I've been trying different mirrors to get away from having 1/2 my mirror showing elbow and sleeve rather than what is behind me. I had some from a dirt bike that worked OK but were kind of clunky looking and hit the windshield at full lock. I bought some cheap $20 each ones that gave me a good view but tended to blur from vibration.

I brought my new 2012 home tonight and started to put the cheapies on when I saw the stock Suzuki S40 mirrors I removed when I went with bar ends. Perfect. The stem shape is very similar and they are about 3" longer/wider than the SWing mirrors. No blur/buzz and good visibility plus I kind of like the touch of chrome.

Very nice, I have noticed the same problem with the stock mirrors!

Got these mirror risers/extenders through ebay from Gascap Dude - under £20 shipped to UK, and quick delivery too. Great mod for the Wing!

Simple and cheap fix----early CB750 mirrors---probably used on other Hondas----In US, Dennis Kirk has them-----worked for me when winter riding gear makes me wider.

Hey... ordered the extenders. Great tip. I was tired of seeing what was in my left pocket.

I've also got the Gascap Dude mirror extenders and they work fine, once you've put thread lock on the mirror bolts to stop them working loose.

I have the same extenders , they do the job well but I've managed without the threadlock so far.

I've also heard that Burgman 400 mirrors will work.

If you can find the Savage/S40 ones they are very solid with a second locking nut where the stem grabs the mirror. Makes sense when you consider they are for a 650cc single.

Fitted the Burgman 400 mirrors onto the Silverwing - work a treat.

Funny thing is - I took them off the Burgman as the chrome looked a bit 'naff' and fitted black ones. They look okay on the silver Silverwing.

Oh for you Yanks - 'naff' = 'crap'

Cheers,
