Hey guys, its been a while since i've posted or in the swing of things so sorry if this is old.
Wondering if these are worth it, or cheapies? Look nice for integrated mirrors but perhaps someone has experience with them?
Any comments welcome, thanks guys!

I have them and the mounts they come with set the mirrors to high. I custom mounted them with the factory mirror brackets. For the 50 bucks there ok. I dont have the money to spend 200-400 for mirrors.

Yeah, I just installed those exact ones myself. They are alright, they are cheaper (quality) than what I thought. But like Hector said, I am not going to pay in the hundreds for mirrors. They are nice, and I do like them alot. But yes, use the factory mirror bases, because the bases that those mirrors come with are cheap plastic and just arent shaped right to look good sitting on the upper cowl.

I have them on my bike and I love them. I think these guys who said they sit to high may have put them on upside down and on the wrong side.
I put held them up to the bike upside down and on the wrong side so they look like they are the on the right side; however, they look like a pair of rabbit ear antennas if you do that. When I turned them the other way and put them on they looked normal (the allen head screw should be on top instead of the nut).
The only thing I dont like about the mirrors is how limited the actual mirror itself can bend but I think they look alright and dont cost a rediculous price.

i like the way they look, would rather have them than just re doing the blinkers on the side of the bike

Ive got those same mirrors, off eBay. Mine are at the same angle as the stock ones. The only thing I dont like is the mirrors themselves are flat. No curve at all so it limits vision. Even stock mirrors arent great but the curvature of the actual mirror surface gives a bit wider range of vision. I like the look and I just turn and look behind me most of the time anyway. It just cuts out the occasional rear view mirror check to assess my general situation.
