919 Mirrors

New to this forum, I'm looking for rectangle black mirrors to replace the stock 04' 919 mirrors. They don't seem to be wide enough, and black will match the bike better. I've seen alot of pics with aftermarket mirrors on 919's, but cannot seem to to find black.. BTW, 04' 919 is awsome..I would be greatful for any help..

Here is a link to the $23 dollar mirrors.

motorcycle mirrors, Kawasaki motorcycle mirrors, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, Victory motorcycle mirrors

I just bought a pair last week and imo i think they look way better than the stockers.

I'm beginning to feel that 919 owners are the KLR650 owners of the naked kingdom.

I bought some cheap bar end mirrors off eBay. I love em. But yesterday I went for a little ride and 10 minutes into my ride I look down at my right mirror and the sob was gone!! The Allen head screw must have wiggled itself loose. At least they were like $20

I'm going to bump this thread. I have a 2003 919 and I broke the left mirror and need to replace. I'm having a hard time finding a left mirror that will thread into the bike. On my bike the left mirror is threaded in counter clockwise. Is that normal for a 919? I've tried some cheap aftermarkets and purchases some stock mirrors from a guy on this forum and none of them will work.

Any suggestions?

I believe that the stock mirrors are exactly the same but go into threaded adapters for each side. I could be wrong but I know after I laid my bike over I used the right side mirror on the left side for over a year before I bought another set of mirrors.

I think they are both right handed threads. Is it possible that there is an adapter of some sort on the left side?

Correct. The mirror itself is left hand threaded. The perch, which the adapter screws into, is right hand threads, but the receiving end of the adapter, and mirror, are lefties.

Pic is actually of the right mirror, but that's the adapter.

I bought some CB1000R mirrors for our naked bikes here (919 and 599). They aren't cheap nor expensive. They are well built too.

No, that's the 91-03 Nighthawk 750 guys. They are often voted as "Naked motorcycle most likely to be seen with a milk crate or Dewalt toolbox on the back."
