    Default Can’t see the mirrors…

    Hey all,
    Been having this problem since purchasing my 2018 F3S. Due to the way my body is configured (5’08” with a very short torso) I just can’t see the mirrors. The way it works out the switch assemblies on the bars are directly in my line of sight and completely block the mirrors. Anyone had this issue? I’d looked at the Lamonster mirror/turn signal relocation kit but it’s been out of stock for 6 months with no expected restock date that I can find. I’d really love to be able to see behind me… Any ideas?
    As always, thanks for any help you can offer….

    Maybe try a different set of handle bars or risers.

    Isn't it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture offend so many people......
    but our benefits don't?

    Thanks for the replies folks. I’d love to try the Lamonster relocation kit but, again, not in stock. I’m going to try rotating the bars down just a bit to try to improve line of sight.

    This should do the trick and does not cost an arm and a leg

    Thanks Dave but I’ve got an F3…. Picture says this fits the older machines, looks cool though.

    Not sure if it will work on your f3, but I had to roll my short reach bars on my RTL down to get my hands and grips out of the mirrors.

    Lightbulb Bar end mirrors

    Will bar end mirrors work??? Have them on the poor, old, slow V-Max. Another inexpensive alternative.
