Those indeed look very nice and I should be able to take them off and reinstall them quite quickly.
Not to mention they are cheap  :002:

Edit: I just put in the order, thanks guys!

My mirrors have turned a greeny colour. I don't think they were like that when I bought them.

A cheapo anodizing job will do that in the sun.

Mine are still like new almost a year after fitting. But my bike is almost never parked in the sun or left outside in the rain.

Got it thanks. Those look nice. I think I'll order a set. No vibes?
No vibes at all. Rock solid.

I ride mine every day come rain or shine, so maybe that explains it.

The mirrors were delivered a few days ago, I finally got round to putting them on today.
Quality is a bit mixed, the hinge on one of them is a bit loose and the main bolts are too long: I couldn't get the bolt in all the way, so the left hand side mirror wouldn't tighten.
It's only about half a millimeter too long, so I put a blacked out washer between the mirror stalk and the mount and that solved it (the right hand side already had my phone mount acting as a spacer).
They do look much better though  :002:

Yeah i cut down the bolts about 5mm then added some extra nylon washers to get a nice tight fit.

I had a set passed on from Rockman, installed and moved them 25 different ways/ angles but still couldn't see past my shoulders being to narrow so back to stock and more adjustments, better now.
Currently en route to Zed9 in MA for him to try.

I got them today and installed them. They are much more narrow than the stockers (which are only effective at their ends), so we'll see what happens when I ride with these new ones. I'm "fairly" slim so I may get by with them. If they don't work out....I'll just send them on.
Awesome packing job. 👍 Look out for a letter in the mail. 🍻
