I thought I was the only one who was a fan of those things. BTW Napolean, emgo and some others (who copy these) make good ones.
Cool.

Thanks. I've used emgo, but realized the quality is not even in the same ballpark...maybe they have different tiers. They are not as heavy as OEM causing them to vibrate and the mirror image is skewed...not clear compared to OEM

Are you talking about the round style? I might have a pair. When I bought my GS I got a complete parts bike. If you can confirm the style Iíll take a look and see whatís on it. Have it stored at my dads property so would be a couple days before I checked anyway.

Thanks!

Oh, I also am talking about emgo of the 90's. Likely the store bought them in the 80's and stocked em up.
Napolean as well. These had those rubber cone shaped things on the stem. Cool as duck.
Cool.

Thanks. I have the left, really only need the right. I didn't realize how much better the OEM was until I broke an aftermarket mirror and used one of each side by side on a ride.

Y'know there also was a short stem suzuki mirror fitted to some bikes, maybe the 89 GS had short stem. These look like long stem. Still good IMHO.
Cool.
