I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a set of mirrors for a 2005 TW that will allow me to see beyond my shoulders. I have one stock mirror on the left side and half of the mirror is covered by my body and the other half I can see the road. I would like something that extends out a little further but that also screws into the stock mounts. I would also prefer that they were black and not chrome. Any insight or direct would be greatly appreciated.

Stock mirrors with extenders help... or so I've heard. I dont really care about seeing my shoulders. You can also get one of those dome shaped mirrors to stick on them.

Wolfpack,

Welcome to the forum!

I too got tired of seeing my shoulders in the mirrors. I have something that will work for you. It is the best item for under $20 that I have ever bought for my TW.

I liked them so much I got them for both of my TWs.

Here is a link to black mirror extenders. 10mm Mirror Riser Extender Adapter Virago V Star V Max | eBay

You just unscrew your mirrors, bolt these down, and then screw your mirrors back into these extenders. If you decide to get these, wherever you order from, makes sure you get a set that has one right-hand thread and one left-hand thread (like the set in the link above).

Good luck and welcome to the club.

I have one mirror on the clutch side of my bike. I do believe that it is the best design that I have come across for visibility, toughness, and the ability to fold away securely ( with infinite adjustability ) when in the woods. I ordered mine with the longer ram mount extension to insure that my rearward vision would clear my elbow. They are a bit pricey, but I doubt I'll ever have to replace this one. I can't express how great of a design this is. I do not know how to post a link on my IPad thingy, but you can go directly to : Doubletake Mirror to check them out. You can thank me later. LOL. Rubber side down, Dave

I bought something very similar off of Amazon. One of the best mods I've done on my bike. I'm 6'2" with a 32 inch inseam, which means I'm more torso than leg. I stared at my shoulders for a couple years and while riding the road more, I quickly learned I couldn't see behind me until I actually turned my head and looked. The risers are a cheap and effective way of letting you see behind you. They'll raise the mirror vertically and push them outwards.

not to hijack this thread but
i have these same mirrors and love the adjustability, but find them to be really buzzy. i can't get them to ride clear, no matter how i have tweaked them. did you encounter this problem?

thanks

Not at all. I have the ram mount that screws directly into my clutch perch, and I used thread lock as well. A 3" arm connects the ram mount ball and the ball on the mirror. I do tighten the wing nut down pretty tightly, too. This mirror is every bit as vibration free as the ones on my VFR road bike. ( and they are very clear )

I think the double take mirrors are in my future. I'm not too fond of the stock ones.
