Default Mirrors not much use.

Has anyone found a solution for the 2008 Vision's mirror location? Mine give me a great view of my knuckles. I was thinking of sticking some of those ugly round little convex mirrors in the top corners of each mirror to overcome this shortcoming. Unless it is not legal, I would think that a double faced mirror would have been a great idea.

It is slightly frustrating not seeing behind me.

this is my work around, best of both worlds ...stylish and practical


the mirrors look smal, but once you get the right angle, it's all gravy

What did you mount to? As far as I can tell my Vision doesn't have mirror posts. Most accessory web site exclude the vision when revealing which bikes the mirrors fit

got these mirrors from Arlen Ness, I believe the vision has a spot where you screw the 'bolt' adapter and then the mirrors...

Another alternative is the blind spot mirrors. People mount the directly above the existing Vision mirrors. I notice the mirrors didn't do much good when I test rode a Vision a while back too. Some people are the right height or something because they have no issues with it. I dunno.

Default No mounting available

Unfortunatly, on my VISION, the brake master cylinder and Clutch lever housing don't have mirror mounting holes.

lova
Saw another biker that put mirrors like yours and in the old mirror location he put in more speakers. Cool if you want the sound cranked up.

Once you get used to the mirrors they work fairly well. At first I couldn't stand them, now I have no problem seeing whats behind me.
