Don't know what the mirrors are like there, but the Australia ones are square, ugly and you can see SFA out of them!

These one's look (and sound) good. Wonder if I can get some 'down under'.

Hooroo

I'm replacing my mirrors with Suzuki Burgman 400 scooter mirrors because they extend further out to the sides. When wearing a motorcycle jacket with shoulder pads, the stock mirrors give a great view of my shoulders, but I can't see well directly behind the bike. This is why I went with the wider mirrors... so that I can easily see what's directly behind me as well as to the sides.

I believe that this is why people look for the Napoleon mirrors as their long model extends out further than the stock mirrors.

I just went to KTM Duke mirrors. They give a much wider field of vision and look cool too.

I will try to get a photo.

They are $22 each and you also need and adapter mount that is $14 each.

I got them at my local dealer with a slight discount for $70 OTD for everything.

The left and right mirror are different part # but the adapters are the same.

I ordered the KTM Duke II mirrors and adapters from KTMWORLD here in Georgia. The mirrors were about $22 each and 2 adapters were $14 - $58 plus shipping.

Wow

They look better than I thought they would

N I C E

So, do they do anything to reduce noise?

Some have speculated the noise is created by the OEM Mirrors

Do you ride without the windsheild fulltime?

I ride without the screen mostly now. I am working on a smaller screen and a mini cover to go over the mount area to act as a mini fairing.

I have not noticed any difference in buffeting with these as I don't use the stock screen. You don't get any buffeting without the screen but it is louder as you hear more wind noise.
