Bought some from Demon Cycles, look like the Rad mirrors from Arlen Ness (the smaller ones, not the Rad III). They are built well, paid only $40. They are on the small side, but after riding with them a little I got used to the smaller size.

I do like to have my own orginal looking bike with no copy cats, but I'll tell you that I put on a pair of Kuryakyn Scythe mirrors. Buy the yamaha adapter for them and they fit great. I've had no vibration problems with them. They are tear drop in shape, so your vision is not as good as you get with the originals. Not cheap however, cost me with shipping and tax $180. But I do live in Canada. :-X

I have those on my Raider and love them. With the Raider you can bolt from the bottom and lose the metric adapter. The Stryker doesn't allow that.

I had the Demon Cycle Scythe knock-offs and they were good and solid as ****, but very small. After my accident I replaced them with the actual Kury Scythes and they are night and day different for seeing what's behind you.

I got some black tear drop ones also. I think they are from Drag Specialties. They vibrate a little and the field of vision is smaller, but they look waaaay cooler than stock! 8)

I put on a set of black Ness RAD III's last week and I notice I have to keep readjusting them as I ride. The bolts were just a hair long, so I had to put washers on to shim them. They look good though and have good field of vision, plus they are tinted.

I put Arlen Ness chrom Teardrop mirrors on this past weekend.

I used the stock locknuts to hide the stud - looks great.

I like the fact that the mirrors use that image reducing glas - whatever it's called. The kind of mirror where it says objects are smaller than they appear. It makes it easier to see whats behind you than the standard glass.

The only thing is that the left mirror - I can't seem to clean it! It has like a smudge on the glass that won't come off. it doesn't look like a scratch - it just looks like oil got on it and gor smeared around. I've use a micro fiber cloth and couple of different glass cleaners, but the smudge stays on there. It's driving me nuts. I might have to return it for another one.

I went with the Arlen Ness RadIII. Does not come with 2nd left hand thread nut for right mirror. I found some on ebay for a Weedeater. I have extras if anyone needs one. I tighten top nut to mirror and lower nut to base. No more Mirrors getting loose and vibrating.

I got a foot peg like that, but I got over it. But on a mirror, I would have to have it replaced.

Just put my tear drop's on from Demon Cycles. Only $45 and order them Thursday night and at the house on Saturday. Rode all day today with em and other than getting used to the smaller size had no issues at all. Not bad on vibration either. Highly recommended for a less expensive alternative.

Anyone else had problems putting on the right mirror? I bought some Arlen Ness Oval Minis and could not get the right bolt on due to the different pattern in the threads. Enlighten me please!
