What mirrors for EDFD's Green Machine?

Keep in mind, they will be black. I also have wider Renthal bars, so any bar end mirrors are going to be sticking out a little farther than on stock bars.

I'm going to pull the trigger this weekend, I think, so vote fast!

Thanks

For visualization purposes: here is my bike now:

If I don't get bar end mirrors, I'll need help picking out bar end nubs. I think the Renthals take a special (small) size.

I hope it doesn't annoy everyone, when I use a forum poll to pick out my parts.

The last one worked well for my turn signals.

My vote would be for the Dynamics. The Rizoma mirrors are top notch. I like 'em real well.

If I recall, you bought those from me.
I liked the Dynamics, crystal clear and no vibes, the only downside is that they are a little on the small side and of course cost.
Either of the Rizoma's would work great, IMO. Can't deny the quality, but dang they are pricey.

I am now running CB1000R mirrors, so far I am pleased with them and they have less vibes than the Aprilia Tuono mirrors that I had tried

For anyone who's bought Rizoma mirrors, do I need to purchase an adapter (not talking bar end, but standard mount)? Or will it come with the proper threaded adapter in the box?
Also, for anyone with Renthal bars, what bar ends would you suggest?

The Rizoma mirrors are sold individually, and I also had to buy the adapter mounts as well. Can't recall if those were sold in pairs or not.

I had to replace mine recently due to a parking lot accident, dude backed over my bike. Anyway, the mirrors and adapter are sold seperatly. I bought mine a PJ's parts. Good price and customer service.

It has no mention of Honda, as far as adapters go.

I went to the Rizoma website to search for adapters, looks like they are included.
I selected Honda Hornet 900 on the Circuit 851 page and it says they are included. These mirrors mount differently than the Dynamics that I had.

Like morrow said, may want to verify with PJ parts and make sure.

It's cool man, I found it right at the top of their website.

I think I remember seeing that as well. I'll order by phone just so they can reassure me, though.

So far, I've got some Circuit 851's and some http://www.pjsparts.com/catalog/prod...1363{1}23{5}37

I had those exact mirrors and I don't think I needed any adapters. Both 919 mirror mounts are right hand threaded. Only the right stock mirror has a left-threaded nut I believe? So that when you push the mirror away from you, it tightens. But these mirrors just used a standard thread for tightening down I think.

Here is all that came with the mirrors when I bought them (and sold them):

I do think that 3rd post is the reverse-threaded one.

It looks like the circuits have a vertical mounting point, so that adapter would not be needed.
And it looks like Circuits are the winners. Gonna call Motovation and see if they'll match pj's prices before I order them.
I got a few things from Motovation last time around, and they did me right, but PJ's is $11 cheaper. Motovation will ship for free, not sure about PJ's, I have to sign up before they'll give me shipping quotes.

PJ's gets my vote. If I recall correctly, someone here had some credit card issues (as in info stealing) from Motovation (or one of their employees) a while back.

PJ's is awesome - I've received personal emails from PJ himself when picking cans for my T.

The Circuit's are nice - mirror has a very slighlt blueish tint, which I liked.

I adjusted the placement of the arm a bit after these photos, they look a little out of place, but you get the gist.

Ordered the Circuits last night (from PJ's), and some flush mount bar ends.
Left TN today, so hopefully will have them by the weekend.
