Mirror spacers

Yesterday i discovered some 8 mm Delrin sheet in my garage.
Decided to fabricate some spacers for my mirrors.
The plastic is soft and is very easy to cut/drill.
Unscrewed my mirror,placed the plate with the 2 holes on the 8mm Delrina and traced it around.
Two minutes later i had a spacer cutting it out with a jig saw.
Copied the new spacer on the big plastic 3 more times.
Used my bench grinder to smoothen the edges.
Two of the spacers will have 10 mm holes to accomodate the threaded protrusions stcking through the fairing.
The other two will have 6 mm holes.
I used bolts long enough to compensate the new thickness.
And voila,no more looking at my elbows and i see what is going on behind the bike!
I hope that this info was helpful.

Doing things yourself is cool! For the record, I'm using Bandit 1250 mirrors on mine, direct straight swap and much longer.

"... direct straight swap and much longer."
Want qualities above to fit N model stock handlebar-control mounts.
Using '70s mirrors from TS250 Savage, re-bent stalks, now.
Appreciate recommendations (clinging to off-topic cliff).

Wish I had seen the post about the Bandit mirrors before I did this...

On the other hand it was done with stuff I had lying around so I can call it free.
Stock mirrors cut and sanded, 1/2" copper pipe ovalized with hammer, dowel spacer (just for fill), fiberglass resin.
The mirrors are now 1.5" longer and the bike looks even more trashy. Only an idiot would steal it.

Yeah, the Bandit mirror is a real clean look, cause it looks totally stock apart from being longer..

Not the cheapest way out, if you go with new ones at least....

It's a lot easier to fit Chewies extender pads. 2 screws out and 2 screw in for a 10 minute permanent fix.
