I am using the FAR mirrors (same as DP items).

Here is a 'sticky' I made some time ago.

They now take PayPal, making the transaction much easier and cheaper.

I just bought some from www.moto-science.com The guy was quick and helpful. He sent 4-5 multi photos with different mirrors and I simply chose the one I liked best. He has the FAR mirrors as well.

Hope that helps

Can't comment on the mirrors yet, but I just ordered a set of the "classic" model from Henri at moto-science. He picked up the phone right away when I called and was so helpful and knowledgeable that I couldn't help but place an order.

I will post a review in a couple of weeks.

If you are going to get aftermarket mirrors, you might also be interested in a set of these. I can now actually see what's behind me past my shoulders.

Put a set of FAR's LED and lead shot in the bars. My view is now rock solid. Make sure to really tighten the adjusting bolt really tight. Got loose my first ride and the wind pushed the mirrors back. Looking back i probably should have greased the threads so as to get the nut tighter.

I installed the FAR "classic" mirrors a couple of days ago and I am happy to report that they are, indeed, rock solid. I have never seen a more stable mirror on any bike. I hated to part with that much cash for mirrors but I'm glad I did. The improvement is massive. Razz

Guys, thanks for the tips on mirrors. I think I'm going with a set of CRG lane splitters[have one leftover from a monster] Tried it over the weekend and I could't make it shake! while the 2 stock mirrors are having fits. Turn signals are another matter, While I am a little chicken to bore holes in the plastic, I am considering Clear alt. Monster front signals, might clean up the front of the bike a little. Still thinking this one thru. kw
