Anyone use them? I need to get a mirror, I hate not being able to see if a cop is behind me when I wheelie. 10mm is the right size correct?

No but I did 3 years ago on my Busa when I had it, and it was in a contruction zone (even tho no construction or workers or nothing just orange barrells) and I got popped for $350.

I have used them for a few years. I'm on my 4th one-the glass breaks pretty easy if it is hit by a branch or something. The last time I broke one I borrowed my friends acerbis to see what it was like-a lot more durable but almost useless. I ended up ordering two emgos this time because I know it will break eventually.

I bought a pair of these....they are really low end (and expect to break them after you hia a branch or something). They vibrate and blur the image quite a bit because the do not fit on the damping rubbers that the stock mirrors mount on. So you have to mount them w/o the rubbers on and get lots of vibration in the mirrors....But still, due to the high cost and the antenna like look of the stock mirrors, I am now looking at getting some medium priced folding mirrors...still looking...any suggestions for the folding type mirrors?

take a look at the dual star mirror. I have had them for about 5 months it took some moving around to get them where I could actually see but I like them pretty well & almost inposible to break. here is a link.

I love these mirrors. http://www.ktmtwins....8312040200.html
They are a little steep, but look good and fold away.

Ken Sean mirrors are pretty stout. They fold down well and dont vibrate. My only problem is that I have a great view of my shoulders and need to shift slightly. Still better than breaking.

I have tried the Ken Seans too. They are the exact same mirror as the Emgo. I suspect that Ken Sean and Emgo buy these from the same Chinese (or wherever they are made) manufacturer. Regardless, they work great for me and I will keep using them. :thumbsup:
