I read that somewhere about the fittings, but looking at them in the photo, you would think they would expand enough to stay tight. I have a drawer full of shim stock anyway.I've used these for years:
Really good for the price. I did cover the part that gets inserted into the bars with heatshrink wrap to provide extra grip. It keeps them from falling out on the road
There's no vibration in the mirrors, they're great.I read that somewhere about the fittings, but looking at them in the photo, you would think they would expand enough to stay tight. I have a drawer full of shim stock anyway.
How well can you see out of them? Vibration?
Oh those look great, good price tooKen Sean mirrors. rubber mounted, excellent price, good quality mirror. I put them on nearly everything. I used to get a set of 2 for like $26 from Iron Pony but they stopped carrying them for some reason.
Saw this recently while shopping and thought it such a good price I might pick up a set:
It's funny, I actually bought a pair of those because they were on sale at Iron Pony and I scored them for like $19 a pair. I have been using them on the BMW and have pretty much come to the same conclusion. The left one has loosened up on me twice now in 5 months. I had a similar mirror on a bike I bought years ago and always hated that CRG style because that mirror I couldn't see anything. I was surprised with the bikemaster that I could actually see things in them, although in my normal rising position my elbows block my view of them (my fault as I have them on the lowest setting). If I keep the bike I may eventually swap them out with something else, but for the moment they work well enought to not mess with.There's no vibration in the mirrors, they're great.
I've lost two in the past 5 years of using them, they expand to fit tight, but over time the bikes vibrations can loosen them.
Using the heatshrink tubing (in its natural form, not heated) serves as both shim, vibration reducer, and greatly increases the coefficient of friction
