Default Mirror extenders

Anybody know of any aftermarket parts suppliers who can supply mirror extenders in the UK?

Default Mirror extenders

Not sure of any after market ones but Harley has some they are not really for the sportster but the right side fit my 2009 fine and the left side I had to grind some off the bottom to get it to fit

I just replaced my mirrors with aftermarket ones with longer arms. More costly than the extenders but have worked for over 10 years without a problem

Any Harley dealer or indy who has Drag Specialities or Custom Chrome catalogues, which probably means most, can get you pretty much whatever you want. If you don't have one local to you, try Pro Street Cycles, Custom Cruisers UK, Grizzlys Custom Bikes, Vtwin Mania, Hogparts, …

Or just buy what you want on eBay from the States.

Thanks all, I eventually bought some Harley items, I have a friend who works in a HD dealership and she got them for me at staff discount. Only slight problem is they are chrome and the mirrors are black but hey at least I can see more than my elbows now when I want to know what's going on behind me.

The extenders are not good. There are several companies selling long stem mirrors which work really well. Since you are in the UK you could try Customized Choppers at www.customizedchoppers.com. Mine are great.
