There's an aftermarket item that is basically a metal extension base that bolts on under the base mount of the mirror. I haven't bought any yet. I've been looking at other bikes with longer stalks to see how they might fit the 650, but I don't want the mirror sticking out so far that I'm bumping them on things all the time. I even thought about getting the mirrors that clip on to the ends of the grips.Dave,
I've been addressing the same problem on my 650r. I managed to adjust them by tilting the arm back further (towards the rear), and then adjusting the mirrors. I can now see a panoramic view of everything behind me. I haven't actually ridden again since doing that, so I'm not sure if the problem is fixed.
Also, I went to Walmart and picked up some of those small, round, stick-on mirrors and I'm going to try those to help with any blind spots.
I was thinking about attempting to place some type of rubber shim under the base to extend the arm out further, but I haven't tried that yet.
My riding buddy is having the same issue with his new Katana.
I don't know, Tina. I think at least as many people wear FF as halfies.Great idea, but unless they adapt it to half helmets, won't sell in this country!
So you're telling me I can't start a fight this morning? :mrgreen:I don't know, Tina. I think at least as many people wear FF as halfies.
I think the issues will be price, fit, and quality. Functional quality products that are affordable do well in this country.
I wondered about that myself. Headlights at night might be an issue too.Looks like it has potential. I wonder what effect the suns reflection has coming through the rear window when it's on your back. Maybe a little blinding as it hits the viewing mirror. I'd like to try one out.
Wow, I wouldn't want to ride my bike without mirrors on it, I am way to dependant of them. I gotta know what going on behind me as well as anywheres else. jmoI dont think that that is a bad idea. Of course, the first model is never perfect but give it time and Im sure they will have a good helmet rear view system in place. Thats pretty cool. Alot of people around here eliminate their mirrors on the bike and it looks **** good like that but they cant see behind them so this would help with that. Id buy one.
I've been waiting two years for these to show up in the states. Somehow, I think this is destined to be one of those Euro only items. I'd sure like to try one though.Depending on the demand from retailers and distributors, the rear-view motor-sport helmets are expected in the shops by early 2006.
