My mate with a solid mount says he can see things very clearly in his mirrors.



And then he starts his engine …

These are working out better than expected. Not blurry, wide view of adjacent lanes, and they stay put. I have a good view behind me rising solo, but a passenger does obstruct the view a bit.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
