mirror extenders

Can someone point me to some cheap mirror extenders or make a rec. on new mirrors.

I found a thread where someone was making them. I sent him an email but haven't heard back. It was an old thread so maybe they are no longer being made.

Found some retail for around $50 but that seems kind of steep.

I have these as well, very pleased with them. The left mount I got the "farkle" for the RAM mount ball.

For $50 i'd go the extra $10 and get the KTM mirrors. these are the round ones, 11" long.

Mirror extenders

I bought a set from a guy down in the san bernadino area but they do not fit on mt 07 dl650 mirrors . Real nice with v strom etched in aluminum extender . 1 paid $25 + $4 shipping . I will accept $25 to paypal that includes shipping to canada or united states ,

Shudda put on sooner

The OP for this thread asked about cheap extenders, while Rick's weren't cheap, they were worth putting on my bike. Can't believe I waited so long, they have been sitting on my shelf for a rainny day. It rained all weekend and it's freaking cold so I put them on. Forced myself to ride this morning even though its 38F (I have no heated gear) and I got pretty cold but I was able to see much better. Extenders are sort of like the fork brace, should be included with the purchase. I liked getting extenders vs replacing the mirrors as it retains some of the factory look and you don't wind up with something to sell/throw out.
