Re: Mirrors

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and need some help. I'm a large person (6'6' and 230 lbs) and I can't get enough adjustment to see what's behind me in my mirrors. I would be nice to check for cops before I open my 954 up on the highway. Does anybody know of extended stalks for the mirrors or a different type of mirror to help me see past my fat ass? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Since the website appears to be somewhat troubled, just PM nomad13rr directly (https://www.fireblades.org/cgi-bin....2531975)

Re: Mirrors

I found the stalk extenders to work moderately well. *Better than stock; but, you still have a good veiw of your arms.

Thanks a lot guys for the recommendations!!!

The website is now functioning. There maybe some slight hickups in the near future as I'm gonna be redoing the website content in the comming weeks.

Re: Mirrors

I'm 6'1' 230lb's, I got the extensions as well; moderately helped. I can only see around my arms if I'm not wearing my jacket and the screw heads rust.

That problem was fixed with a later batch. I had the same problem, but I got one of the very first ones

I ordered mine just a few months ago and I still have a great view of my arms...

erionone, not sure how long you have been a member here, but after I realized the screws were rusting I made a post to let everyone know I had stainless screws now with black cap covers, and was wanting to make things right replacing the rusting bolts. If you need new screws please send me your address so I can correct the issue. My email is [email protected]

Thanks!!!
