never mind what they look like on the bike, be more worried what you can see in them I know peeps that changed to smaller teardrop mirrors then complain cant see behind them

The stock mirrors are the perfect size For visibility and are quite durable compared to some of the cheap aftermarket ones you may find.. mine were chrome and wanted black mirrors, what I did in the end was buy a can of plasti dip and painted them, came out great and still in good shapes after a year.. just an idea

I was wondering about that when I changed out mine. I got those cheapo' blade-type mirrors off ebay because I like the shape (and they're cheap). But as it turned out, the convex of the new mirrors is greater than the stock so I don't even notice much difference in the rear view. I might even venture to say that I can see more than I could with the stock mirrors because the stocks didn't have much convex shape at all.

I have the Scythe II mirrors, and I don't have any problems with visibility.

I've tried different mirrors and I find they either vibrate and can't see out of them clearly or they put and rust within a year or two.

I swapped from stock to the Arlen Ness Rad II teardrops. They are definitely smaller than the stock mirrors, but if you adjust them correctly (to align the most glass with the rear horizon), you can see pretty well rearward. I don't feel like I've lost any functionality with them. No vibration or rust from them, and I've had them on for 3 years now (not much rain riding though).

Sorry, I don't have any pics without my messy garage in the background. I can post some if you want but they're not the best from a "how do the mirrors look?" perspective.
