I fitted £9 ebay ones to my mt10 and they're great. Dead easy to fit.

That's what I've done .... £24 , I'll see how I get on with em .

Good luck. I forgot: I had to position the right mirror a mm away from its natural resting position stuck up against the throttle tube thing as the throttle wouldn't snap back shut, which was dangerous! But mine were expanding flange type fittings so all good - pulled it out a mm, screwed open the thing, done. And it takes forever to get them in the right position - try mirror rolled forward and backward as well as tilt back and forth, and laterally. And you may hit the mirror with your glove initially, I got used to not doing so eventually.

I have a set on my ST R675 and providing you accept your visibility is less then its all good.

Never had a issue with filtering or vibration but do have my knuckle armour scuffed from reaching for leavers. It cleans up the lines on my bike a treat!

I switched out my mirrors for bar ends on my T100 Bonnie visibility just as good as the stock mirrors but I think they look a bit cooler. Can’t figure out how to insert a photo any more, used to just be able to paste it in. If I figure it out I’ll add one.
