I'm looking into putting some different mirrors on my custom. Any recommendations on aftermarket mirrors? I don't want cheap plastic ones and I'm looking for black.

I have a '09 900 Custom with billet black blade rear view mirrors.
If interested I can provide more information on cost and where I got them.

I've had absolutely terrible luck with after market mirrors on my '05 1600. They've either been too small or too hard to adjust correctly.

agreed with the luck factor. I remember buying some Kuryakyn black scythe mirrors http://www.kuryakyn.com/Products/1460/Scythe-Mirror and they sucked imo. too small to see clearly when stationary...and when riding the vibration made them pointless. I know I just ended up rotating the factory mirrors 180 and called it a day. they don't stick out near as far, look decent enough...and are completely usable when riding.

anyway, that is just my two cents in a form vs function stand-point.

Well the mirrors I have now are cheap plastic housing and vibrated so bad that the glass actually fell off and broke. I'm looking into maybe Arlen Ness die cast mini mirrors.

Have you looked at JP Cycles and Dennis Kirk? Everybody needs to keep those two catalogs on their shelf - they have everything!

You need to decide how much your willing to spend and the shop. I saw a lot of mirrors I liked but they were too high. I had a stock one go bad so I had to change them. I got some cheaper ones for now and can always change them later.

Me personally like Bikemaster mirrors the best. Great quality all the way around. I went with the Old School Visor Mirrors. Here's a link to a thread I did on mirrors a while back with lost of good info and the link to where i got mine. Good luck!
