Light Bore-up 181 kit showed up today....
Good info. They are taller than I expected,so I’m gonna give your idea a try. Ican say I had way better visibility today on my way to work, though...Dude, are those on wrong? It looks like you need to swap them, then spin the mirror 180 degrees on the angled post. They look kind of tall. If what I am saying is possible they will probably not be as tall and they will be slightly wider, which is not a bad thing.
I use genuine Honda CB1000 mirrors. They have a similar shape to those. I’m not beating up on your mirrors, I’ve seen those before on Amazon, but I think those have a similar shape to mine when installed like I’m describing.
I think I remember reading a review on Amazon where someone received a set that were assembled incorrectly. I’m not sure if flipping them like I described above is possible or if yours are supposed to be that way. Let us know.
I barely, and I mean barely snugged it up. The DHM adapter fit so snug I kinda wondered what the actual need for it was. I had to press the adapter on there to get it flush and it was on there good. I know because after I brought the tube on to it the first time I realized I needed to rotate it a bit for it to line up with the tube internals correctly. It was on there good, not going anywhere.If you keep cranking the set screw down it starts to lift the DHM adapter up
Hmm... I want to believe that’s it, but I ran out of threads in the swing are bolt before it was tight as well... There would need to be some serious shims/washers to make it work, I put them on the calipers and while the bolts certainly lined up, they were not the same thicknesse/depth as the stocks...I think that is all you need.
