Flipping the mirrors

I’m kinda interested in switching the mirrors upside down. Not sure if I will like it. LOL
Do I have to actually “cut” the wires and splice them back?? Thanks!!

Putting the mirrors under the bars takes your eyes off the road for too long . Just my 2 cents .

Have to agree looking down to much and not forward enough.

no cutting or splicing required. may have to relocate your front turn signals though.

Depending on your riding position, your arms may partially cover the low mirrors.

I conducted an experiment running the crappy teardrop HD mirrors inverted underneath the broomstick bar I installed. The result? Damn dangerous. I flipped them back on top immediately.

I have some after-market retangle-shaped mirrors which I might try running underneath—they arrive this Friday.

Whichever way you mount mirrors, I highly recommend the HD turn indicator relocation to fork kit. This was the 1st mod I wrenched.
