I think you can determine with your particulars and my zip code of 92679 here  www.usps.com/international/preparing-int...tional-shipments.htm   send me shipping and I will be glad to pack it up and send it to you for $0 in honor of HRH

on another topic - any idea where I can get a used air box cover for my R5?  I am using a Uni filter, thinking perhaps I don't use a cover at all if doing so doesn't throw off the intake dynamics.  what you think?

OK.

What is approximate weight, including packing?

Regarding the R5 airbox lid, I would say that you definitely need it.

The original style was replaced during the R5 production run and the RD250/350, 1973 to 1975, used the same part. Keep an eye out on fleabay.com for one in the US - they come up on a regular basis, but prices fluctuate wildly, depending on whether or not a seller knows what some folks are prepared to pay for them! Also keep an eye on job lots, as one might turn up in one of those.

No small Allen screw
held in place with Shorter perpendicular bolt that gets drawn up by nut after inserting thru u clamp 
let me know if you still want.  Glad to send and part of this as I decided to go with aftermarket mirrors held by 360 degree split clamps cause I grew up in Chicago and need to always watch my back!

Thanks Martin, but are you sure that there's no small headless screw? It's not obvious at first glance - photos of mine attached, but after my allen key snapped off inside it and I failed in my attempt to drill it out!

No set screw
it scrunches up like in last pic. 
the nut and bolt wasn’t part of this, a brain fart
the mirror shaft measures 10mm / 0.383” so perhaps you can use the small shaft and associated bits to mount your?

Gr8uncleal, that set screw is drilled off center...  almost certainly is was added by a "backyard engineer"?

Thanks both.

Yes, could be a diy job. However, probably not a genuine Yamaha mirror, so could be a cheap repro.

Would the threaded part be threaded at both ends, like an exhaust stud? I'm trying to suss out how it might be removed. I have a couple of nos mirrors in this style, but without the threaded length, so they must be removable.
