My brother in law has an 08 blue naked and ended up with bar end mirrors due to this problem? Why don't you want bar end mirrors?

I have an 07s red and if I position and angle the mirrors just right, then it is not so bad.

I've had bar ends on other bikes. I'm not against them, just kinda seeing if any other options exist. In all likelihood I'll end up with bar ends. I always get the cheap ones that replace the weights which I'd prefer not to do. Thanks for the reply.

I put on a set of KTM mirrors, so I could see around myself. Their angular shape goes well with the late model SV as well.

They are also the same width as my small e21 panniers all set up so if the bars and mirrors clear, then the bags will too.

Best pic I have of the setup. Have to kinda look closely.

Yes.



Mirror extender/spacers move the mirrors 24mm out and GSF650 Bandit SK5 mirrors which move the mirror up by about 20-30mm and out by a further 10mm. Straight forward swap over as the mirrors are identical other than a slightly longer stalk. I can see everything behind me now.

Sold mine yesterday. Hated to see the SV go but on to other things. I gave the guy (Zach) this forum to keep up on so I am sure that he will be joining you guys soon. Told him this is one of the best forums for info and comradery. Thanks for all the help over the years guys.

Just recovering from a broken leg, cast came off a few days ago, so went on a loop around Cleveland.

I am heading up to Cleveland in a few weeks (not by motorcycle, unfortunately). Will be there for two days and was planning to spend one day at the Rock Hall, some time at the Cleveland museum of art, and maybe go see the house/museum from the movie A Christmas Story. The Rock Hall of Fame is the only must-see for me. Do you have any other good ideas on what to see while there?
