    Bar End Mirrors

    Hey all,

    With the stock mirrors on my 14’ NC700X, I can see what’s behind me in the lanes next to me, but not behind me. All I see are my shoulders... Bar End Mirrors

    Has anyone put bar ends on their bike? If so, reviews and suggestions?

    Will in Chicago.

    I haven't tried bar end mirrors but the idea of changing them to something else in general appeals to me, especially sense I broke one offBar End Mirrors

    I split lanes and have bark busters already so I don't want to add more to my bar ends

    I've seen a few different types of bar end mirrors, is there something you're already looking at?

    I have just adjusted my mirrors just past my shoulders.

    Haven't used bar end mirrors, but mirror extenders were helpful for the width of view. It also eliminated a major source of buffeting

    I busted one of my mirrors and plan on ordering these

    They look shorter so I'm not sure if that's going to work out better, the same or worse for seeing behind me but I forgot about mirror extenders being an option, so thanks for that reminder

    My neighbor has bar end mirrors that wrap under the grips. They do not make the bike wider. The line of sight is below your forearm and elbow. He likes them, but his handlebars are higher on his motorcycle.

    I like the mirror extenders. Just cheap ones from ebay. They do help extend past your shoulders for better view and alleviates some buffeting. I'm sure it varies with the windscreen you are using.
