Mirrors for a DL650

What other bikes mirrors will fit on my 05 650? A Buell Ulysses? KTM Duke? I have not found an aftermarket mirror that I really like. Like alot of others mine are cracked at the collars. This also happened a few days after I bought the bike. The first time the dealer warranted them for me, but I doubt that will happen again. I'm also thinking about extenders to move the mirrors out a little bit. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks -- Greg

KTM Duke mirrors work great, but you need thread adapters to fit. They're fairly spendy but I'm very happy with them, more durable, better looks and MUCH better visibility.

any generic 10mm left/right thread mirrors work. That is all the generic brands your dealership will have.

I used the round ones. They are fairly well made and work well. I tried 4 other types of mirrors without luck, but these work without staring at your shoulders.

KTM Super Dukes, as MZBuckeye sayz, you need 10mm to 8mm adapters. Glass is flat, so you lose a wee bit of view.
