I've noticed the Street's mirrors only thread in from the top, where other Harleys can mount on the top or the underside. Makes that undermount a little more of a project. And yes, it appears it would hit the tank when turning. Has anyone come up with another idea that would avoid the extenders? I would think if I bought other mirrors, they would still have the visibility issue the stock ones do...
Maybe go with bar end mirrors? I've got a set on my bike, you just need to cut out the ends of the stock grips and any 7/8" set with expanders for internal mounting will work. Looks cool, and gives you significantly more rearward visibility.
I mounted the clamps about halfway up the angled part of the bar and the mirrors end up under the grips. It wasn't hard to find an angle where the mirrors both worked and didn't hit there tank. I can see much better behind me both directly and to the side.
