Anyone tried these mirrors??

Just wondering if anyone has tried these and if so, what do they think about them? Do they stay still, do they vibrate, etc.?

Haven't tried them Shadman. I did just install Z1000 mirrors and I'm quite pleased. Although others have an issue with not being able to see much with the stock mirrors, I did not. My concern was with the wicked vibration. One mirror also "failed" (loosened) once during a ride. Even though I was able to adequately see with the stocks, the view is MUCH bigger with the Z1000s. There is MUCH less vibration with the Z1000s. IMO the Z1000s look better. With my AMA discount from Bike Bandit, they cost a little under $100 (shipping included).

I bought them, but at the same time I also purchased the Emgo mirrors from Dennis Kirk. I received the Emgo's first, so they are the ones I installed. I have yet to have the time to try and route the wiring for the one's you are asking about, but I do like them. They seem to be well put together, and judging by the other people here that have installed them, they are pretty nice. As for the Emgo's, I really like them. No vibration, no movement. Winner!

Any part number on the Z1000 mirror. Might just get one to replace the stock.
Thanks.

Yes I have them on my V and I like them a lot.
They stay put and they hardly vibrate. I never had a vibration problem with my OEM mirrors and these are at least as still as the OEMs. They look better too.
