Post by Point37 »

i currently have a $15 ebay set on my buddy 125 that are getting loose where the arm connects to the back of the mirror...i'd like to get a better pair but i also don't want to break the bank...looking for a pair that are solid, maybe 3" convex mirror size...something similar to what i have now but a little better design quality...

what i currently have installed...

The right mirror being reverse thread kinda limits your options unless you use those ugly adapters. They work but look cheap. Depending what thread you researched I highly recommend Yamaha C3 mirrors.

He`s (she`s?) Using bar end mirrors so the threads won`t matter.
Some people can break a crowbar in a sandbox.

I have fairly small b-end mirrors on my Buddy. Haven`t had any issues with clearance when splitting lanes but the rear view is kinda limited. These particular ones are also not adjustable once everything is tightened up though this hasn`t been an issue for me. See them here: http://www.modernbuddy.com/forum/topic30354.html

Im dumb sometimes, and I cant read! The guy who ended up with my old Buddy has bar end mirrors. They hit everything and dont give the greatest view of whats behind. I think they are Speed Metal brand.And if you know your gonna squeeze thru a tight gap, they dont fold close enough to the bar end and still clip everything. They do look snazzy though. I have a Mirrycle bar end mirror on my bicycle and I hit it on something at least once a day while riding, but its better than nothing.
