picking up some arcrylic (plexiglass) today for the surround to cover up the backing for the mirror. When you break the glass out, there is a recessed area that is the perfect size for the Innovate MTX-L AFR gage to fit into very snug. I'll post more pics later of the recess in the glass backing and of where I'm drilling to route the wires.
I chose to do this because I don't want to cut holes in the cowling for it like most people do. This way, if I want to put it back to stock, I can just get a new mirror for $50.

Here are some more pics. First is the gage with the faceplate for the mirror done. Crappy pic, but I'll get a better one of it on the ski later. The others are of where I drilled the holes to run the wiring.
I took the storage hatch off and seperated the top (blue) part from the inner part to drill the holes and run the wiring.
One question: where can I tap into power to run the gage?

Here's a couple more pics of it done. I ended up using a clip on the end of the power wire to hook directly to the battery for when I'm tuning. I read that you shouldn't keep the O2 sensor installed because they don't last long when they get wet. This way, I can block off where the O2 sensor goes and unhook the gauge when I'm not tuning.

I gotta say, I really like the gage mounted there where it's easy to see. I'm not crazy about having them mounted down in the storage lid or that area where you have to look down to see it. I've done a few rides with it now, and really like the location.

Looks like a great idea. Thought I might mention there are some new FZR mirrors on ebay if you don't want to mod your own.

I started on my mirror mod.......sure beats taking up the glove box space, and is easy to see, remove, and return to stock

I don't think I mentioned it, but the plexiglass I used was actually part of a smoke colored wall hung file holder. Once it's on against the black internals of the mirror pod, you can't see through it and it's semi-functional as a mirror.
