919: Need stock mirrors

I'm looking for a nice pair of stock mirrors/stalks for my son's '03 919 - preferably with little or no rash.

Anyone got a set laying around they'd like to get rid of? If you're anywhere near Oklahoma City that's even better. (but, not a necessity of course.)

Thanks,
Steve

I got a nice set, stock are pretty much useless, get extenders or go with barend mirrors. Pm me if you want them.

I really appreciate the response guys. I found a pair and have them coming.

rabbott: They probably are, but they've got to be better than the stubby little pieces of crap that are on the bike currently. For the life of me I don't understand people who sacrifice functionality and safety for the sake of fashion. I just want to get the bike back to stock and then my son can do whatever he sees fit.

Thanks again for your responses.

Steve

If by stubby little pieces of crap you mean bar end mirrors, then you/he will be disappointed with the stock oem mirrors. For safety sake, I bought a pair of adjustable Oberon Performance mirrors. They are worth every penny, and I feel much more confident riding. I felt the stock mirrors were there for my own amusement, as they were only good for seeing how many bugs my chest collected.

Or as Rabbott says, put extenders on them.

No, I'm not talking about bar-end mirrors. The mirrors that are on the bike are extremely small little trapezoidal affairs on short, short stalks. Perhaps we'll find the stock mirrors to be not much better. But, they d*mn sure can't be any worse.

For the record; I've got absolutely no issues with bar-ends. In fact, I kind of prefer them (other than making the bike more of a pain to maneuver around an already crowded garage ). But, I'll leave that to my son to decided.
