Yamaha V Max mirrors seem popular, either using the existing stem or replacing the OEM's altogether. In the latter case you'll need to get two LH mirrors.

Yes, Yamahas use a left hand thread on the right side mirrors. The Bonnies threads are both normal, right hand threads.

the yamaha option worked out really well for me - no more mickey mouse ears, and a MUCH better view of the action behind me.

Yessir, Mr Forchetto has hit the nail on the head.
The Mini V-Star Mirrors go on the stock stems and allow an excellent view.
They are nicely convex and are cheap enough to replace every few years when you just want that new mirror look.
Or when they simply break off. The chrome finish is excellent.
For use with stock stems, purchase the normal pair, remove the lower stem from the new V-Star mirrors and they simply screw on.
Plug & Play.
The stems shipped with these mirrors are much shorter than the stock stems. May be a nicer look. Can't say how well they function.
