I installed a set of Harley Davidson mirrors (of course I made sure they didn't have any "logos" on them lol) over this winter. They are the single best mod that I've done to my bike. Way better vision! No more big blind spots! They are more "convex" than the factory mirrors. I had a Ford Escape (relatively short length suv) driving along side of me last week and I could see the rear corner of the suv in the mirror and front bumper was directly in line with my body! Only about one foot out of my peripheral vision with my full face helmet on. I know if I didn't wear a helmet, I would have zero blind spots. Without moving my head I can see everything behind me also (the rear vision in the mirrors "meet" at about 10 feet behind the bike. Best $165 I've ever spent. Also can adjust "on the fly" my hand unlike the oem ones. Zero vibration and crystal clear oem quality glass.
P.S. I was washing and waxing the bike, so that's why the side cover and pillion seat are not on the bike lol
Danggit....I'm lusting for those mirrors now. Our stock, parts bin mirrors are a disgrace.Rod, no problem!!! Once you get them installed and go on a few rides with them, report back and let me know what you think! Glad I could help!!! Anything to boost the safety of my fellow riders! Cuz the oem mirrors suck......lol
Yeah, the stock mirrors are horrible.....I spent about 2 months of researching mirrors and adapters and thread sizes every night for about 2 hours each night. I finally came up with this setup and am very pleased with the outcome. Single best upgrade that I've done to the bike, I feel way more confident switching lanes and navigating traffic knowing that I'm not going to get surprised by a car in a blind spot.Danggit....I'm lusting for those mirrors now. Our stock, parts bin mirrors are a disgrace.
