I have the stock mirror on the right side flipped down but I don't get the visual I want. Maybe I need to mess with it. On the left side I have my speedo mounted so the mirror get's in the way and also has the visual issue. I'll mess around with the stock mirrors a little more.
Ohh gotcha. Sometimes you just have to bring the legs in a bit. I'm sure you will find the best view is at the strangest angle. I think its my right hand mirror that is turned almost vertically up and tilted towards me a bit that gets the best view
I had 34" wide bars and the mirrors showed a lot! It was better than having them up top because my shoulders blocked them there.
When I went to the narrow bars, the view is much reduced - about 2/3 road view, 1/3 of my hip... I can still see enough, but there's definitely a difference. I'm partial to the shorter (I think 26") bars so I'm willing to deal with the reduced view.
What width are your bars and have you considered going wider?
Hello, the stock mirrors on my Nightster will not do the trick flipped on the drag bar that I have. Can anyone suggest a set of mirrors that will work well flipped on a drag bar?
My stock mirrors work better flipped with drag bars than they did with the stock bars and the mirrors upright. My drag bars are kinda wide and I have a 1" spacer under the stock handlebar riser. Gotta roll your knee out doing full lock turns but rear view is awesome, and it gives my bike a really great look.
