The mirrors suck on the 650, set up kind of like a BMW. Too low to use well. Anyone know a source for aftermarket mirrors? I like the setup on the 400.

I actually enjoy the mirrors on the 650. After riding my sport bike theres no vibration so the image is clear and the rearward view they provide is fantastic in my humble opinion. I'm 6 ft tall if that means anything in regards to there placement.

mirrors

I agree with Allan.. Of all the bikes I've had & riden, the Burg's mirrors are the most stable. No fuzzies caused by vibration. At first I was wondering about the low placement....but it works. Makes sense to look under your arms...instead of around your shoulders. Plus they fold easy..which is a feature I use all the time when I put my cover on.

Once the covers are removed from the handlebars, and the bars are adjusted, can the covers be put back on? It looks to me like any adjustment would cause the covers to no longer fit right???

Blind Spot Mirrors

I purchased a pair of mirrors designed for a Gold Wing. Don't think I got $46.80 worth out of them. I clamped them on to the top of the existing mirrors. I had to reclamp them so they angled out in order to get more coverage than the original mirrors. When the engine vibration settles down and the road is smooth they work pretty good. The mirrors sit on a single mount within the housing and that is what allows them to vibrate at times. They are called Blind spot Mirrors, part # 09405, from http://www.electricalconnection.com

Convex Mirrors?

I like a lot of things about the 650 mirrors, but they do seem to give one a good view of elbows. Of course, you can just lift your elbow a bit and see fine. One thing I am going to look into is maybe adding a 1.5 or 2 inch convex stick-on mirror to the Burger mirrors. That way I might have a wider field of view to help me see there is something there. Of course it is still smart to swivel the head to look to make sure. All vehicles have their blind spots.

I am new to burgmans and I have to say that the burgman mirrors are better than any on any of my previous bikes

MIRRORS-AFTER MARKET
Check the Archives and the Accessories Sections. I saw some by a German Co. that attach onto the side of the windscreen. BMW dealer$ $ell them too.
Ye$, zey're expen$ive, vhy el$e vould beemervolk vant zem? They do work well. Those I've seen, the riders swear by. The Pasta Posse, on the other hand, love bar-end mirrors. Either is an option, as neither mount would have the dreaded vibeblur of Brittwin/Hardley fame. One other option is to get the controls off a totaled 400. Mirror mounts and all------The added advantage being; If you change your mind later, you've got solid mounting points for your farkles without the paint eating brake fluid leaks. (see Archives-Accessories-Bitch&Moan-Why my bling, Lord?, for examples.)
One word on the wide angle stick-ons. If you use the rectangular shape you may want to double the 2 sided tape. I had a set split on center, both within a week. Stress?

I did go ahead and install 2 inch convex mirrors on the upper outside corner of the 650 mirrors. They don't interfere with the regular use of the mirrors, and I think they help me see blind spots in adjoining lanes. They have been on for about a month now and haven't fallen off or broken or anything.
