Aftermarket Mirrors

Looking to add mirrors to clamp to handle bars. Want higher line of sight view. Anyone here added such mirrors? Any makes you like (or don't like?) Might you post a picture?

Thanks!

Search on the term "mirrors" in the forum search box.
Many members here have added mirrors on the mounts already provided on the reservoirs. The threads on these have the details about thread size etc.

From what I've read you need the mirrors with the 10mm adapters, if you look in Ebay there's really dozens of those. Some members here have bought from cheap to expensive.

@DenimDude - you can find some common used mirror part numbers + links in the knowledge sharing document.
