Default Arlen Ness Mini Oval Micro Mirrors

I just received a box of parts from Arlen Ness. I'm looking at the mirrors the Arlen Ness Mini Oval Micro, they look way to narrow for my taste but would look good on my bike, but I'm not sure how functional they would be. Is anyone using these mirrors please comment.

guess you just have to put them on and see what you think. You might have to tip your hand controls up or down to get more of a view.
When changing lanes never trust your mirrors turn your head and look

Considering those on my Hard-Ball also when I do the bars.. Something different from the pointy tear-droppy look.

I just put the Ness scoop mirrors on my XC.
Mrs 8 ball hates em, says they're too small.
Whenever I change lanes I ALWAYS look over my shoulder TWICE.
She noticed this and said "what's wrong, can't see with the new mirrors?"
Nope no problem seeing, just like to make sure some swift running cager didn't sneak up beside me and I didn't notice it.

Okay, I got the mirrors installed and I'm not happy with the look! Something is not right because they sit to low it's as if I missing and adapter or extension. The last pic shows some gauging into the assembly I'm not happy at all. Any I deals

if nothing else a washer would be nice at the bottom to keep from gouging. the reason i wanted these style mirrors is because they should sit lower to my hands, i have taller bars on.

You needed to put a washer under the right side , I have the scoop mirrors that mount the same way .....

Regarding that problem with buggering the reservoir cover, that's a problem on the Vics with any mirror that doesn't have a sleeve on its jam nut for the right-side mirror.

I wrote a lengthy DIY for adding Rivco LED mirrors on my site about a year ago ( http://www.billanddot.com/adding-rivco-led-mirrors.html ). Here's a cut-and-paste from part of that write-up. I'm talking about the sleeve on the stock jam nut here (and there's a picture and measurements on the DIY page):

This sleeve area has an outside diameter of about 0.58" (15mm) and is about 0.16" (4mm) deep. If you were to just tighten down the nut on the Rivco adapter — as I was doing, before I noticed this problem — you'd wind up buggering the top surface of this area of the reservoir housing, and you would not be able to solidly lock in the stalk.

Here's what I did. I bought some washers at my local hardware store. It turns out that it's not hard to find them with an OD of 0.58"; depending on their thickness, one may suffice. I then drilled out the washer(s), using a series of bits, such that the threaded end of the stalk could pass through; the threads have an OD of about 0.39" (10mm). Doing this drilling was a PITA, because you will wind up not having much material left in the washer; if you clamp it on edge in a vise with much force, you'll wind up bending it. Last, I also bought a pretty hard neoprene (or something like that) black washer, with an OD of about 0.63" (16mm); this covered up the metal washer, and the buggered area on the cover, and still allowed me to rigidly tighten the adapter nut.

Cheers,

Bill P.
