    Default How do I see with narrow bars?

    I chopped my bars and just pulled my mirrors off. Was fine for months. Then got pulled over for speeding and not having any. But when I put the stocker ones back on all I see is my shoulder. Cant flip them or they hit my tank. Any ideas from people with narrow bars?

    How about posting some more pics of your ride!!!


    Sorry for the hijack.

    If you didn't use your mirrors before, and you're only putting them on to keep Johnny Law happy, who cares if you can see anything?

    Lol. Thats not my ride thats off the Hidemo site. But thats what I'm planing for mirror. I posted some pics in my build thread yesterday , not that far along yet. Getting it legal isnt high on the list at this point. HAHA

    What Mike said , If you werent worried bout seeing anything before ya gaot pulled over . Just throw as small a mirror on as ya can and call it good.

    X'cuze Me ...but wouldn't installing Bar End Mirrors defeat the purpose of running narrow Bars?
    How about mounting a mirrow off of the forks & have it below shoulder height. that way the mirror doesn't need to stick out so far.

    Awhile back someone posted a thread of a rad little home made bar end miror that was mounted
    pretty tight to the bars, pretty small mirror too, looked better than most of the ones I've seen that stick
    out there aways.




    *Bakalao beat me to it.....exactly how I would do it.

    Here's mine. A 3" stainless "peep" mirror, that I drilled and tapped the arm, then mounted on a 39mm signal clamp. I was going to mount it on the pinch bolt, but had the clamp ready. I too got a ticket so this is my solution.

    I cannot see that well out of it, but it is one less ticket.

    can't you just put them on and not use them?
    you said you took them off and it was fine.
    my bars are 18.5 at the widest i have a mirror but i don't use it.
    it's just so i don't get a ticket..

    Leader style fork... handling for CRAP! I'd take a springer or other linkage type for non-telespopic style. I won't trade the linkage fork off my mountain bike for anything, lateral stability rules even if it doesn't have 4" of travel. If I had the skills I'd build up a motorcycle version of my K2 with disk mounts and a trick shock unit in a heart beat.
