Hey Ya'll

I did a search (really) and couldn't find the answer to my question. I want to get rid of the stock mirrors, yet want the new ones to be functional. In other words, I want to look at either the left or right mirror and SEE what's behind me. (Just being a safe rider and aware of all things around me). Suggestions??
I do have the skull custom paint job and the Irate Skull chrome radiatior cover.
I looked at some skull mirrors and they seem toooooo small to actually work. I appreciate any input from any of you folks. Thanks in advance.

I got the Kuryakyn Scythe Mirrors on mine. You can't beat the looks and they allow me to see behind me.

I have the bikemaster mirrors and like them a lot. They are solid as a rock and you can see really well out of them. Tried to find decent pics of them.

I know this is off topic,

Chopped, have you considered changing the flames on your tank to red? Then match the fender. Your seat and wheels bring it all together.

I could see out of mine just fine, once I finally figured out the right tweak for it... Read sig for type of mirrors they are...

If you want to stay some what with your skeleton theme you should check out Image Motorcycle Products, Designers of the Eagle Talon and Salute Kickstands They have these mirrors and some new ones that have alot more detail that I saw at their both at the David Mann Chopperfest. The guy skulp his products by hand. I am going to drop my bike off here in the next month or so to have him use it to create kickstands for the Fury's. The craftmanship is superb.

I thought about it, but I don't think it will look too good on the Matte Silver. I'll probably just keep them silver for now.

Could always put some red highlights of some kind to make the flames pop a little more, something light and subtle, but not over bearing.

Chopped;

What E-pipe's on your bike (the one in the pictures)?

Cheers

Hands down, I have the best "FUNCTIONAL" mirrors made. Muth Signal Mirrors. I purchased them from Directline. I not only can see everything behind me, but also the signal indicator lets cagers know my intent. I am a new rider and although I intend to "show" my bike and realize that the asthetics are not "chopper" I choose function! Unfortunately they are pricey.

your mirrors look very good to me and I think they are "chopper" enough.

Funny you should mention about the cagers and knowing your intentions. I've been riding since I was 13 and had a bike licence for 26 years and I still consider the visibility of my indicators to other road users. I always balance the looks against the function in my opinion it is the best way to go.

BlueDragon;

I'd have to agree; of all the whiz-bang, stylized, marginally-functional mirrors that have shown up on the forum so far, I think that yours achieve the best integration of form and function. I particularly like the feature that the in-mirror indicators alert the rider that his/her flashers are still on; I don't know how many times I've forgotten to turn them off 'til I was five miles down the road! That little green LED annunciator light just below the speedo pod just doesn't get my attention every time. In future, I need to avoid paying you too many more compliments; I don't want you getting a big head! LOL.

Cheers

Just installed the Scythe mirrors yesterday.....they REALLY dress the bike up...look better in person than the pictures.

These are the same mirrors I have, good choice. Maybe in the future, Kury will offer the LED's as an option on them. I would have paid more for that.

As a brand new rider, I insisted that my mirrors where functional. I called Custom Dynamics to ask them (since they sell both Muth and Kuryakyn signal mirrors) which was the best quality. Two reps said Muth hands down. The quality of the chrome, mirrors and signals are superb! Funny about turning your signal OFF! I rode with my husband on his Raider and constantly fussed at him about not turning them off. When he rides my bike he ALWAYS turns them off. LOL! When I was learning to ride, before I put the new signal mirrors on, he would follow me around on his bike and we have intercoms....I heard "Turn off your signal all the time. LOL!
It is nice to know that I didn't kill the chopper theme of the bike with these mirrors. I plan on showing the bike beginning next month! Thanks for the comments!
Your Sister In The Wind,

Did you guys who bought the scythe mirrors need the metric converter to install the mirrors?

I have those mirrors, they do look good.....mine want to collapse at the ball joint towards me when I'm doing about 80. I got some of my daughter's clear nail polish and brushed it around the joint area...works ok.....anyone have another solution to keep them from collapsing?

Serge, Yes you do need those metric parts to make them fit properly. Woodenhorse.....I haven't had any problems with them moving, but I "only" ride at 79 MPH....JK.....no issues yet.
