    Mirror for Ninja 650R. 2009

    Hi. I tried mirror Targa from the internet. It is not good, atleast I can not adjust it properly. Either I see my hand or some way off area. Looks like I have to order OEM one. Any suggestions ?
    Thanks.

    Most of the aftermarket I saw have slightly smaller mounts than the stock. You end up with looking at your elbow most of the time.

    I would change the handle bar to put one of those sports one, which will be much lower and give clearance to your new mirrors.

    I also saw some people creating custom mounts (longer), but the look is not great.

    my stock mirrors aren't the best: they vibrate some, and i've had a little difficulty aligning them properly. pretty much a universal problem, i'm finding. perhaps someone has found a better alternative. i don't mind looking back when necessary.

    Barend mirrors from ebay cost $24.00 and work really well.

    CRG Bar End Mirrors

    These are by far the best ones on the market.

    With a Bar-End Mirror you get an unobstructed view of the road behind you, and they are slightly convex, so you see a decent amount in them.

    But they increase your clearance and give a strange look to the bike, don't they?

    What about this: https://www.twistedthrottle.com/trad...view/2516/220/

    Those are extenders you put between your base mount and the mirror arm. That should solve your problem

    They don't look any more strange than the factory insect antenna looking mirrors.

    Also this is one department where I will sacrafice looks for function.

    I remembered tony swapped the 250r's mirror into his 650r and commented that it vibrate less. Probably could give it a try.

    I also saw a mod to invert the position of the mirrors.
    That put them facing down instead of up, so the sight is under your hands instead of in your hands.

    Check for inverted mirrors. The look is awful, but if you don't care and want to see better, that's another option.

    Hi; Thanks for the advise, but how do they work on R side, when you are always turning the throttle ? I tried, not them, but another brand, it scratched my gas throttle side and would not work for the obvious reason.
    Thanks.

    Does anyone have any pictures after swapping the OEM 650 mirrors to the OEM's from a 250? Also, I too, am experiencing the vibration after you reach about 30mph. What are others doing/suggesting?

    Fairing vibration fix will help some. Do a search for more info on that. Pics have been posted of the 250 conversion as well. Again, search.
