    Seems like the OEM mirrors are better than some of these aftermarket mirrors

    I like to see behind me when changing lanes or just making sure no one in the cage is coming up on me with out paying attention "TEXTING" so I like good mirrors. I tried the after market mirrors and they seem to vibrate more than those OEM mirrors. I haven't tried end bar mirrors plus those stick out enough to cause problems when splitting lanes.

    Anyone else noticed that cool sleek mirrors really do nothing but vibrate and make it impossible to see behind you plus put a dent in your wallet.

    I dont like oem mirrors. I dont see clear with them... I put bar end rizoma mirrors and they work ok, but as you say it makes it harder to go through cars...

    I like the oem bug-antenna mirrors, they are distinctive on the stock Grom.

    Been looking for a higher quality mirror with the same look, my buddy has some on his 1978 Honda CX500 but I am not sure if they are OEM from back in the day or what.

    The CB300 mirrors look nice too but i'm not sure if they fit.

    The oem mirrors don't allow me (or anyone else I know) to see anything behind me...all I see are my shoulders. Even if they vibrate less, they are useless as stock. Maybe they would work better with mirror extenders. I have wider mirrors with the extenders and I can see everything behind me now. Much safer for all the situations you mentioned

    I will say, though, splitting lanes isn't something I can do legally, so I don't have that clearance problem with my aftermarket mirrors that are wider. It would be nice if we had lane splitting on the east coast

    I got these and they work good and hold their position and don't vibrate much.

    Looks the same as the ones I bought: Amazon.com: Neverlandback® Pair of Stealth Style Motorcycle Mirrors - Kawasaki, Suzuki, Honda, Victory: Automotive

    They look great - like what OEM should've been. I don't notice any more vibration than stock. Much improved viewing range. No problems lane splitting.

    Note: If you do order those, choose Hoosier garage as the seller because their mirrors have the thicker stem.

    I think the stock mirrors at just a bit lower angle would be ideal. Anyone tried bending them?

    Dang man! I wish I had seem them on Amazon thats a bit cheaper than what I paid. Oh well still happy with mine. They are a lot better looking than stock and work better.

    remove the mirror from the arm, now using a torch heat up the mirror arm till you can bend it to your liking with a hollow pipe or something that won't burn your hand while bending the heated mirror arm and when you get it the way you want reinstall the mirror head and you are good to go.
