Inexpensive 4" Universal Mirrors *pics*

Recommended Posts

I found these mirrors at the local stealership for only 7 bucks each so I thought I'd try them out. I think they look pretty good actually. They are a little larger then the dual stars, but that's probably a good thing. What do you think?

Here's what they looked like in the package. I bought the long stem ones.

Here's what they look like installed

I cut a little more than 2 inches off the posts so that they didn't stick out so far, but left enough room to be able to fully adjust them.

This picture makes them look like they stick out really far, but they really don't.

Just thought I'd share another inexpensive option. :confused:

Yes, they vibrate some, but I expected it to be worse actually. As long as you have the clamp tightened down good, they don't move at all. Seeing DIRECTLY behind me is all but impossible (especially since it's only 22 degrees out and I'm bundled to the hilt), but I think that's the case for any bar mounted smaller mirror.

How well can you see behind you? All I can see with the stock mirrors are my shoulders.

This is about what my field of view is...if I tilt my mid section to one side or the other slightly, I can see what's behind me, but in just the normal riding position, this is it.

I remember those mirrors well. I think I had them installed in my old Vespa for a while.

Great job on the install! Looks really good. :confused:

Overtime, I think those mirrors ended up vibrating loose where the stalk meets the mirror, in the back. They worked well enough for the short time I used them. :excuseme:

Only bad thing I can think of,for 7 buck's you know they are not stainless.So they will probably rust up a bit.

I'm going to make set of those. All I see is shoulders in my mirror unless I adjust them way out and then they are worthless for anything behind me.

I think my stock mirrors are pretty bad, but really I've never been on a bike that had good mirrors. Are those handle bar ones for the looks and that they don't break easily or is it because they work as good or better then stock?

I wouldn't say they work better than stock...but they look a LOT better than stock.

Yea, I wouldn't see why not. They just didn't have those in stock at the dealership I went to, so I grabbed the long ones and cut them.
