Anyone know what the metal is under the paint?
I like my stock mirrors on the 2011 and it seems the rubber washer between the post and the nut works well to reduce vibes. Going to put the washers back on this weekend.
The reason I ask is because the one thing I hate about them is the height and where they are positioned. I mean I know I have nice shoulders but I can't keep looking at them while riding. I'm thinking about buying another set of the stock mirrors and reducing the up angle on them. Not sure if the metal will take the stress of straightening then rebending.
I'll see if I can mock up what I am trying to do and post a picture. Key goal is to bring them down a bit and then rebend a bit lower to get them out a little further.so instead of the bend being about 3 inches up make it like 1.5 to 2 inches up.
This should reduce the height and bring them a bit further out. Sadly it also increasing the chance of making them useless if I go boom. But if I slap bar ends on its the same difference so think that point is moot.
