Mirror mods?

Has anyone made any modifications to the mirrors? I'm thinking about moving them to the side of the faring or buying some generic bullet style for mounting on the faring. It looks like they will have to be kinda low on the side to be able to see under the handguards. I might even try mounting them on the Givi crashbar. I don't like the'Mickey Mouse ears' look of them now!

I just purchased a set of mirrors from a KTM 640. I am going to give those a shot. I will let you know how they work and post a picture of how they look.

I switched out the stock mirrors for a pair of chrome Emgos. They are rectangle shaped rather than square and seem to be more adjustable.

These mirrors combined with the risers I'm about ti install should allow me to use a bigger wider windshield and deal wit the last of the ari flow issues

Let us know how they worked out for you. I want to get a set of these too. I think they look really good with the V-strom.

If you choose to use aftermarket mirrors like the Emgosyou will notice that they are a flat mirror. Your field of vision will be less (even though the mirror is bigger) cause the stock mirrors are just a little convexed.

Complain to Suzuki about the poor field of view from the stock mirrors. Ask them if they will provide you with a free pair of Suzuki Burgman 400 mirrors. They stick out farther to the sides for a better view of the road behind you.
