    Has anyone used these mirrors before, and if so, how do you like them? I want to get rid of the 'stock front blinkers'

        I took a look at a set and they're a totally cheezy, crap product. First of all, they're too small. They look like they should be mounted to your kid's Big Wheel instead of on a proper motorcycle. Second, they look like they were made from recycled milk jugs... I don't know, I wasn't impressed.

        Maybe see if you could get a set of CBR1100XX mirrors to fit? CastorTroy (that would be Helen of Troy's brother; look it up!), has had a TLR and currently has an XX. Maybe he would have some insight?

        It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a bad example.

          Too small. Way too small.
          You can't see anything behind you.
          Plus, you have to angle them a strange way which pretty much points the LED blinker down at the ground so that no one can see the blinker anyways.
          It's a great idea, and if I could figure out how to mount LED's in my stock mirrors I would do it in a second. But for now, the stockers are back on. And a nice pair of flushmounts reside on the front.

                Surprisingly you can see behind you with them, there small but there not to small. the mirror is as long but not as tall as std.
                And mine arnt fitted at aweird angle,

                I have them in the fake carbon fiber.

                I have to have mirrors by law, there probably illigal as the mirror is convex or concave ( one or the other).

                I'd buy'em again but the carbon does look better then the straight black.

                cheers,

                          I've got the ones Marshall has, CF-look, laying on my kitchen table.
                          They're smaller than I expected but I won't judge 'em till they're on the bike, in a week or two...

                          They look pretty cool though...
