I would love to use those on my 2010 thruxton but the mountings are kind of weird. They are not symmetrical as the right mounting hole is more forward than the left one. To me it would look odd as one mirror would be more forward than the other, in fact it would do my head in. Does anyone know a work around for that so they would look the same? I need to get rid of the bar ends.

Very stupid question:

I noticed that the description on bc's website says:

"Mirrors sold in individual units"

This threw me off. Does this mean I have to buy two quantities of this or does each unit come in pairs?

I would say that "each mirror sold individually" might be somewhat clearer. But...why would they say "sold in individual units" if they meant "sold in pairs?" Moreover, both mirrors for $20 seems too much to hope for *grin*

bah, i thought so! ok $100 down the drain :-( . i guess by looking at the picture, i can't see how one unit can go on both sides. for example, it's showing a picturing of the right side... i can't figure out how it would be adjusted to go on the left.

Just checked on BC and they only have the Napoleon bar ends. Do they carry these anywhere else and do they come in chrome?

Huh...Wonder why I couldn't find those last night. Thanks. Ordering a set today. I actually love the look of the stock mirrors - a bit of a purist - but these seem to have a similar classic look while still giving a lot of added field of vision.

Does anybody know if I can convert my Halcyon bar-end napoleons to fit into the stock holes on the handlebar of my T100 ? I'm getting sick of the wide, wide wideness.

Has anyone used the Moto-deluxe bar end .mirrors from ebay? If so do you like them and is it complicated to adapt to stock mirrors (with the insert)?
