Inverted mirror process ...

So I'm in the process of inverting the mirrors on my street ... For well ... The obvious reason and i will post how exactly/what I've done eventually.

However to gain more space too accommodate my new mirrors so that they don't hit the tank I have had to adjust the handlebars more vertically therefore the controls are at an awkward reach ...

... I have since adjusted the brake and clutch so that they are at the normal angle. However the casing of where the indicators/full beam sit I can't seem to rotate back around towards me (as the switches are currently facing the sky)

Anyone had experience with adjusting this housing? I can't figure out if it's attached to the grip at all?

I think you will find that the controls will not swivel as there is a lug on them that locates in a hole in the handlebars?


I just brought some arms to relocate the mirrors a few inches further out from ebay for less than 10 and the problem with rear view was solved

Yeah I did consider this, but I think once all my gears on I still might have the same problem ... Plus I think they look better hanging low!
