Sorry about the sh#t-pics. Tight space in garage. A couple of observations...
- these offer more vision that the bar-ends that were on bike when I bought BUT not as god as stock mirrors.
- spring-loaded flip is FANTASTIC for lane-filtering.
- glass quality is great BUT I am disappointed  that the matt black finish has really perished. Now a dull gray'ísh in parts. These were on my Zephyr, always parked indoors, probably only 2,000kms outdors in 3 years...
- appearance really suits the bike, more so than round mirrors ;-)

Isn't that super narrow? I'd mostly be admiring my jacket if I had my mirrors like that. :)

yeah, narrow but visibility still OK with some careful  fine-tuning and position adjustment.
I'll probably try the factory fitted one day soon, as these are looking a little too weathered, and the allen key bolt holding them has started rusting (I lost the caps covering them)!!!

Do you have acf50? Or a tiny dab of another grease. Brush the rust out and coat it to protect.

I installed motowerks mirror extenders to get beyond my arms. It's been great so far. Maybe not so much in the looks department, but I don't mind because the safety benefit is huge for me.
