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 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.

I fitted the mirror extenders yesterday. They work well. Paint quality is poor, but I can live with it!

What size Bolt and thread do you need?

What did you use? I have no idea the length or thread needed?

HELP!

Harley Mirror Extenders

Knock off version of the Harley mirror extensions are available on eBay for $12.99; add some additional hardware from Ace Hardware and mirror problem is solved. ((2) 5/16/24/1 button bolts, (2) 5/16x1/4 spacers, (8) 5/16 split washers.
