Buying Mirrors

Hi all, not sure where to post this so I hope the general section is fine. PO broke a mirror and replaced it with a non matching one. Looks terrible. I'm looking to get a new set off of Ebay. Can anybody tell me the side of the threading needed on the new mirrors? For reference, I'm thinking about these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Motor...item3b0919ded2

Doesn't list the 750 as compatible but who knows?

Also, has anybody looked at or thought about adding mirrors with LED turn signals?

Yup, diesel fitter.


They're supplying enough adapters to fit anything except Harley, our mounts on the bars have 10mm threads.

Spockster, you are a god among men, and I thank you. They're nothing fancy but some simple, solid black mirrors are gonna be just right

Whoa, not sure I'm worthy, but thanks. I just like to help if I can, already on my second set of mirrors.

Really liked the "El Chico" mirrors I had first, think they were Bikemaster. Couldn't find those when I needed to replace one. They have the rectangle shape like the ones you're looking at, and I thought the image was better. Not because of the shape but something about how the glass was made. I got used to the new ones though.

The lone leftover rectangle is going on my atv.

I thought the rectangle would give me a wider viewing angle. I don't hate the circle mirrors, but they're not my favorite either. The chrome one is starting to rust and the black one just looks stupid. I'll be glad to have a matching pair

kryptonianjorel, I had those exact mirrors on my bike when I purchased it. Of course they were old and faded badly, but they are very short and don't provide much of a view. But take my opinion with a grain of salt, this is my first motorcycle and I removed them before I really started riding it any.

Hmm, wish I would have waited a day now. Already ordered. Only cost me $12 so if they're crap, I won't be too upset

Do watch out buying mirrors as Suzuki mirrors have right and left hand threads on some models.

Good call. By the look of the pictures, the threads are all the same. We'll see in a few days
