question about bar end mirrors
« on: September 02, 2007, 02:53:45 PM »
Do the bar end mirrors with the expanding metal plug thing, that rotate out of the way for storage, have any problems with slipping around, etc? They look extremely cool, I'll say that, but I've had some really awful bar end mirrors that flopped around. Any comments? I got these with the bike (along with the uninstalled vintage kit. The beehive tail light looks great, but the fit is sloppy, might need a little customizing)

I believe that the pivot to rotate out of the way, is tensionable, and the insert into the handlebars can be so tightened as to remain firm.

I can't see anything in the mirrors anyway with all the vibes....I'll probably git run over cause of that one of these days.   Neck is too old and stiff to do much rubbernecking..........dg

I have them and am very pleased for the price. yes they vibrate, but no worse than the stock ones did. And mine have needed tightening once after about 1,000 miles of use.
