Possible cheap aftermarket mirrors for our 919's?

Well i love my new 919, awesome bike, had it for two weeks and have just now stopped riding it and started lookin at it haha. Anyways like most people here the stock mirrors look kinda out of place.

I was lookin on ebay and found these mirrors... they look pretty good. and for 30 ish bucks shipped why not!

Those are kind of neat, cool shape. Something different from the round bar ends that I and half the guys here are running. They look a tad low though, might just be a really good view of your shoulders.

a view of your shoulders would be a mirror thats to close to the center line.

btw what kind of threads do the stock mirrors have? 10 or 8 mm... reversed threaded or normal or one reverse one normal?

A lot of time and effort went in the 919 Helpful Topics. You can find the answer with a quick look.

I bought these (from a different seller). Just search bar end mirrors on ebay and you'll find a ton. They are cheap, so you can't really go wrong. I love them. I can finally see behind me. Plus they look tons better.
