Mirror Threads

I'm sure this has been hashed, but I'm getting frustration trying to find a set of mirrors I like on Amazon. I found Harley-style ones I really like but they are 8mm:



Or these ones (more straight forward because they come with a bunch of adapters, but I'm worried they'll be too small (visibility):



So.... back to the first ones.... Anybody know if those would be adaptable to our bikes? I know it needs 8-10mm adapters... but the whole RH LH is what I'm unsure of.

And to answer "why?"..... I have a missing RH mirror. The previous owner dumped the bike and broke it off. I replaced the master cylinder mount and am going aftermarket rather than OEM. No offence to those that like them, but I always hated those rectanglish Kawi mirrors.

So Those particular HD mirrors won’t work, they are designed to slip through the clutch/brake housings and then are tightened down.

I did have some russ wernimont contour mirrors when I had my s and I used Harley to 10mm adapters for those.

All hope is not lost if you find a mirror that the bolt threads into the stem and is not a nut system, you can use Kuryakyn adapters.

Try this:

Those mirrors aren’t bad, but I ended up buying square ones. I’ll try and remember to post a pic when I get them on.... could be a month before they get here.
