kryptonianjorel Thanks for all the suggestions. I guess I should clarify. The mirrors I got were mostly tall enough, but the ball joint in the back wouldn't let me tilt the mirrors enough so that I could see behind me. Instead they'd reflect too low or just the ground even. So I need a ball joint that allows the mirrors to tilt mack far enough so I can see behind me. Maybe its my bars or maybe all 750s are like this, but I couldn't rotate the brake thingy forward enough to bring the mirror stems forward enough for the ball joint not to matter.

Spockster Some of those ebay listings I posted earlier aren't clear if they're selling one mirror or a pair.

This is probably the best price on a pair unless you order two singles ... There' not really a left/right unless your buying for Yamaha threads, it will all rotate, spin, and flip to fit either side.


Edit: ok... finally the correct link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/MIRROR-SET-...itleDesc=0%7C0

Rock steady easy to adjust and gave a great view.
Those are about the same as I'm using now, found on on ebay under $20, they're good mirrors too.

Knifemaker These look to be very similar.

GDI I've had good luck w/ Emgo mirrors in the past. They were a sportier, blacked-out style, so can't speak to the quality of the chrome or such.

Sorry man, I considered the threads and didn't think about the length until someone else mentioned it.

I managed to find these, they're made by Emgo, and I know the stems are long enough. The housings are plastic, which won't rust. They're fine as long as you don't smack one like I did. Good image depth too.

Was on the freeway one day wearing my half helmet, at 70mph it felt like the helmet was about to fly off my head. I reached up real quick with my right hand and clipped the mirror pretty hard as I did, knocked the top right off it.

They're back on ebay too....

I'll look into some. Thanks!

kryptonianjorel Bought the wrong mirrors haha. They fit just fine, but they won't adjust far enough that I can actually see out of them. I can rotate the clutch to move the mirror up on the left, but the brake fluid tank stops me from moving the right side. They looked pretty good but just aren't functional.

Back to the drawing board
