On the way home from work yesterday, my right mirror was wobbling a little .....a few minutes later and I felt it against my wrist....it was falling off :mad: Turns out, it broke on the stem just above the threaded nut that holds it to the mount......broke off from vibration I suspect...sorry piece of s#!t!!!!! I have the kuryakyn scythe mirrors with the sycle....

In the market for new mirrors now.....the oem's were too narrow when mounted on the bike (I just saw my shoulders/arms with them)....anyone know a good looking mirror that sticks out far enough on the bike for a big guy to see???? Here I go, dipping into my C&C seat money again! :mad::(

Was it the mirror that broke or the adapter that screws into the bars and the mirror ?

I would put the stock mirrors back on for now and get that seat. Then worry about getting new mirrors.
As far as the type of mirror. I cant help you there. But believe me. The new seat will take all your mirror worries away.

I would definitely check out the demon cycle mirrors, how can you go wrong for like $30, I got the grim reaper ones, Smiley has a picture of them on his bike and I have a picture of them real close up fresh out of the box that I have on my personal laptop that I'll be able to post a picture of soon when I leave work.

*** Added a picture of Smiley's bike with the Grim Reaper Mirrors, those are the ones I just bought, I can't find the picture my wife emailed me, one I find that I'll attach that also***

I agree that they look similiar, but not exactly alike, plus they are a lot cheaper but good quality according to Smiley and even my wife said they are nice, especially for the money.

I have the same ones on my bike. I like them and cant go wrong for the price. If when I wear a jacket in the fall, I will put on my mirror extensions I got off ebay. I picked them up for like 25 bucks. I got them in case my reapers stem was too short but they work fine. I like that they are slightly tinted too.

The right mirror stem broke just above the attaching nut for the handlebar....the mirror was loose for a few rides - I wasn't too bothered by it since the wind moved the mirror toward me and I just adjusted the mirror to see. Was gonna put some jb weld on that one too (I jb welded the left mirror)...I was riding home and I felt something touch my arm/wrist...it was the mirror (stem and all) slowly falling. I let off the throttle, grabbed the mirror and had to use my left hand to get the bike to the left shoulder in the gravel - loads of fun!! :( The mirror never hit anything (bike's never been down) and I don't lean on it or anything.....had to be the vibration that caused it...maybe along with some type of internal flaw in the construction???? I have wide shoulders and need mirrors that extend out more than the stock ones....

So, they need extensions for us bigger guys?

You would need to check your state laws concerning that, in TN I believe that it said I had to have the left side mirror, nothing about verticle or horizontal on the license plate <I got a horizontal to be safe>, and nothing about turn signals <which I have>, but like I said it all goes back to what your state laws are.

*** I tried to look around for you, but just like it is for TN there is no dedicated website to motorcycle regulations, so what I would suggest is to call the local police station and see what they say if you are interested in riding without mirrors, myself I would just purchase and install a set, good luck.

Yes they do, I couldn't see shit through them. Even after turning the handlebar and putting the brake\shift levers in an awkward position.

Serge, you gotta learn to quit beating around the bush!!! :D Just kidding....thanks for your take on them....I definitely want something I can just glance at and see what's behind me without having to lean over out of the way....
