How much are their Mirrors ? Over $100 per pair ?
When I first got my 650 I knew the mirrors were a little beat up.
The left more than the right. So I started to look for a nice pair of
after market custom mirrors. I found a pair I liked, Slim chrome tear drop shaped. They were $65. Got them home Tried to install them
and spent at least 2 hours trying to get them adjusted.
The mirror heads were very stiff. Little movement, And the Adjusting
nut to lock the assembly down would not hold the mirror.
You could get them set and tightened down but when you try to adjust the mirror it would break loose at the 10mm adapter.
I ended up snapping one of the mirrors glass trying to get them adjusted and gave up. I found a pair of OEM Vstar 650 mirrors in good shape to replace mine. 10 minutes out of the box and all was great with the world. They work perfect and do not move out of position. They were $30 for the pair.
I guess bottom line is : they may look great and cool but how do they function.... Plenty out there but pick and choose wisely
