How are you finding those bar end mirrors?
Took me a while to get used to mine but as I couldn't see a thing out of the oem's glad now I stuck with it.

when I first saw them I thought I'd ordered budgie cage mirror's by mistake!
Because of their size you can only see anything out of them if they are fitted perfectly, the first 20 odd miles was done with me fiddling,pushing and pulling trying to find the right 'spot'. Almost gave up on a number of occasions but then out the blue you find the exact spot :) I like them a lot now, very minimalist looking yet still showing enough of whats behind you.
Not saying the Norton vibrates a lot but one of the grub screws shook itself loose and dropped out :lol: mirror dropped out of position but hung in there till I could stop. fitted a new bolt and its all good again.

My mirrors may be a touch larger and are very easy to adjust.
Fold in aswell when not in use.
The problem I found was looking down to the level of the bars instead of the natural viewing level for mirrors.
Like I said,took me a while but all ok now.
Really nice bike you've got there,exclusive to say the least.
