hey guys,

so i got the ace bars on ok, my concern now is that i acn't get the mirrors on...they look too small, i think they are fitted for 7/8" bars, when the ace bars are 1" i know i've seen this combo on some pictures in various galleries, but how do i get it to work? also, it seems that with the extreme back angle of the ace bars, that the mirrors can't move enough to have a good view behind me...anyone have any issues with this?

thanks in advance!

Mirrors from NewBonn I believe fit 7/8 and 1 inch - an extra sleeve came with mine to fit well with one inch bar. Should be able to spin them around all sorts of ways to get a good view.

A hacky idea that actually worked for me when I had those mirrors in the 1" stock bars - wrap a bunch of electrical tape around the fittings, enough to make them snug but not so much that it gets mushed back when you try to insert them. Sounds like garbage but it worked for me for nearly a year (until I put different bars/mirrors on).
