Where to get mirror extenders?

OK. Had a good ride today. Couple of hundred kms. Twisty roads and the young filly loved it. She wanted to gallop but I could only let her trot. Soon gal, soon.
I did notice no matter how much I adjusted the mirrors I could not see the car behind me. So, extenders. Where to get in Canada? Also got a bit of shoulder ache after a while (that's the old fart's body talkin) so I am thinking risers are in the plan now. Also where to get and will I have any probs with the cables coming up short?

+1 I put AdvertureTech mirror extenders on my wee a few weeks ago - what a difference it made!

Still asking about Canadian distributors. The shipping and other charges double the price for me.

I installed the Suzuki mirror extenders and they work great. Ordered through the dealer, $87 and 100% improvement.

Same deal here, extremely well made and work well. Unfortunately, pretty pricey.

+2 on AdventureTech. Send them an e-mail and they will happily "Parcel Post" or whatever it's called in Canada, your items through regular mail. I wouldn't expect shipping to be more than $10 or so. AdventureTech ships worldwide and will try and find you the cheapest option.

If we are talking about the 2014 Vee2, I do not see where AdventureTech is selling mirror extenders for this model. Whether or not the mirror extenders for Vstrom 1000 prior to 2014 will fit I do not know.

We have A Vicious Cycle here in Canada. I have Oxfords and Barkbusters on the way from them. I will call and see what they say.

Do the Barkbusters fit the new Zuke? There's not much real estate available on the bars for mounting virtually anything.

I'd be interested if they fit as the Suzuki hand guards are akin to a screen door on a submarine - keeps the fish out. In this case, deflects the wind but will break the first or second time the bike goes down. And if you're riding in the woods, they surely will.

I had the Oxfords installed though. I use them every morning and they work great here on Ice Planet Hoth.
