650 mirrors

I'm looking at (pretty sure I'm going to buy) a 2015 650. The OP took off both mirrors for some reason when he bought the bike and now they're gone. What are some decent mirrors and where on the web can I get them.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

I broke the mirrors on my 04 in a get off and bought a cheap-o pair at the local cycle shop for $20.
Google 'replacement mirrors' in the little box at the top of the page. You may find lots o' info.

Some folks like the real Aprilla mirrors, nicer looking and supposedly less buffeting. Of course, more expensive than Chinese ones.

I'm just amazed someone would take off both mirrors and not replace them with something. Wouldn't live long around here without them. I use 4 counting the little round convex ones in the far top corners.

I bought these and I'm very happy with them. They cut way down on the buffeting.

I put on 2013 Suzi Gladius mirrors, with mirror extenders. They are sleek, aerodynamic, and with the extenders are pushed out of immediate view with no wind noise or turbulence.

Two wheelz for realz!

Those look perfect and the price is excellent!

Add some extenders if you find they don't give you the field of view you're looking for. I also liked the extenders because it lifted the mirrors up.
