I am new to the sportbikes. Everybody is saying that I should not expect from the sportbike's mirrors to work the way they work on the cruiser. Why? What's a reason for that? Weight? Aerodynamics? What's wrong with using them as a car's sideview mirrors?segue00 said:You guys are using 'em like a car's side mirrors.nfloor
Just move your head forward to look behind you through the mirrors! Simple as that.
I know your kidding, but I have to throw in this story for others:mwellbel said:hey...you going far to slow if you have to worry about whats behind you!!!nfloor
I've actually seen that in a cycle world being tested on an FZ6! I'm gonna go try and find the issue. They said it worked pretty good, but a glance over the shoulder was still needed for changing lanes.segue00 said:Anybody want a wide-angle rear camera mod?
davepl, when you get your bike, check back, I'm sure someone knows where you can get the bar ends for the particular bike you get, hell, you might find someone on SBN to give a pair.davepl said:I find that the mirrors are not far enough outboard for me; I have to lean over to see what's on a particular side. There doesn't seem to be an outward adjustment as far as I can tell.
Anyone else notice this, and perhaps have a suggestion?
Dude you are a regular 007, I need that damn rader detector though, highspeed, thanks for the pics.skeleton said:Jim Karam:
I stand corrected. After taking a second look, I found the manufacturer:
"ZEFAL - MINI CYCLOP MIRROR"
I did a quick Google, but couldn't find this older model. I only scanned the first 3 pages of retailers. The newer model, which is larger and with a different fitting is listed everywhere.
The newer, larger model is:
"ZEFAL - CYCLOP MIRROR"
Find it at:
I previously used this one:
"PYRAMID - PRO BAR END MIRROR"

Here are some closeup pixs.
What's that last picture you ask? Oh, that is my new Escort Solo-S2 radar detector. Took it out for a try last night. When I am in a tuck position, the detector is right in my face - where it should be. Also, it has a earphone jack that plugs into my helmet headset.
You get the point? Mirrors for the rear, radar for the front.
