929 mirror ?

I just recently noticed that the mirror stalks on my 929 are not the same length. The RH side is alomost 2" shorter than the LH. Is this the sme on all 929's. I haven't seen any other ones since I mabe this discovery. Also, thinking of installing some other mirrors since the new Convertibar position has nothing but my elbows filling the stockers. It's not that my elbows aren't attractive, I just think it might be better to see what is on my six.
Any experiance with other mirrors on this bike out there?

Re: 929 mirror ?

A lot of people just get mirror extenders for the stockers. I think someone on here still sells them. Maybe nomad-somethingorother?

My mirrors are the same length

Re: 929 mirror ?

I just thought of something after that reply, my bike has been down on the right prior to my ownership!
Just went out and checked it out, and sure enough, while everything about the mirror, stalk, andbase are very similar, there are slight differences!
Must have been replaced after the lowside, probably from another honda model.
Another mystery solved, Thanks Fireblades.org!

Re: 929 mirror ?

the 929 mirrors should be the same stalk length. I have not made any new Mirror Extensions in a while I'll look to see if I have any extras. I am planning on starting a run of parts over the winter.

Will it work out ok to get a set of 954 mirrors, AND add the extenders?
Let me know if you have some, Thanks!

I leave that up to Pete, he is the cute friendly one. I just find odd things as common topic so I try to give people a headsup.
