Mirrors

Just a observation ... I notice the mirrors are a different style on the faired to the naked. Think I prefer the faired mirrors... If anyone has got a set for sale let me know. ......

honestly since having bar ends I see much better behind/beside me, those stock mirrors have to look over the shoulder, kinda useless

Yeah the faired version does have better looking mirrors than the naked, I noticed this in the showroom however this does mean I see the exact same view of my elbow.
Try some aftermarket ones that sit further out, I have no problem with mine now which means I don't have to use stupid bar end mirrors, there terrible. I can't see what people say when the mirror is so small and makes the bike wider.

I guess it's an opinion, plus where I am it's not legal to lane split so no worries about the bike being wider

I do feel the bar end mirrors give you a better view of what's behind you. I can almost see both sides of the bike with just one mirror, they're rounded outwards like a fish eye lens

I really like the look of these mirrors. They have that wide angle view and tehc arbon does look delicious. They probably save weight too.

Those standard F mirrors.
Why can't Suzuki make the rubber boot longer to cover the adjustment nuts?


And Doddy's black terry towelling master brake reservoir embossed with Suzuki. That is good bling.
And keeps any boiling brake fluid under control too, as a side bonus on track days?

I love when people post about an accessory or part then don't tell you what it is or provide a link.
