mirrors and levers

Can anyone reccomend any mirrors, havn't been able to find any tall or wide enough for me to be able to see over or around my shoulders.

Also looking to replace the levers.

thanks

Not liking the shape or visibility with the stock round mirrors, I walked into a Honda dealer and got some rectangular "Bikemaster" mirrors for about $ 20.
They put them on for me too!

As soon as I rode out, the vision was so much better than stock.

IIRC the vn800 mirrors are a direct replacement. also keep in mind the mirrors are supposed to see your blind spots, and just a lil behind you. you should see less then 25% of the car behind you at a normal following distance, and when your at a light you move a lil so you can see whats behind you better. Well that is atleast what i do..

I'm kinda fond of these (eBay item number is 200061579682 ). You can buy 'em for $34 or buy from this dealer for $17 - they're exactly the same. I hate to admit it but I've bought these twice now - a little slide in the yard back in the summer put the bike down on the right side, and I messed up the right mirror. But I like'd 'em so much I bought the same ones again. They look cool, and the width is really nice for getting coverage behind ya.

I have these on my bike also, the mirror housing is plastic but the stem and connector are metal and the chrome finish is pretty good. They usually have plenty on e-bay so don't do the buy it now price and save a couple bucks.

If you can find a set of mirrors off a older Mean Streak they are bigger and direct mount to a 750.

Cindy, if you want to cruise on the grass or dirt, get a dirt bike, they have tires made for that (but sry to hear 'bout the drop).

Here's a set of levers. I have the Highway Hawk wide blades on mine. I like the feel of them. A word of caution, as experienced by another member also. The brake lever may depress the master cylinder prematurely. I had to grind a little off of the tip of the lever where it contacts the master cylinder plunger I have these mirrors, which are smaller than stock, but I like the looks
