I loosened the controls so that I can move them by hand (still takes some doing, they don't just flop around). I saw some of these http://www.amazon.com/Emgo-20-64580-.../dp/B002305A1E mirrors at the local dealer and am considering putting them on the Tiger as they fold inwards.

I have dropped the Tiger on the right side since cracking the mirror and it has not gotten any worse, surprisingly. If I were to do it again I would just take them off and put the EMGO mirrors on from the start.
Those mirrors are shit - I had some on my XR and one just disintegrated. They also don't fold - well they do if they are loose enough but then they just flop around.

There was (is ?) a guy in Vendors selling some folding mirrors with extra long stalks so you really get a good view behind you but they then just fold out the way when you hit dirt.
