MIRRORS-problem solved, cheap

ZRX mirrors, bought them off zrxoa.org . They mount higher and maybe a hair wider than stock. The meat of the glass is toward the outer edge giving you a much wider view out back. As for vibration, I'd say the where the stock mirrors vibrate A LOT, the ZRX mirrors vibrate VERY LITTLE if at all. I owned a green ZRX1200 and put 50,000 miles on it, sold it and still miss it to this very day. Now this may seem crazy but with the green Versys and the ZRX mirrors, as I'm cruising along I can almost feel I'm back on the Green Monster.

Replacement seems to be the best alternative for those with issues. I have finally got the stock ones to work for me, with red loctite for the swinging and wedges for the vibrations. And for the shoulder issue, I have found that if the mirror arm is at a right 90 degree angle, I only see the tip of my shoulder and have a good view behind me. Just my case, many will not agree and should replace them.

I don't have pics but if you go to zrxoa.org you will be able to see them. I've seen them go for around $15 for the pair. Mine were free but for the cost of shipping.These mirrors give a wider and vastly clearer view of whats behind you. Looks natural on the bike but then again, I kick it old school.
