I've got the Bar End Mirrors that aren't as easy to use as they are good looking. Considering adding a new set of mirrors. What works best and also looks good?

I have been eyeing those ebay tomok style mirrors for a while. I am not a fan of how bar end mirrors stick out. If I could mount them reversed (right on left, left on right) and have them work, I'd probably pick up a pair.

There was a pretty cool set that somebody had posted a while ago. They had bought them on ebay, and they mounted in the same spot as the stock mirrors, they were low rise (and adjustable) though.

Ya call this sticking out...???

I prefer the Clean Look above the Fly screen, but searching for these doesn't feel natural; Maybe over time it will....

Yea, I do :p They just look weird to me sticking out past the bar end. If I could flip em around so the mirror was within the lines of the bike, I would use them. Just don't think there is; a. Enough clearance for my hand and b. Not sure they'd actually be functional that way.

I have had them for about a month. The Quality is very good for the money. The only thing about them is that the bolts that come with them are a bit long and you need to add washes to fill the gap. No big deal tho . I like them a lot

I have been pretty happy with my Bikemaster set-up so far. Similar shape to the stock mirrors but with a forward offset; makes them a bit more functional. As a bonus, this particular set also had LED indicators.

Is having 4 mirrors on one Bike a Cluster f*** ???

The thinking is the Bar End Mirrors would only be focused Directly behind me......:blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7:

I've seen it... stock mirrors plus bar ends for blind spots. To each their own... I prefer to turn my head and look... I suppose if you couldn't turn your head, that would be the setup to go with!

Takes some time to get used to but I prefer bar ends now. I don't use my mirrors much, prefer to rely on head checks.
I prefer the Look, but (sort of) stretching to see them feels unnatural. I find I don't know as much about what's behind and beside me with them. Maybe I need more seat time, or another two Tomok mirrors where I naturally look....:icon_shaking:

Steve, I bought the CRG Arrow bar end mirrors a few months back, and agree they take a little getting used to, but I really like them now-the slightly convex shape of the mirror surface gives a really good view behind and to the sides, but does make everything appear smaller than the stock mirrors. Also, like Beck, I don't rely too heavily on mirrors anyway-head check always works for me. I know Rizoma makes a non bar end mirror that looks killer-probably pricey, though...

I think that with the right mirrors, a quad mirror setup (bar ends AND conventional stalk mounts) can actually look kind of cool. Kind of like weapon pods on a space fighter.

Has anyone used Aprillia's yet? I had some on my Versys and they were perfect. No vibration, and they went out at a good angle, unlike the stock ones which went up a ways first. I might try some on this bike.

I like the rivco signal mirrors in black, easy to wire in and have led arrows in frt. & red led indicators on the edge of the mirror side
which are visible from behind and remind you your signal is on since they are not self-canceling.
