Default Question about aftermarket mirrors

Hey all,

I'm looking to replace the mirrors on my ER-6n. I dont really want bar ends. I'm looking for a good sport looking mirror. I found these on ebay, but I know they are low quality so I'm just using them as a reference.
NEW SUPERMOTO RACING KOSO GT DIAMOND REAR SIDE MIRROR | eBay

Where can I find a high quality sport mirror? I'm willing to spend up to around $200.00. I'd like them to be as well contructed as the OEM ones.

Thanks

I have the Bikemaster lined oval tube mirrors in black. I got them because member raized has them on his bike and they look great. Anyways, they look great, and adjust up and down, so they wont be as high as stock. They do not vibrate at all either.

Here they are, and if you look around I believe I got mine shipped for $65 total.

I know that Tony was able to change out 650R mirrors for 250 mirrors. I'm actually thinking about doing this myself, I have tried both Aero mirrors and have had to return both models. I know that there is a thread already created about it.

I have done this mod, got the 250 mirrors from tony and I'll tell you one thing, it definately looks better. Doesn't stick out as much as the 650r mirrors and 0 vibration which is exactly what I wanted. Although I will have to adjust them still...can't seem to find a good view for not seeing my arms lol...That's kinda the only downside, tough to see around ur elbows...but still worth it

Shoot - yeah my bad, and good catch....don't listen to me. You could always go and purchase a 650R and this would work for you.

MAKE SURE THE MIRRORS ARE CONVEX!

MAKE SURE THE MIRRORS ARE CONVEX!

Yes, I said that twice on purpose. I bought a set of short mirrors for my 650R from Ninja650Shop (paid about $60 for them, it was my first mod), and the mirrors were not convex. Meaning, things looked A LOT closer than they should. If you don't get convex mirrors, then it will be damn near impossible to use them and they should be against DOT regulations if they are not already.

I still have them in the original packaging and never used them. I never even took them home from work, which is where I had them shipped. They are sitting on the shelf right over my desk...i'm looking at the little pieces of crap as I type.

I have CRG Arrow bar end mirrors. I can see everything vibration free. They don't work well with the stock bars though and the end result is quite wide.

Thanks for the advice everybody. I ended up purchasing the Rizoma Circuit 743 mirrors in all black.
