DIY Mirror Extensions

Seen a lot a of people complaining about the mirrors of the HD Street. Went and checked out what was available in the internet but could not find one that was appropriate. So I decided to make them myself.
Attached some pictures for others who will want to do it themselves as well.

I think they actually look BETTER than the ones Harley sells!

I agree, I like the way it looks better than the Harley offered extenders. Nice job!

The text above is my opinion. Feel free to ignore it. I do.

Not bad at all! I may have to try that myself over the winter. I'm guessing that actually moves the mirrors out about as far as the 2" the Krator extensions give you.

I had Krators on my Street, and I swear by 'em, they made all the difference. On my new bike it had the exact same mirror issue; I immediately traded out the stock mirrors for the same long-stem tapered mirrors I had on the Street, but even then, it's not enough and I found that I needed Krator-style mirror extenders.

I looked on Amazon, they're going for about $38 now. But Google Shopping brought up an alternative, some site called "banggood.com" that offered what looks like exactly the same product, for the absurdly low price of $11.49, and that included shipping!

I just received the package today; will install tomorrow. Looks to me to be basically the exact same thing as the Krators.

For anyone going this way (Krator or banggood or whatever), I'd recommend swapping out the flat washers that come in the kit, for lockwashers like the genuine Harley kit has. Lockwashers make a big difference; with the flat washers I'd find that my mirrors would loosen up, but the lockwashers fixed that.

Looks good. Going to try it as getting extensions here is close to impossible

I went with the H-D extended mirrors which look just like the original ones, just with longer arms. A quick look at the bike and you do not notice them at first.
