EMGO knock-offs of 2001-2005 FZ1 mirrors, you'll be done for ~$25-30 each, be able to see behind you and you'll get used to the look.

Seems like a lot of work to save $25.

Are you sure you'll be finished by next month? Good luck. The Knock-offs are cheaper than the mirror extenders that I put on my '13.

I just mixed epoxy and hardener waited 24 hours to install, mine is doing fine. I ordered a new pair ( my other one is scratched) from Partshark 7 weeks ago they are finally being shipped to me.

I have a Helibar Riser Kit and have my bars indexed IN 1.5" on each bar so now I can see out my mirrors and NOT see my shoulders now. I don't like the looks of those other mirrors.
