Thumbs up Running Narrower Bars?

For those of you who have switched handlebars to lower or narrower bars (I switched to Mean Steak bars on my Classic,and dirt track bars when I had my 750),do you find yourself having trouble seeing well behind you out of your stock mirrors?

I did both times and I recently found these little parts that are a lot cheaper than a new set of quality mirrors.I installed them yesterday and they are great,they come in different colors as well as black and chrome and are very well made and this co. is great to do business with,Quick shipping and they have an online store so you don't have to go through fleabay if you don't want to. I got a set in chrome(imagine that),ordered on Thursday and installed them on Monday.I'll post some pictures later but I though they were a good find

Thanks for the info. Exactly what my friend was looking for to raise his mirrors on his Kaw 900. Price is good for a pair.

Here are some pics of the mirror extenders mounted,also a pretty crappy photo of my tach and mount ,I also polished the switchgear housings and pulled both master cylinders off ,got rid of the dull silver paint and primed ,painted and cleared them.

I also have to redo my cup/glove holder mount, make a new one piece bracket .That one is for trial purposes,but is working well .And the vista cruise is installed and is about what I expected it to be ,handy.
