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.

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.

Thanks for the input and those FZ1 mirrors are very tempting. But, I'm that DIY rider who likes to try to fix parts with what I have. That way when I really screw up I can spend twice the amount of the original cost. 👀👀(not my quote)" NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE CHEAPNESS OF A MOTORCYCLE RIDER"🙃

Ha, don't worry, I won't quit my day job. After spending the last 3 weeks sanding, priming and painting the wife takes one look at the mirror and says" WHY DID"NT YOU JUST BUY A NEW ONE". Well, anyway this mirror works and I'm gonna start folding my mirrors in when parked.
