I once sat on a s3 that had napoleons, the miirors interferred with the clutch and brake levers. I would imagine these would as well, maybe if they were rotated higher? Any body tried them?

i have the black ones. love the design. especially like the fact that they don't increase the width (measurement) of the bike. slight decrease rear view but remedy that by passing the car in front.

my neighbor has the napoleon's - cheaper in price, but crappier (plastic) design. go to pj's... great service. won't regret them.

Any trouble with the levers? Could the rear view be any worse than the stock mirrors?

I think the Rizomas look great, but - as has been said in the past on this forum - for functionality I thing the CRG lane splitters are the best.

no problems with lever controls. occasionally i hit the mirror when going for the handlebar, but the mirror construction is solid and doesn't even nudge the mirror position.

again, i have no regrets. i like the crgs too, but they make the bike wider - something to consider if you live in california where lanesplitting is legal.

I use them & I think they're spot on.
You get a much better rear view than the stockers once you've got them positioned right (this can take a little time to get them perfect) and there is no worry with clashing with the levers either.
I have on a couple of occasions caught them with the carbon knuckle of my glove but that was while I was getting used to them.
