Street 500 Mirrors

I recently purchased a Street 500. Being an inexperienced Rider - on my L's, I am noticing the vision is very poor looking in the mirrors. All I can see is my shoulders! Do I have them adjusted wrong or is this normal and should I look at extensions / different mirrors?

That is the one thing about that bike, the mirrors sucks and you will need to do the estender mirrors

I want something a little more stylish than the extenders. Anyone have some good recommendations? Sucked today being unable to see the lumber trucks coming up fast behind me.

I ordered the Tribal mirrors from HD. Saw them on another Street and they work okay without the extenders.

I bough this ones 2 weeks a go .
Black Mirror Extension Kit-56000042
they look good, and do the job well but , quite disappointing with the quality of the paint. I think they just paint it on top of the chrome version, so they peal quite easy , plus the screws than comes with the kit do not fit the thread in your bike (XG500 Australia version), so you need to outsource a new set of screws. OK I hope that helps.

$129.95, that's retail from HD. I'm having the dealer install them since the bike is in storage there.

These tapered long stem mirrors solved my issue with the original mirrors. I have no problem seeing back. 91909-03B is for the right side and 91910-03B is for the left side.
