|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.|

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

These look to be very similar.

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.

I got the "teardrop" Emego mirrors, think I got them through JC. Whitney for $15.00
Rock steady easy to adjust and gave a great view.

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 replaced perfectly good Vulcan 750 mirrors with used Shadow VT1100 mirrors off Ebay. Not a fan of the round mirrors at all, and always loved the Shadow mirrors. They fit perfect and are very functional.
Also, Yamahas have left-hand and right-hand threads on their mirrors. Not aware of any other make doing that?

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
