Found these on ebay today. They look just look Kuryakyn turn signal mirrors, but have some nicer features.
- Bases look identical to Kuryakyn mirrors
- Turnsignal elements look larger on these
- Check out the red blinker on the mirror side, very cool

and the price is $118 delivered...

Now I've seen the quality of the Kuryakyn mirrors, and these can't be any worse.

I've got an email in to the vendor to find out if the mirrors come in flat OR convex glass. I also won a set.

Whaddaya think?

Bummer, FLAT glass only...

Better picture, they look nice, and I found a set for $103 shipped on ebay.

Same quality as the original Kuryakyn mirrors? From what I understand the "original Kuryakyn" mirrors weren't of the best quality.
I'm hoping these are better.

We'll see.

First "Hundred Dollar" part I've bought for the V-Rod that may actually be worth the cost.

They look cool! Will they work as running lights and turn signals?

3 wire system... Yep.

Although from reviews of the Kuryakyn mirrors, the running lights/blinker are pretty much useless. I like them though, and will rely on my observations of oncoming traffic and driving skills rather than rely on other cagers to watch my blinkers.

Very sleek and effective. Really will clean up the handlebar wiring mess.

Personally, I have no complaints about the quality of the Kuryakin mirrors. They give great visibility to the rear. And Convex is good. And I agree with Kennedy, I'd like them brighter (the good Dr. is working on that), but I hated the stock signals.

I already own a pair. Got them in Daytona a month back. I like them alot. They look great on the bike but the mirrors are not as good as the stock were. I got used to them and they were only $120 and I like the clear lens instead of amber. They work well. Just my :2cents:

You guys that have these... Did you require a load balancer for them to function properly?

No I have not. I still have the bulbs in the back till Doc gets the clear lens in. You won't need it if you have one bulb in.
Did you try to mount them. They don't mount well unless you relocate them with the Joker Machine mirror relocators. I am still working on filling the other holes. Looks like I will have to get a crome bolt and accorn nut.
Good luck. :cheers:

I have the Kuryaken and think there great. Two things: 1(stocker mirrors and turn signals... imho suck) 2(visibility also sucked)......so the Kuryaken fixed all that and only payed $129 on ebay for the covex glass which by the way makes a world of difference.

P.S. the kuryakens also come with a load balancer included.

Got a pic? You're the first I've heard of having to relocators with Kuryakyns...

Back from dinner and got the pics. Don't know if this is what you had in mind. I like the mirrors and the LEDs work really well. :thumb:
Don't like the wire (working on braiding the wires and cables soon) and the hole left from where the stock ones fit. :tmbsdow:
More good news :mrgr: when I relocated the mirrors to the holes that the lever pins sat in, it moved them out a little more which gives a little better view to the rear. Not the kind of rear view Ricky G and Kaz would be looking at :moon: .
Hope this helps :cheers:

tmvic: Did you try the mirrors in the original holes? I tried and returned the Kuryakyn Eclipse (same mirrors without the LED turn signals) and they fit the original holes. Kuryakyn also provided longer bolts with a spacer with the mirrors, but I did not need to use them. Is the base of the mirror too large? I assume so, or you would not necessarily have moved them.

Todd, Thanks for the pics... Looks great.

I'm gonna try em out without the joker machine spacers first, but am really excited about these.
Looks like I may be sending the uninstalled Kuryakyn's back to V-mod, and installing these.
Where can you find braided hose that small?

Fred, the mirrors did fit in the old spot but you could not spin them out because of the size of the base. It would hit on the reservoir and they would be tilted in too much. You get a better view with them out farther. :blahblah:

tmvick: thanks. they look great. Do the LED's in the mirror detract from the use of the mirror when they are flashing, either in the day or at night? Would hate to start signaling and then not be able to use the mirror.
