And the Renthal bars? There are very few Copper SV 1k's left in the wild due to attrition- one of many reasons I keep mine.

I painted mine about Christmas 2017.... needed to replace the front fairing and screen and a few things as i had a sheet of what you guys call dry-wall flung up at me of the road.... 2400 x 1200mm (i will let you figure that one) just like a damn wall in front of me and nowhere to go....so i tucked my head tight against my shoulders, shut my eyes incase my visor broke, and rode through it..... Damn, it was hard.....

So, now its a very dark grey/black called Petroleum Mica....

I too have had mine since new......she's a good old girl, and it still goes like stink....

I didn't actually notice the bars....no i don't have that on mine.... ha ha
I was too busy admiring your manly pose....

Do the mirror extension on your bike work very well? I just picked up an 03 and I can only see my elbows.

They are better than no extensions at all. Different mirrors or bar ends would work better.

People were putting the Chewy's mirror extension blocks/spacers on.... i never like the look myself....

I am about 99% certain that mid noughties Bandit mirrors are exactly the same angle for the arm and they are about 1-1/4" longer....

Not the cheapest way out, but, the bike will still be original looking at the fairing end

I might no' be a smart man Jenny....but i can pain' ma copper colored bike a dif'ren color.....
