Mirrors

Looking for advise on here as to rear view mirror.
1 - Change original mirrors on fairing (find they don't give good view).
2 - Leave original mirrors alone and fit bar end mirrors.
3- Fit bar end mirrors and remove original mirrors (if so best way to tidy up removed mirrors).

Any suggestions welcome John

why not try mirror extenders?

The mirrors from a Bandit 1200 (not sure about the 1250) are the same, but the stalks are 25mm longer (1 inch).......
99% certain the bar angle is the same too.....

Try the GS650F mirrors they are about an inch longer. I have them on my bike, big difference.

Thanks for those words of wisdom the 25mm extra length will make all the difference.

Looking at 20mm extensions for mirror bases hopefully this will be far enough to miss looking at elbows. I agree with you RC why have wing mirrors and bar end mirrors (but wondering how to cover fixing holes and look decent).
